Banish that clutter using the Six-Pack Organizer! Wow!

One of the pillars of the DIY temple is a keen eye for repurposing, and this is certainly one of the more clever examples I’ve come across recently. While I generally reuse any container that I can, this was a new one. While you can obviously just grab any ol’ cardboard brew caddy and carry it plain, there’s also an option to get intensely crafty (or embarrassed depending on your taste in beer) and put a cover over it. I used an old Radiohead poster because I was too lazy to go further than under my bed for material (this, by the way, proved to be a bad idea as the poster was curled and too thick to properly work with so go simple with your supplies).

To cover: press your six-pack caddy flat, then trace its outline onto the back of the paper.

Apply rubber cement, adhere and let it dry. Then, gently bend it back into shape,  pack it up and take it to the park, or a bbq, use it for art supplies/cleaning supplies/beauty supplies, seal it in vinyl and use it as a shower caddy, leave it in the fridge to keep the door from getting skanky, whatever floats yer boats babies.
