Plastic Pretzel Containers Become Pet Food Containers

I am always looking for great storage ideas. When I saw these plastic pretzel containers that my neighbor was getting rid of, I knew I had to do something with them. Cat and dog food containers.
I added a label on the front with chalkboard paint.( You can see how I did this in the complete post.) You could always glue on a store bought one.
I purchased a sheet of cat paper and one of dog images for 29 cents each. I cut out the images and then Modge Podge them on the containers.
I cut them out watching a movie. It didn't take long.
Then I used Modge Podge to adhere them to the plastic containers. Here's Claire's container.
Here's Marina's container.
You could decorate them in many ways, this was just mine and it was inexpensive. Each container cost 29 cents and holds so much.
I could have used the original plastic containers, but the decorated one looks so much better in the pantry. These would be great for so many other things as well, like cereal.
