Now that Spring is here, it’s time for Spring cleaning. That’s right. It’s the time of year when you de-clutter and reorganize your home. Instead of throwing away that old trashcan, why not give it a facelift? All you need is an old trashcan (make sure it’s clean inside!), some wrapping paper, mod podge, and a paintbrush!
Take the wrapping paper and tear it into large and small pieces.
Using the paintbrush, paint a thin layer of mod podge on the back of each piece of the wrapping paper.
Attach the wrapping paper to the trashcan carefully. To make sure it sticks easier, paint a thin layer of mod podge on the trashcan before laying the paper flat on it.
Keep covering the trashcan with wrapping paper and add at least two layers of wrapping paper before finishing. Once the trashcan is all covered, paint a final layer of mod podge to seal the paper to the trashcan.
Let it dry and admire your new container!
This upcycled trashcan is the perfect container to hold umbrellas or wrapping paper or whatever your heart desires! Happy Spring!
