DIY Compost Container

How to make your own indoor compost container. 

I love composting, but we don’t run to our big compost bin outside every time we have a banana peel. Instead we have a small container that we keep inside to put everything in… and when it’s full, we transfer it outside. It manages to keep the smell inside the container which is key. Any large container will work for this project.

This is very simple. I just spray painted my container. Let dry.

I added a chalkboard label and wrote “compost” on it. Done.

And to think I’ve been using this ugly container for probably two years and never did this before… haha. It looks so much better sitting on my counter now!
