Instructions:

1) Tear 10 to15 colorful pages out of an old magazine.

2) Cut strips ¾” wide by 4 ½” long.

3) Take the first paper strip and wrap it around two of the spokes. Tape the end of the paper strip down hard to the paper to form a paper chain link.

4) Make the first row of chain links by repeating step 3 until you circle around the trash can. There should be some gap between each link.

5) Now begin the second row on top of the first by making paper chain links that loop together each set of spokes that have a gap in the previous row.

The outcome is a checkerboard pattern that alternates between a paper chain link and a gap. As you build each layer on top of the last, leave 1 space open the whole way up.

6) Now fill in the open space with a trash can label. At the RePlayGround studio, use this trash can to sort recycled paper, so made a corresponding label.

Cut out large letters from the magazine, then cut out cardboard squares and glue the letters on to give the label a good backing. Punch holes in each of the 4 corners.

7) Take an end of each ribbon and tie it to the top rim of the trash can. You can tight the knot by taping it down with a tiny piece of clear tape.

String each ribbon via the corresponding top and bottom hole of the first letter, then loop each ribbon around the closest spoke.

Keep stringing till all the letters are in position. Tie off the ribbons and tight it again with a tape.
