Six-Pack Craft Caddy

Posted by on


Are you a beer lover? Want to proudly show your love for it while you craft? Look no further! We will show you how to make a caddy to hold your crafting supplies using an empty six pack box.
- 1 Six-Pack Box
- Paper hole punch
- Grommet
- Grommet tool
- Pen (optional)
- Hot glue gun (optional)
- Ball of yarn
- Can opener
- 2 Tall Boy Beer Cans
- Electrical tape

Step 1

Open a beer from your six-pack and put the rest in the fridge. You need to make space in your box.

Step 2

Decide what you'll be toting around. For larger objects, you may want to remove one or more of the cardboard bottle separators from the inside.

Step 3

Pick a spot for your grommet and use the hole punch to make a hole. Attach the grommet, using the manufacturer’s directions. If you're putting your grommet in an awkward spot, you might want to mark the hole with a pen, gently take apart the box along its glue lines, attach your grommet, then reassemble the box and seal it with hot glue.

Step 4

Stash the ball of yarn in the bottle cubby nearest the grommet, with the end threaded out through the grommet hole.

Step 5

Use the can opener on the inside of a tall boy can to remove the lid. Cover the cut with a piece of electrical tape to keep the can from scraping up your craft tools.

Step 6

Fill the can with art supplies and place in an empty bottle cubby. Repeat with the other tall boy can, placing a pair of scissors in one of the cans, if desired. Place other crafting materials, such as the beer can pincushion, in the remaining cubbies.

Step 7

    Would a thin layer is Shellac inside and out make it more durable? I'd want a heavy duty one I can use long term.
