trash to treasure

Literally. I has so much fun making this trash can. I found it at Walmart. I decoupaged all my scraps from the last year of projects onto the body of it. (I had a fun trip down memory lane remembering all the fun things I made.) Then decoupaged the edge with that fun Provo Craft "life happens" paper, covered the top lip in green Rainbow Tape (which you can not really see in the picture) and painted the cover pink and orange. I went on the internet thesaurus and found different words for "trash" and used my Dymo label maker, printed them out and stuck them to the lid. Lastly I added one more layer of decoupage to the whole thing to protect it from scratches (and Riley).
