Pretty Pill Organizer or Another Way to Store Craft Supplies?

Here’s a nifty idea that I have been dying to try for months.  Decorating a pill organizer to make it cute or pretty.

Decorating a pill organizer, use it to store craft supplies?

I got the idea from this video on YouTube.  There’s other ideas there too, but this one stuck out at me.  I almost immediately got a pill organizer from the dollar store and……let it sit around.  Just gathering dust.

But let’s finally gather the supplies and do it.

I used some gems and flat back pearls, lace, scissors, and two types of glue.  Aleene’s tacky glue and Aleene’s Jewel-it, my favorite glues. :)

The Jewel-it is specially for the gems since that’s what it is designed for, and it does a great job.  The tacky glue is for the lace because it just needs a good strong glue.  You could probably use a glue gun too if you are in a hurry.

Anyway, I just glued the lace around the organizer, being careful not to block the lids for the little compartments.  Oh boy, is that a bad shot.  These photos were taken on a rainy day. :(

Then I added a few pearls and a large gem in the center.  I could have added more, but I wanted something more subtle.  You could also decorate with bows, ribbon, flowers, etc.

Now the final step is to fill it, but I’m not going to fill it with medicine or supplements though that is a good idea.

I’m using it for craft supplies.  These organizers are perfect for storing things like jewelry findings and snaps.  Keeps them secure and neatly organized, in the cutest way possible.

Here’s the updated list:

  • coats
  • hearts
  • organize
  • blouse
  • outfit

Two down, three more to go.

Give it a try:

  1. My craft closet looks like a bomb went off in it. I need to do a major purge-and-reorganize session. There are so many neat containers that can be used, like your pill dispenser. Never would have thought of that for craft supplies.

    1. It never occurred to me until I saw that video. One of those "why didn't I think of that" moments.
