This is a fairly easy project, and it makes throwing away trash more fun.

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

1. Some type of paper that's reasonably thick. (I used poster paper)
2. A marker or pen or something to write with.
3. A trash basket.
4. Adhesive or rubber band.
5. Scissors

Something to decorate it with
A ruler (helps if you're not good at drawing straight lines.)

Step 2: The Base

You'll need to draw the main outline, which looks like the picture. You should use measurements according to preference and/or trash bin/can/whatever.

Step 3: Cut It Out

Pretty simple

If you don't, just tell me what you'd like me to improve, and I won't care at all.
