You can make one out of an old cardboard box. You can cut a piece the size of the top and add another 5cm to each side. Put the box upside down on the cardboard and score a line for the fold. Cut a slit on the corners and then fold them over and tape the corners together. You can them cover the cardboard in fabric that will go with the bottom. Hope this helps
Hi Ruth, You could buy a couple pieces of chipboard ($1 each at DollarTree) and cut to the size of the top of your storage container. Perhaps cut out a small rectangle or circle in the middle or at each end of the chipboard piece to easily lift the chipboard "lid" off the container. If you want you could cover the lid with adhesive spray and use cloth of a contrasting color so it is dressed up a bit....whatever pleases you.
If you can sew you can make a cover. Cut the fabric so it is an extra 5cm all around the measurement of the opening. Round the corners.
Turn in a hem, add elastic through this.
I would use pallet wood or new wood from the hardware store to create a pallet for the top. I would use about 3-4 planks attached underneath with 2 horizontal planks. You could paint it to match the bin, add a design to the top, even drill holes on either side for rope so you create handles to easily lift it off the top. (doubles as a tray!)
