ECOstorageTM flip lid bin
Hot glue gun
Jute (length will vary dependent on thickness of desired rope)
4 caster wheels
Decorations of choice (we used a white wooden letter and artificial flowers)
Step 1: Head to your local retailer or jump online and purchase one of our containers from our ECOstorageTM line! We will be using our 12 gallon Flip Lid ECOstorageTM container.
Step 2: Gather/purchase all of your crafting supplies and decorations
Step 3: Take your jute, or desired rope-like material and tie the very end in a knot. With your glue gun apply an ample amount of glue to the knot and put it at the bottom of the bin.
Step 4: Wrap the jute around the outside of the bin and glue each row close together to ensure bin isn’t exposed through the layers. Repeat this step until you reach the lip of the bin.
Step 5: Next it’s time to decorate! You can be as creative as you like! Make it your own!!!!!
Step 6: Next flip your container over. On the bottom there are four faint circles near each corner – you can use these as a guide to drill holes for the casters.
Step 7: Drill 4 holes to fit the size casters purchased (fasten them if necessary, ours can be hammered into place).
Step 8: Finally, place plexi glass on the lid of the bin so it can be used as a mobile table or mini workstation.
*Note: Plexi glass can be purchased and precut to your dimensions at most big box retailers.
