    How cool would like bargain basement 70s wallpaper look. I guess you'd have to coat it it PVA or something... http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h40/betty_bee/wallpaper-60s-70s-DHD.jpg Oh yeah.

    Aaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhh. :eek: Did we really use wallpaper like that in the 70's? :rotfl:
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

    It's not easy having a good time. Even smiling makes my face ache.
  • That has really sung to me - 3 X boys and some paints, we can have a camoflage bin with something like "steal and die" written on it. My eldest made a wonderful shield for their den with "blood" dripping from the letters, just think what he could do with a bin!

    Not sure my neighbours would be impressed but I always feel we let the street down anyway!

    I love coloured tapes, (electricle tape, neon stuff etc) you could cover your bin with beautiful geometric shapes and paterns, spirals, mosaics and even type! Will stay on the bin for ages, but can be peeled off and changed if you get bored. I'm sure the kids would love to get involved to making pictures on it like this wee robot below.

    Gonna do this and combine it with a trip to the park for the kids.
    Collect lots of leaves and seeds and glue onto the bin with PVA glue.
    Then (because PVA peels straight off non-porous plastic which is why you can make window clingers with it) coat in varnish. My kids (3 and 5) love collecting things like this anyway and sticking is their favourite thing to do and I get an identifiable bin - win all round. :)

    Something that would be simple and quick would be to "write" the address on the front of the bin with glue and then sprinkle glitter or beads etc on top.

    If you want to be more ambitious you could do stripes or different patterns using different coulours of glitter etc.
