Step 1: Chosing Your Garbage Can

Make sure you get a cylindrical grabage can with a dome top. Make sure the material is one that is able to be spray painted.

Step 2: Design the Garbage Can

Design and draw out how your R2 unit will look like. Get creative or base it out on a pre-existing R2 unit.

Step 3: Painting Your R2 Unit

Tape off the pieces that will be painted each colour. Spray paint each piece until under colour is not showing through. Multiple coats may be needed.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Remove the tape and using a sharpie or paint pen, outline the details of the R2 detail and fill in any missed spots.

Step 5: Enjoy

Place in your home and enjoy your own R2 cleaning unit!

    This is so clever idea! I've got a garbage can that needs an R2 makeover just like this. Excellent idea!

    Thanks! So cheap to make too since you already have the garbage can, all you need is some spray paint, tape, and a black marker. Happy designing! :)
