Step 1: Step 1 Setup
Collect the needed supplies and lay them out on a flat surface you can cut on. You will be cutting through plastic so use something sharp but BE CAREFUL. We are not responsible for any accidents that may fall upon you. The bowl and trash can should be around the same size so that one does not tilt the other over in the process of making it.
Here we will include a more complex version, with better looks and design.
Use the same colored trash can and bowl and get a back support to support the trash can from the ground. Possible ideas maybe a pipe running to the ground.
Step 2: Step 2: Cutting
In order for it to property dispense candy, there will need to be two holes in the trash can, an entrance, and an exit. Take the knife you chose for this project (I used a Xacto knife) and make the cuts where you want them. I Cut out a circle on the bottom then went back and cut it bigger because the candy got stuck. Depending on which candy you chose to use the hole can be smaller or bigger. For small candy, the same size as ours is okay, for smaller candy the original cut would work and finally for big candy a bigger cut is needed.
For an improved project
Cut out a piece then reattach it with hinges so that the bottom lid is openable and closable.
Step 3: Step 3: Drilling and Assembly
You need to make places for the bolt to go through. To do this take a drill and drill through the side of the bowl. I started by cutting small holes so I could see where to drill then taking the drill and making it the side of the bolt. After you have made the small holes take the drill and make them bigger. After that line up the trash can and the bowl and put the bolt through then tighten the washer to keep it together.
For an improved design
Add more than one bolt to keep it tighter then cut the bolts so they don't stick out into the trash can past the washer.
Step 4: Step 4: Details
I added a lot of extras. Starting with a handle and a toilet seat. To add these simply cut out the design of the handle and the seats in cardboard, then wrap them in duct tape (not needed for the seat). After that super glue the cardboard to the bowls.
For improved design
Connect the pipe to the bottom talked about in a previous step, you may also design a lid for the top of the trash can.
