First we are going to need some book pages. Most old books are threaded together, so simply cut the threads
Thus sections of the book will be released. Now simply cut pages of
Get your mod podge and paintbrush and start covering the trash bin with book pages
I decided to start at the back. I found it easiest to apply mod podge to the bin, then add the paper. And don't forget to soak the page in mod podge afterwards as well
Obstacles like these are avoided by cutting the paper accordingly
Don't worry about cutting it perfectly we will deal with those details later
If you can't seem to get rid of an air bubble like this one
Cut a hole in it
And brush like crazy with mod podge, this will release the air
Use leftover pieces of paper to cover small sections
When you are done secure the pages with mod podge again, especially the edge of the pages
When dry, cut of excessive paper with an exacto knife
Now for the lid. Mine had rounded edges, so I had to cut the paper like this...
...in order to fit it to the round edge. When you are done trim the excess paper. Don't mind how it looks, the twine will cover the edges
Finally place the twine around the edge of the lid. Remember lots of mod podge!
Around and around. You might wanna proceed and cover it all. I left some of the bin bare
And there you go! Though I'm still considering if I want to do something about the edges and pedal... Ideas?
