I bought these in Gansbaai last weekend for 50c each. So... some of us have a few of these at home and eating from them kind of creeps me out. I prefer the plastic, more hygienic kind. I felt like I needed to come up with a better use for these guys, and here is what I created:
Firstly I decided to spray paint the one side white, just to disguise them slightly.
I then used cable ties to connect the paper plate holders. Each paper plate holder is tied to 5 other holders.
I used 12 holders in total, but you could use more it you wanted it to be much larger.
I then just hung the ball of holders from a existing lighting point in the room and voila...
I took about 30 minutes to make excluding the time it took for the paint to dry. And only cost me a few cable ties and some spray paint (optional).
