Eco Craft idea

Today I did a wild and crazy craft project idea that I got from the book Eco Craft, which I've seen at JoAnn and Powell's.  See:
They have some beautiful lamp shade-type ideas that are made from recycled materials... there is a great milk jug one, and the plastic bag one that I copied, and a great room divider made from 6-pack plastic loops.  So check out the lovely hanging lamp shade that I made from one white and one tan cheap plastic Safeway-type bags, then ironed on to a metal circular frame that used to have tassels on it:

All you do is iron the bags together and they make a lovely, semi-transparent, homemade paper-look that you see at IKEA, etc.  And it's so fun!
