DIY Kids Art Supply Caddy from Dollar Tree


Little kids seem to accumulate lots and lots of fun little art supplies to all of their artwork.  My 3 and 4 year old love to draw, color, paint and use glue for some projects but have you ever realized how everything gets misplaced?  I knew there had to be an easy and affordable solution out there and I found one at my favorite store, The Dollar Tree.  I picked up 2 baskets with handles for $1.00 each and they’re the perfect size for art supply caddies.  The easy to carry handle is so perfect for my 3 and 4 year old and storing them away is such a breeze.  I added all their art supplies to each of their baskets and printed out labels with their name on it.  To finish off the name tags I laminated them to ensure they’re long lasting.

Supplies Needed:

Baskets with handles from the Dollar Tree

Any Labels (I created mine on pickmonkey)

Laminator for Labels – I used the Scotch Thermal Laminator 2 Roller System which is AMAZING by the way!


This DIY project was super simple to do.  Just print your labels, add 2 hole punches and hang with string to the basket.  Enjoy!
