How to Make Things Out of Cat Litter Buckets


Throwing away plastic cat litter buckets is bad for the environment, especially when the sturdy containers can be used for many household or crafts projects. The heavy-duty handles are perfect when using the plastic cat litter buckets for storage, but can be removed if you wish to create something a bit more crafty. Once the container has served its purpose, remember to recycle the plastic according to your municipality's guidelines.

Things You'll Need

  • Colorful paint and paint brush
  • Permanent marker
  • Contact paper
  • Scissors
  • Animal pictures, cut from magazines
  • Wide, clear tape
  • Fabric
  • Polyfill
  • Needle and thread

Preparing the Container

  • Soak the container in warm water to remove the label from the outside. You might need to scrub a little bit to remove the glue residue.

  • Allow the container to air dry.
