Step 1

Create a label using any font you like on your computer (simple fonts work best). Print out the words, enlarging or reducing to fit your nylon hamper. We used To the Beach and Games.

Step 2

On a cutting mat or a piece of cardboard place a section of shelf liner, printed words facing up. Secure with tape. Use a metal ruler and a utility knife to carefully cut the letters out and create a stencil.

Step 3

Peel the backing off the shelf liner and attach to the tote front.

Good to Know

Stuff towels into the tote so the material doesn't move while you're stenciling.

Step 4

Use a small paintbrush to carefully paint the letters in the stencil. This may take two coats. After the paint dries, remove the stencil.

Step 5


Fill with your favorite outdoor gear and head for the beach!
