So, this post isn't super creative/heart expression but it's something I've wanted to do for a while because I think these are so cute. Shortly after doing this craft, I sat down to paint and that is where my heart expression could come out. However, that painting is a gift for a friend and I will not post about it here until the friend has received it (so as not to spoil the surprise). :)
This post is about a pretty, cute, little trash can for the car and this (http://calicoandcupcakes.blogspot.ca/2011/08/repurposed-project-car-trash-can.html) is where I got the idea. :)
Supplies required are an empty Costco size Cascade dishwasher 'pods' container, modge podge, a sponge brush, scrapbook paper and scissors.
Oh, and wine. It's good to have a glass (and bottle) of wine as you craft. :)
Empty, clean Cascade container - Costco size.
Pretty scrapbook paper. :)
Modge Podge the bin, wrap paper on it, modge podge on top of the paper to seal it (2 or 3 coats). As an afterthought, I realized I should have removed the Cascade labels from the container. Too bad but it still looks alright and, after all, it is just a trash can - it doesn't have to be perfect! :) It was a bit annoying wrapping the paper as the roundness of the bin made it a slight (very slight) challenge to get the paper flush with all the sides. I managed though. (Sorry for the lack of "during" pictures.)
Pop the lid back on and you're done. I actually ended up popping the lid off again so I could put a plastic shopping bag in to act as a garbage bag. May as well keep the pretty trash can clean and pretty! :)
It was a fun and easy craft and I think I will make a second one for Darran's car. Only then I have to first get some more masculine looking scrapbook paper. :)
