Cute Trash Can DIY (Craft Room Decor)

I love how this cute trash can turned DIY out! It’s really fast and fun to make. It’s also good for me to have things around that keep my craft room tidy. It’s one of things I’m really working on in my newly remade craft/sewing space – you read more about that here.
I wanted a small trash can that I can have next to me on my work surface, that I can just put scraps/ thread/ in easily. Since it was going to be on my work surface, I want it to but cute because I didn’t go through all the work of redoing my space to have it ugly again!
The great part about this project is that you can size the art to work for whatever trash bin you want. It’s easy to do in Cricut design space.
For this project you will need:
Cricut Maker or other Cricut Machine
Fine Point Blade
Permanent Vinyl ( I used black, and glitter gold)
Transfer tape ( for the glitter vinyl you will need to use the StrongGrip transfer tape)
I have a file all set up in Design Space that you can use here.
Cute Trash Can DIY
Step 1 – Cut out the Vinyl
Using the design space file cut out the vinyl.
I opted to use black and glitter gold Permanent Vinyl –
but you can use any color that you want.
Step 2 – Weed the Vinyl and Add the Transfer Tape
Once everything is cut out with the Cricut Machine, weed the vinyl.
Then add transfer tape.
Tip: If you use the glitter vinyl be sure to use the strong transfer tape, but don’t use the strong transfer tape on the regular vinyl! Also if you choose to cut out 2 of the logo, just reuse the transfer tape.
Step 3 – Apply the Vinyl to Your Cute Trash Can
There are layers to this trash can logo, so there’s a specific order that you will want to apply the vinyl.
Apply the largest grouping to the trash can first.
This is the grouping that has the wording on it.
Once that’s added, put on the scissors, be sure that the strong grip tape doesn’t pull up the vinyl you just put on, so tip the tape closer to the scissors.
Next add the ribbon around the trash.
And then the two sewing machine inserts.
Finally add the “A Happy Crafter..” wording below.
Take some time to make sure that the vinyl is smooth and adhered to the trash can. That’s it you now have a cute trash can for your craft space!
