Easy Duct Tape Car Trash Can!

Duct Tape Car Trash Can CottageGalStyle.comI was just about to throw my empty cleaning sheets container in the recycle bin when I had a great idea.

This would be a perfect trash bin for the car.  I’ve been using a bag but I knew this was better.

First I thought I would cover it in Oil Cloth but when I got my box of Duct Tape from Tape Brothers, who were kind enough to give me to do some crafts, it was a no brainer!

No measuring and no gluing needed!  Made me happy and I was on a roll, sorry I couldn’t help myself.Duct Tape Car Trash Can CottageGalStyle.comI removed the label and the leftover glue and washed the container, removed the lid and dried.  Then I spray painted the lid with paint made for plastic.

I did not pre-cut the tape, I simply rolled the tape around starting from the bottom and cut and repeated until I reached the second to last row.  I rolled out a 23″ (inch) piece and cut. folded over lengthwise 3/4 ths of the way and then folded the remaining over that for the handle.Duct Tape Car Trash Can CottageGalStyle.comOnce the handle was made, I cut two small strips and taped each end on opposite sides at the top sides and added my last strip of tape around the top edge over the handle.  Added the lid and I was done.

Here is something people don’t tell you when using duct tape…clean your scissors after each cut or Teflon coated scissors.  You don’t want any sticky stuff on your scissors or it will make a mess when you try to cut…and you won’t be happy. Trust me.

This is super easy and super convenient.

I used Polka Dot Pink Designer Duct Tape on this project.
