This fun little trashcan photo has been pinned all around Pinterest and I was so excited to see it…

I have been looking for a trashcan for my classroom and every time I start to buy one, I always put it back on the shelf. That is because I already have a trash can and really didn’t need another one. It was just that my trash can was old and plain…

So when I saw the idea for sprucing up my trash can, I was soooo excited.  I guess I could have used paint, but I had these rolls of contact paper I bought from Staples for other projects, and decided to use them for making my polk-a-dots…

Using a few squares from the different colors of contact paper, I traced some circles using lids and cut them out…

Then I took the paper off the back of each circle and placed my dots on the front and top of the trash can…

Now I have the cutest trash can ever!! I have no idea how long the dots will stay on the trash can, but I know if they fall off – I can always replace them or go to plan B and paint on the dots…

So now, Instead of an old boring white trash can sitting under my cabinet – I have a fun polk-a-dot trash can!
