Bathroom Trash Can Lid

I have an adorable pup who loves bathroom garbage! Yuck! I really needed a solution for this.

So, I made a lid!

Adorable Joy who is not so adorable with the trash.

Trace the size of the opening on cardboard or wood to make the lid.

I used black marker to outline it.

Small stainless can without a lid and I wanted it to look nice and not have to keep the door closed for heating reasons.

Cut the paper to size and wrap like a gift. I added a piece of wrapping to the bottom in an oval to cover the folds and glue and hot glued for a finished look.

I used wrapping paper to cover the cardboard and hot glued it. Then I found an old knob but it was gold. So I used foil to match and covered it

Poking a hole in the middle for the knob.

Simple but a deterrent to my pup. If I need to use wood for a heavier lid I will. Now I have a template!

I hope you like this solution and give it a try yourself!
