Materials:

  • Old trash can
  • Spray paint
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam Brush
  • Fabric or paper

 

Instructions:

  1. The inside of the can was rusty, so I spray painted it - and got the lip.

  2. Then I went straight for the Mod Podge. I applied it to the can with a foam brush.  If your fabric is thin, or light colored, spray paint the whole piece so the image doesn't show through.

  3. Then I rolled the fabric on and smoothed out the bubbles.
     
  4. Once the fabric was in place, I went over the outside with another coat of Mod Podge.
