Upcycled Car Trash Can

This adorable little bag was way too cute to throw 
in the trash when the handles wore out.

I started this upcycle by cutting off the handles and tearing out the center zipper.

I hot glued a Ziplock freezer bag under the zipper placket all the way around the top of the bag to make the inside waterproof.

The placket was the perfect place to cover the top of the bag.

I added a matching grosgrain ribbon as a hanger.

The buttons added extra strength.

And that's it! 

Easy upcycled trash can for my car!

If it wasn't 20 degrees outside and if my car wasn't a mess, 
I'd show it hanging from the console.

Just too cute to throw in the trash so why not use it for trash?!

  1. Great idea! I'll have to keep this in mind.

  2. What a great idea. When I was driving 50 to over 100 miles a day because of a job I made sure I had a place to put the junk so I wouldn't trash the car. Believe it or not. It works.

  3. Good save! It's adorable and unique.

  4. Greart idea! I'll have to remember this for my car.
