A Trash Can Made From Trash

It takes a lot of rolled tubes. If I remember correctly there are at least two magazines in each of these projects. For the rectangular shapes, I wove the sides and the bottoms of the baskets, but I wanted an oval shape for the trash can so I started with a piece of cardboard and glued the paper tubes around the bottom. Then I just started weaving in a 1 X 1 pattern around and around until it was the height that I wanted. Because the paper tubes are a little stiff and want to push apart, I used a lot of hot glue to secure the weave in place as I was working. I wasn't sure how the finish the top but then I decided just to roll the excess paper down to the top rim and secure it in place with more hot glue. It worked really well, and a plastic grocery bag fits over the lip of my new trashy trash can.
