Flip the empty plastic coffee red kitchen canisters upside down and create holes in the sides of the canisters either by using a drill or by poking holes in the canisters with a nail or screwdriver. Use a pencil to mark where you are going to make the holes so you will be able to screw the canisters together evenly.

Labeling the contents of red kitchen canisters makes it easier to find what you are looking for.
