Have you seen the trend yet on the blog, I am in full Spring mode and have really been out working in the yard a lot. Last week I decided that I wanted to try and make a compost bin this year so that we have some great dirt next year and so that we can do something with all the left over veggies and coffee grounds we use. My husband as started calling me a hippie with my composting, veggie planting, and recycling crafts. I take it as a complement and will keep on with my hippie ways!
This project is actually so easy you can do it in just minuets, but that is no fun! And I did not want a big ugly trash can sitting in my yard so I decided that before we started composting we needed to paint our trash can and make it pretty.
While we were painting my daughter told me “This was the best idea ever Mommy!” Man I love that kid!!
So this is How to build a Compost Bin.

Paint (you can omit but what is the fun in that?)
