Total Time: Varies
Note that depending on your piece, you will require different amounts of plarn. Some pieces use only 8 - 10 garment bags, others more than 20.
Go to YouTube and learn how to make plarn. Just search how to make plarn. It is very easy and fast.
I'm curious as to just how long the items you make from this plastic will last and if they are very durable. My understanding is, this type plastic is of such a chemical nature it will break down rather quickly so as to be less of a burden on the environment.
Regardless of their lifespan, the pieces you have made and shown here are truly works of art, right down to the very 'eye pleasing' color combinations.
