DIY Idea: Recycled Plastic Bag Pendant Light

The Three Rs Blog

Every once in a while I'll forget my grocery totes and end up leaving with plastic bags. This tutorial from The Three Rs Blog finds a great new way to use up the bags I bring home by accident. Chic and modern looking, you can make your own for almost no money!Using plastic bags with black and white printing, this light fixture has a full and cohesive look.

As described by The Three Rs:

The bags I chose to use were white with some black printing, and they were a heavier and higher quality of plastic than the normal drug store plastic bag. Personally I liked the heavier feel of the plastic, and I thought the black pieces gave it some real interest. But, you can use any type of plastic bag you have lying around your house, and you can either choose to show colors or keep it purely white, its all up to your own personal preference.

One question, though: plastic + heat? Those two normally don't go together...
