Plastic Bag Floor Lamp
Have you ever wondered how plastic bag art could look?
I am happy to be part of AEG’s Make art, not Mess campaign, in which they collected plastic bags from people in the streets in Hamburg and exchanged them with jute tote bags, so called ‘Happy Bags’.
The campaign wants to animate you to be more environmentally conscious, to up-cycle, to get creative, to make new out of old!
► Turn the crate upside down and drill one hole in each corner of your crate, the diameter should be a little bit smaller than the diameter of the aluminum tubes.
► Stick the tubes in each hole.
► Take a piece of cardboard, sit the crate on top and trace around it.
► Punch a little hole in each corner and run each tube through it.
► Now we have the base.
► Cut the plastic bags open and glue one edge onto the the cardboard ‘roof’. Repeat with other 3 sides.
► You have all 4 sides attached to the top.
► Use an old lamp you don’t need and just sit it on top of the crate, inside your plastic bag lamp.
► Connect the edges with clear tape. Glue a bag on top, to hide the cardboard.
You can read more about the different projects and the campaign over at DaWanda.
Happy baggin’, your’s truly;-)
