Welcome to Seven Forums Fl44k. See this tutorial that shows how to restore or change, the recycle bin icon. I know it's not the desktop icon you have issues with, but it should restore the original icon that is displayed elsewhere too.

Do you still have the theme activated?
Have tried uninstalling that theme to see if the icon appears again, theme packs normally come with an uninstall file.

You can try rebuilding the icon cache

Icon Cache - Rebuild

You can probably correct this with the System File Checker

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

But it will remove the 3rd party theme and changes. You would have to repatch your system and reapply any customizations.
