$1 Dollar Tree Kids Room Bucket Organizer

Hi Everyone, today we are in Zari's room and muffin is also joining us. I wanted to make an adorable idea I saw about how to build a toy organizer for Zari's toys using Dollar Tree buckets! It looks really cute and works so well as well. Each compartment is for different toys and keeps things very organized. I decided to build the pyramid from 6 buckets and have three levels but you can build it as high as you would like. So are you ready to DIY? Here we go.

For this project all you need are a few colored baskets from the dollar store and sharped edged object to make holes, and zipties to secure the buckets to one another. Projects with convenient items that you can just pick up at a local dollar store are my favorites!

The pyramid organization idea was made from 6 buckets. They are all different colors to add style. 
I first used a sharp point to make two holes between the buckets. 

Next it is time to fasten a ziptie.
I moved on and attached zipties to all of the six buckets, stacking them in a pyramid shape. 
Zari really enjoy's this DIY and it keeps his room really organized. I hope you enjoyed it too!

    Comment... .How about hanging a chain through the middle of buckets, from the ceiling, for tween/teen organization. Or... Hang outside as planters, for us.

    This took me back about 50 years! When my boys were young we collected free ice cream tubs from the local Baskin-Robbins once they were emptied. We washed and dried them, then painted them to use as toy storage tubs. Pretty common practice in our little town in those days which was long before easy to find storage pieces were available! They worked great. Thanks for the memories!

    Cute but please cover the raw edges of the zip ties they can scratch small hands!
