So I picked out fabric that was heavier, like a lightweight denim. Using pinking shears I cut a piece of fabric the size needed to cover the oatmeal container. I used paperclips to hold the fabric in place as I rolled the container to get the correct length.
Using a hot blue gun, I glued the fabric to the container, securing it down the side, the bottom and over the top rim.
Then I added my tools.
The lid was left over, so I decided to re-purpose it too. I traced it out on the fabric, then cut it out with pinking shears and put the cut circle on the top of the lid. Then I added three round magnets on the backside of the lid, making it a fridge magnet.
This was easy to do and went quick. You could use scrapbook paper instead of fabric. I decided to keep it simple in style, but you could decorate a container like as much as you want.
