Reader Question: 5 Ways to Reuse Plastic Bags!

DIY Reuse Plastic Bags

5. Pom Pom Lights by Matsutake

Aren’t these Pom Pom Lights adorable? Katie from Matsutake created an awesome tutorial on how you can reuse plastic lids from to-go cups and plastic shopping bags, and transform them into these creative lights! She used an LED tea light for the inside so it’s not a fire hazard (in case you were wondering). These would be a fantastic touch in your living room, playroom, or your back yard! I could even see these as decorations for a wedding.

With so many fantastic ideas, we have no excuse not to reuse plastic bags. I am so inspired by all of these projects! Do you have any projects that you’ve created with plastic bags? Share them with us on Facebook, or post a link to your project in the comments below!
