When brainstorming what I wanted to create for my upcycle project, my first step was to look around my house, and see what extra stuff I had laying around that I didn’t use anymore. I discovered that I have a lot of extra 35mm film stuffed in the back of my closet. Looking around the internet I found several interesting things that people use old film for such as making jewelry, blinds for your window, and using them as a canvas for paintings.
I decided to pursue creating a lamp out of my extra film. The lampshade itself we be made up of 35mm film. This allows the film to be illuminated, and the pictures to be on full display. This is a much better use for all my film, instead of it sitting in the back of my closet never being looked at. Below are some pictures that I am using for inspiration.
The lampshade is coming along nicely now, but is a little time consuming to make. I am very excited for the final product to be in use in my apartment!
