Super Easy, Crafty Storage for Hearing Accessories

Easy, Crafty Storage for Hearing Aids (Cover)

I saw this project over at the blog Charlotte's Fancy and immediately thought it would be an easy, fun way to create some storage for hearing accessories. It worked out really well! It would definitely be a fun project for kids too.

The project uses only the following:

Easy, Crafty Storage for Hearing Aids (Supplies)

  • An empty, clean Altoids tin
  • Felt with adhesive backing
  • Scissors
  • A pencil
  • Any adhesive decorations you like

Just trace out the shape of the Altoids tin on the back of the felt, cut it out, and apply. Then apply your decorations!

I decided I mainly want to use it for my battery storage. The packaging for my batteries usually end up all over the place in my purse, and I really needed an easier way to keep track of them.

Easy, Crafty Storage for Hearing Aids (And Batteries)

That's 4 packs of batteries and they fit perfectly in the Altoids tin. I think it will work out perfectly. I'm thinking of adding another piece of felt to cover the "Altoids" imprint in the top.

I also tried out my hearing aids themselves to see how well they fit. I added another piece of felt to the bottom of the case so they wouldn't slide around on the tin.

It worked out great! I can easily use this to store my aids, for example, when I'm camping. It's not waterproof but I might use this to hold my aids at the pool too. As well as for storing multiple other non-hearing-aid related items.

Hope you enjoyed!


  1. Awesome, thanks for sharing! Maybe this is something I can do with my students.

  2. This is super cute. I featured it over at Storage Geek.

  3. I'm gonna get me an Altoids box!!!

  4. I just made one with a very old Sucrets box, which is a bit smaller than the Altoids box. Now I need something cute for the top, but I have lined the insides. It holds my small aids, batteries and wax guards.

  5. Forgot to mention that it will be more secure than the soft-sided pouch from Phonak.

  6. Love this! I was googling to see if there were any creative ideas for a cover for my streamer and came upon this page. I love the idea of the box for my hearing aid stuff. ;-)

  7. what a cute idea! i plan to do this for my 4 year old daughter. thanks for posting :)
