    1. Clean container with a damp paper towel. Using three different circle sizes, trace them onto surface (inside and outside) randomly with a dry erase marker.
    2. Instruction #1
    3. Using a #6 round brush, paint several circles in each color. Paint only up to the inside edge of the dry erase marker.
    4. Instruction #2
    5. Gently wipe the dry erase marker off of the circle edges. Paint each circle with a second coat of paint. Use the #2 round brush to paint the edges and clean up any rough spots. Use the 1/2" flat brush to fill in larger areas.

    7. Use 2" flat to drybrush the jute rope with Cottonball.
    8. Instruction #4
    9. Attach the jute rope to the top and bottom of the bin with E6000. Join the ends by cutting each one on an angle and laying one over the other.
    10. Instruction #5
    11. Print lettering of choice onto plain paper. Use transfer paper to trace them onto wood shape. Using a #0 round brush, paint the letters in Cottonball.
    12. Instruction #6
    13. Position Dots stencil on plain flip flop. Use a cosmetic sponge to apply Cotton Ball. Once paint is dried, re-position stencil and repeat until desired look is achieved.
    14. Use E6000 to attach flip flops to the front of the bin. See final photo for placement reference.
    15. Instruction #8
    16. Position the sign onto the front of the bin so two of the edges rest on the flip flops and the top rests on the jute rope. Use E6000 in these areas to attach the plaque.
