Pinterest. It sucks you in and sometimes* you find yourself doing the funniest things.
Like this little project.
That involves ironing plastic bags together. Because you know I love ironing. And then getting out the trusty heat gun (assuming every DIY chick worth her salt owns a heat gun) and using it to shape the newly formed plastic fabric into little bowls.
To be used at your leisure.
As a flower pot?
I love the IDEA. And it definitely makes good use of those plastic bags that otherwise hang around.
But I am not sure the product sells itself well … It might just look a bit crap?
Alternatively people might LOVE a plastic fruit bowl featuring a slightly out of shape Target logo … I’ll test the idea on the craft stall!
Come along to Fairfield Primary School fete on Saturday 5 March from 2-7pm and see these glorious Pinterest creations in real life. All feedback welcome (just don’t be too mean).
I thought Pinterest was just for looking, not doing…
Hey Leanne I am ironing the bags into a “cloth” then sewing into toiletry bags….also thought I could make them into wind socks….I like the pot plant holder!
Hey Julianne, I knew you guys would be doing something with plastic bags … I think in fact I borrowed the idea from your enviro stall board!
