Ok, this is my first craft challenge and I am really excited. Here is a bucket my mom brought me from her work. They get thier bulk amount of pickles in it and the pickle smell wont leave it so now all I smell is pickles! haha anyway, I decorated it with trash and it is now used as a trash can!  Grin

I did the body of all just random wrappers and ads and brochures and stuff. and then the 3 top rings are done in yellow, red, and blue.

Please excuse the large amount of pet related items. I work at an animal clinic and they dumped a ton of brochures. lol

Thanks. I used some Elmers paper glue, but im thinking i might go over it with some mod podge just to make sure the stuff doesnt fall off.

This may sound like a stupid question,but how did you get the wrappers to stay?Did you use decoupage glue or just regular glue?
