ISO Ashtray craft
I am trying to figure out a way to make a nice outside ashtray for in front of my restaurant. I did put a metal bucket with sand in it for now, but I want something little less tacky. I have seen ppl go out of their way to put their "butts" in the bucket, so I know they will use it! I did upgrade the ladies room with a handicapped toilet and joked around about putting the old one out front with a sign that reads..put your butts here, but am afraid of what i will find one day....LOL....if ya know what i mean...yuck! I was thinking of something with a small hole in the top, and had thought about glueing 2 clay pots together, and fill the bottom one with sand...BUT the problem with that is I wont be able to get them apart to clean them out every other day like I do now. On the bucket I have right now, I put a metal lid on top of it with a sign that reads, cigarette butts only...no paper please, but they throw paper in it anyway, as well as beer cans, etc...I want to spruce up the outside this spring and am looking for alternatives to a bucket...and something with a tiny hole that I can make reasonably inexpensive since it could get stolen anyway, and will be easy to replace if need be.
Thanks so much.I appreciate any and all ideas
