The trash cans have been bugging me. We had several plain white plastic ones that we keep lined with white trash bags, but they just looked messy the way the bag hangs around the top and plain white plastic is just blah....
After - 4 pretty trash cans that don't make me frown when I look at them.
That trash can below, under the sink, is how they all started out.
The quilt paper is from a bargain thrift store purchase years ago, it had lots of paper in it and I've used it for several projects and to wrap gifts.
After I decopaged them all. I sewed big garters to camouflage and hold the trash bags in place.
The crazy quilt one is for the master bathroom,
The garters are just long strips of fabric, about 2.5 times as long as the top circumference of each can. I sewed them right sides together and left both ends of the tube open to turn it right side out. Then I sewed a 1 inch casing down the center and added the elastic to fit the can. Then just secure the elastic and finish sewing the end seam.
The small cans ruffles are 3 inches wide finished, 4 inches for the bigger cans.
