Spiderman Toy Bin

DIY.  SAVE MONEY.  ORGANIZE.

My boys are in love with superheroes which is no surprise because their daddy is too!  Anyway, I had a little Superman bin holding all of their superheroes but it soon became too small for all of them and we needed to upgrade to something a little larger, so here is what I came up with.

I absolutely love it and if we run out of room again, I will most likely make another one of these but with a different superhero.  I went with Spiderman because we already had a Spiderman comicbook I could use for the side of it.

Supplies:
  • red paint
  • black paint
  • pencil
  • paintbrush (small and medium)
  • cardboard box (I got this one for 50% off at Hobby Lobby, I think I ended up paying $3)
  • comic book
  • Mod Podge
Game Plan:

1. Paint lid with red paint.

2.  Search Google images for Spiderman logo, print to appropriate size, cut out, and then use to trace it onto the top of the box lid.

3.  Paint Spiderman logo black.

4.  Cut out scenes in the comic book.

5.  Apply Mod Podge to one side of the box, place comic strips onto the glued side, and press down firmly.  Continue will all four sides, until box is completely covered and then let dry.

For any excess comic paper that sticks off, you can either wrap it and put Mod Podge to get it to stick to the inside or bottom, or you can cut it off.  I did a little of both.

6.  Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of all the comics to act as a sealant and protectant.

7.  Fill your box with superheroes!
