Materials Needed:

  • trash can
  • wallpaper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun and glue

Step 1

Lay the wallpaper on the floor with the printed side down. Turn a wastebasket on its side and lay it on the wallpaper.

Step 2

Roll the can over the wallpaper, tracing the can’s top and bottom edges as you go. TIP: To get the perfect shape to cover a tapered can, roll the can over the wallpaper and trace the top arc, then the bottom one. If you want, mark a starting point on the wastebasket with tape to make sure you complete a full rotation.

Step 3

Cut the wallpaper along the markings and wrap it around the can. Trim to fit.

Step 4

Use a hot-glue gun to secure the seam where the edges overlap.
