- Old trash can
- Spray paint
- Mod Podge
- Foam Brush
- Fabric or paper
The inside of the can was rusty, so I spray painted it - and got the lip.
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.
Then I rolled the fabric on and smoothed out the bubbles.
- Once the fabric was in place, I went over the outside with another coat of Mod Podge.
