As most of you know, my husband and son are offroad UTV racers.  The team name of “Redneck Edition” is one that my husband picked while talking to some guys at work.  They were looking at one of the trucks and how it said it was a certain kind of “edition.”  My husband looked at his 4×4 Suburban and said, “Yeah, I guess mine’s Redneck Edition!” and that’s how it stuck!  Here’s a picture of the truck, so you know what he was talking about:

Our team goes camping often to join in the UTV races here in Arizona.  We’re blessed to have a toy hauler to haul our UTV and family around, as well as have a bathroom available when needed.  I always see some people camping in tents, etc. and visiting the woods, as their relief.  I saw something online about having a camping kit, and thought I would change it up a bit to better go with what they might need.  Thus, the Redneck Dopp Kit was created.

If you’ve never heard of a Dopp Kit, it’s usually a small toiletry bag, made of leather, vinyl, or cloth, that is used for storing grooming tools for travel. I figured for us mountain folk, we don’t always need all of the toiletries that some do.  A bit of paper and something to clean our hands, and we’re set!

I sure hope that you like it!! I hope you have a blessed day, and please be sure to comment and share this craft on your social media channels – thanks so much!!

Materials/Tools Used:

  • Coffee Can
  • Toilet Paper
  • Sanitizer
  • Rope/String
  • Scissors
  • Label/Decor
  • Tape
  • & Time!

Instructions for the Redneck Dopp Kit:

I started by creating some artwork to cover the old coffee can.  Using a site with free graphics, I found the farm guys and then added it to some other things to make the label, and printed it out.

I then cut a hole in the coffee can, where the toilet paper would be able to feed through.

When that was done, I used some double-sided tape to attach the printout that I had trimmed to fit the can.  I attached it right over the hole in the side, so that I could cut it out to cover it all up nicely.  I just trimmed it in an “X” and then taped it to the inside of the cutout.

After that, I started on creating the rope hanger.  I began by making a hole in the bottom of the can with a hammer & screwdriver.  Making sure to have it large enough for the rope to go through, but also for the knot to hold it and not slip.

I knotted one end of the rope and slipped it through the lid part to start.

Then I trimmed the rope to the length that I needed, and had my son use a lighter to melt the end of the rope, so it wouldn’t fray.

Next, I inserted the roll of toilet paper into the can and slipped the end of the roll through the opening.  This would make it easy to roll from the outside and not have to open when you are in a precarious situation.  I also inserted some hand sanitizer to help keep you clean afterwards.  After all, there usually aren’t any sinks in the woods.

Now, you can just hang it in the tree near where you are camping, and be ready when the time comes.  Easy to use and a great way to camp with style…Redneck Edition Style! 🙂

“They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelation 20:9-10
