These Recycled Milk Carton Pantry Organizers make your pantry look and feel organized.  Fill them with sugar, rice, salt, etc. for easy pouring.  This eliminates opened bags in your pantry from spilling out and keeps your pantry organized. FREE labels are included below!

Recycled Milk Cartons used for Pantry Storage Organization.

Rinse the milk cartons and let dry overnight.  Paint with your favorite color.  I used basic acrylic paint.  Print the labels on cardstock paper, then glue to milk carton.

See how organized your going to be!

    Does the acrylic paint 'seal' them so they are air-tight? I love this idea but I wouldn't want moisture to get into my sugar & salt.
  2. Does the labels and paint wear off from handling them? Do you use a sealer over label and paint?

    • Hi Lori! I used acrylic paint. You can get a small bottle at Walmart or at a craft store for about $1.00 or less! :) Thanks for stopping by!
