Homeschool Art Supply Caddy

I am very proud of the caddy Chad and I recently put together! Old formula cans that I have hung onto-FOREVER....were just waiting to be made into this. We homeschool so this is an awesome deal for us!!! I found a lazy susan that I won way back in the day when I sold tupperware. It worked perfect!

Step 1-Screw holes in the cans at matching points on all cans. The middle can must have 6 holes spaced correctly to match up to the one hole in each of the other 6 cans.

Step 2. Spray adhesive the scrapbooking paper (after you measure how much you need) to the can. Easy peesy.

Step 3. Put a thin layer of Modge Podge over the paper on the can. Let dry.

Step 4-Take out side and spray a coat of clear sealant on it.
Step 5- Screw the cans together.

This is what it looks like from the inside center. I could have used shorter screws...but this works. We also put on bolts to keep the screws from loosening up.

Step 5-Fill it up with all your goodies!
Mine includes: Scissors, Fat markers, thin markers, color pencils, glue bottles and sticks, rulers, dry erase markers, regular pencils and pens, a few sharpies. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!!
