Repurposed Litter Buckets

Hello friends! I decided to take a break from my crochet hooks do something with one of the kitty litter buckets  that seem to multiply like rabbits in our home!  I hate to get rid of them because they are so handy!

I have one I use as a mop bucket but there are some hanging around in our garage. Yesterday, I was in my closet looking at all the bags and small boxes of yarn which has also invaded my war room prayer space and I decided I needed do something with that yarn.

I saw some nice ideas for litter buckets on Pinterest and decided to get to work on a yarn bucket.

Here is the before shot of a Tidy Cat litter bucket

I have lots of scrap fabric, a crocheted heart, letters from Dollar Tree and duplicate crochet hooks and here is the new and improved litter bucket now yarn stash bucket

Here the back of the bucket
I hope this gives you some ideas if you happen to have empty  litter buckets taking up space in your home or garage.


  1. What a great repurposed use for the buckets, so pretty too!! It feels so good to give something used new life!! Blessings and hugs!

  2. What a great idea Regina! You did a beautiful job with that bucket. It’s the perfect place to corral all of the bits and piece of yarn that accumulate so quickly. Thanks for sharing with us.

    1. You're welcome Betsy! I think I'm going to need to do another one because I find more yarn! Oh the horror!

  3. Oh Regina, I love that idea of repurposing! I have so much yarn stashed in cardboard boxes! I'll keep this idea in mind for a new project. No cat litter boxes here (no cats or dogs), but there's a few white buckets from Home Depot around. Thanks for sharing! God bless you!

  4. Regina, I LOVE what you did with that litter bucket! VERY pretty! And now your yarn is all in one place! SO fun! Thank you for sharing it with us.

    1. Thank you Dianna! Like I told Betsy, I'm needing to make another one because I found more yarn. Good thing I have lots of scrap fabric!

  5. That looks great Regina! I love turning "old" things into something new. You used some pretty colors too :)

    1. Thank you Tajuana! I think it's better on our budget if we can upcycle things.

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
