Urban Threads actually turned plastic Target bags into a lamp. I still can't quite believe it even after reading the tute!
First they fuse the bags. To do that, you'll need the following:
- parchment paper
- a scissor
- an iron
- leftover plastic bags
To make the lamp's structure, you'll need this stuff:
- 6 thin square dowels, about 1/4" thick
- a small wood saw
- wood glue
- binder clips
- X-acto knife, ruler and pencil
- You'll need some sort of light source. UT used a battery-operated, stick-up bulb, but they also suggest a lamp kit--with an energy efficient bulb, of course--or a flameless LED candle.
Urban Threads likes to add thread to their projects, so to do that to this lamp you'll need a few more things. They include:
- embroidery thread
- an embroidery design (you can download UT's for a buck)
- embroidery needle
- pen and tape
To see how it's all put together, head on over to Urban Threads.
I can't decide if I like the Target bulls-eyes or not. You?
