Valentine Can

This year for my son's 5th grade class they were give #10 size cans to decorate for their Valentine's party next week.
He informed me that they are having a decorating contest and the awards will be for things like, the prettiest, the most unique, the funniest, the ugliest, etc.


When he heard the ugliest he decided right away that he wanted to make his into a trash can.
After all, it already kinda looks like a trash can.


He came up with this design all on his own and I helped him put it together so that it wouldn't fall apart.


We lined the can with a plastic grocery bag, then attached pieces of crumpled up cardstock and newspaper to the edges & printed labels for the front.


I think it's the cutest Valentine trash can I've ever seen, but of course I'm a little partial to it's creator :)
