Try This: Ice Cream Bucket Wastebasket

How to reuse that old bin to make a stylish storage item for all your knick knacks.

Simple newspaper-strip papier mache turns commercial ice cream tubs into sturdy, stylish storage. A thin layer of recycled tissue paper sets a colorful tone. Thin strips and jaunty shapes cut from paper bags add the final bit of graphic attitude.
