re-use for road use: upcycling projects for road trips

if you haven’t heard / have been buried under a rock for a minute, molly mutt launched car seat covers and they have been a huge hit so far!  same chic patterns and durable quality molly mutt fans have come to love, just on the road. and the launch of this new product line got us thinking about one of our favorite things: road trips!  which naturally led us to brainstorming what sweet, up-cycling diy projects we could do to streamline said upcoming, yet-to-be-planned road trip!?  and thus we bring you: re-use for road use.

creamer bottles ➡️ spill-free snack containers

instead of recycling that creamer bottle remove the outside wrapper (if present) and thoroughly wash and dry the lid and bottle.  fill with your favorite snack to pour out by the handful on the road.

suction cup shower caddy ➡️ backseat window bins

whether you have mini-picasso’s who need easy access to art supplies, or just want to have a place to put backseat essentials, a suction cup shower caddy has plenty of room to keep small items organized.  (if the former, we also suggest getting a set of washable window markers for an easy-to-wipe backseat canvas.)

carabiners ➡️ space-saving hangers

if you’re like us, you have a few carabiners laying around the house.  (mostly from promotional sunscreen and chapsticks handed out at street fairs.)  put those ‘biners to use by hanging small items like umbrellas, poop bag holders and purses from headrests for easy access and increased organization.

diy seatbelt pillow

some soft remanent fabric, velcro and basic sewing tools are all you need with these simple instructions to make a seatbelt pillow for all road trippers!  we suggest upcyling old linens or pillow stuffing for the filling, instead of buying it.

safe and happy travels!
