Is organizing your home one of your New Year’s resolutions this year? Get a jump start by creating a DIY Shopping Bag Holder. You can create an easy solution with just a few simple supplies, and the best part… it’s adorable! You can customize your DIY Shopping Bag Holder to fit your own personal décor. It’s a quick fix that anyone can create, and it’s made with objects that you can find around your home! If you are looking for ways to get organized this year, keep reading!
To begin this project, gather these supplies.
To begin, prep your storage container. I used an old hot cocoa container with a paper wrapper on the outside. First, I wiped out the cocoa residue and made sure the container was clean. Then, I removed the outside wrapper so that I could adhere my decorative paper easily.
Next, cover your entire container with Mod Podge. Make sure that you get a nice, even coat.
Wrap your container with your decorative paper. Make sure that your seams match up and that you press out any air bubbles. Smooth out wrinkles or bumps.
Next, trim your access paper using scissors or a knife.
To thoroughly protect your paper, add a top coat of Mod Podge. Make sure that it’s even and not too thick.
Allow time for your Mod Podge to dry. This will take a while. Put your container in a safe place where it won’t be disturbed. I sped up this process by using a hair dryer.
While your container is drying, you can cut the slit in the lid so you can remove the bags easily.
After your container is dry, you can apply your letter stickers. I found these adorable glittery ones at Hobby Lobby and used them to spell out the word “BAGS” on the front of my container. This is where you can let your creativity run wild!
Last, fill it up! Clean out all those plastic shopping bags from under your sink and stuff them inside. You will be surprised by how many can fit in that tiny little container!
That’s it! Find a great little spot to keep your DIY Shopping Bag Holder handy and useable! It’s so cute, you can leave it out on the counter too!
Recycled, creative, and fashionable!

Great idea but how do you get the bags to come out one after the other continuously….did I miss something?
Tenns @ New Mama Diaries says
This is such an awesome idea! I love the houndstooth, its so cute and snazzy. Thanks so much for sharing!
Cute idea! I’m all for decluttering and organizing…especially in the kitchen.
My hubby will be SO HAPPY to get the bags under control, and I like that it’s pretty! Another great idea Em!
That is neat – I have so many plastic bags lying around. Thanks for the idea!
Cynthia Banessa says
Great craft project! I need to make 2-3 of these!
Laura Martin says
This is one DIY project that I know I will do! And as soon as possible. I have been complaining about my grocery bags loose in my cabinets. I am so stoked about this, you have no idea.
bag avalanche each time I open the cabinets at home! Thanks for the tip!
I love to manufacture little things like this at home, better than wasting your money and you can create it with the design that you want
Kathleen @ Fearlessly Creative Mammas says
I love that, but I think I need a bigger container! It really looks better than the plastic bag they are all stuffed in now though. Thanks for the idea.
Delia @ Blog Formatting says
This is an awesome idea, Emily. How fun, thanks for sharing!
Emily @ Words I Wheel By says
Very cute idea! Think I just might be making this!
This is awesome! Love the idea of having one in the car.
Divine Ms M says
I would love one of these for my car!!
Amanda H @EatHardWorkHard says
Oh so cute! We have a plastic one from Ikea on the inside of our kitchen sink cabinet, but this is MUCH cuter!
Love this idea! All my plastic bags are just thrown in a cupboard. I will definitely be trying this.
That’s so cute! A way to diva-fy the mundane.
Aruna - Young Yoga Masters says
Fun stuff. I agree with Cassi – the bags are taking over. But this is a great container to put in the car and maybe they will be reused that way.
I don’t know if there’s a container that’s big enough for all our bags LOL
