Tribute to Mother Earth
With Earth day coming up, I've decided to dedicate my project # 1 to recycling or should I say up-cycling? I am still confused on how to classify this project:)
We are going to make an outdoor decoration using super marker plastic shopping bags and pom-pom technique. I've learned how to make pom-poms from my Grand Ma when I was only 4 years old and I am still doing everything the way she taught me.

You will need two cardboard circles (I am using packaging material), plastic shopping bags, plastic rope, and a spray paint for outdoors.
The larger your circle the more plastic bags you'll need. In my case for the largest piece I've used 5-extra large shopping bags, 7 - large shopping bags and 73 - regular plastic shopping bags. Total of 85 bags to create 18" ball.
They r on C+K somewhere
I agree, using a brush would be much eco-friendlier and I hope people who like to make this project will read your post and take it to consideration, thanks a lot. I've used spray paint for only one reason - I gave myself a pledge not to spend any money on my projects and that was the only outdoor paint that I've had but most of the time - I am a girl with a brush
I have painting plastic with a brush just like you only the outside, works great too.,;_D
