Cute DIY Child Paper Bin

Here’s how to decorate a monogrammed plastic paper bin for a child bedroom.

I came up with this idea for a monogrammed paper bin for a child, which is surprisingly cute and very easy to make. Yay!

  1. I marked 3″ x 3″ squares on scrapbooking paper and cut them..
  2. Using Mod Podge Outdoor (in case this needs cleaning later) I glued the squares on the bin, like patchwork, overlapping in parts to give it a rustic quilt look.
  3. I cut two “ribbons” out of a different paper and glued it on the top and lower edge.
  4. I printed the initial on a piece of paper and cut it. I then glued the letter to the bin, drew some “stitches” on it, and then gave it a coat of Mod Podge all over.
