Kick The Bucket—Tutorial to Transform Trash Bins into Works of Art


Who says a trash bucket must look trashy? This decidedly transformed trash receptacle is quite cute, and easy to recreate! You do not even have to know how to sew to make your own, just grab some Mod Podge and fabric from J&O, and you are ready to go!

Fabric Trash Can

Many crafters do not sew, but still manage to create amazing pieces. Sewing is certainly not a prerequisite to fabric crafts; you may be thrilled to know!

What to do:
• Once you have decided on what fabric or fabrics to use, cut them into the shapes and sizes you want. Pro-tip: Place the cut fabrics around the trash bucket before applying glue to ensure they fit properly.
• Using several bold patterns and fabric textures will make a more interesting finished product.
• Cover a small area with Mod Podge and place fabric onto it, repeating process all the way around the can. If you opt for a fabric adhesive or hot glue, paint it softly onto the fabric itself and press onto can.
• There are different types of Mod Podge, including gloss and sparkle
