Materials: Regolit shade, hot glue, sandwich paper

As many other hackers before me, I wanted to turn my cheap but boring Regolit shade into something special (and if my idea comes close to some other hack, that did not happen willfully!).

How to:
I took randomly dragged pieces of sandwich papers, crumbled them and glued them onto the shade. It was only about one and a half hours but I love it every day!

    I think that AFHH stands for Another Fire Hazard Hack.

      Thank you for the translation!
      I think it’s a good point, but since it’s never used for longer periods (it’s in my tiny hall), I guess it’s gonna be ok… nevertheless, good point.

    I really like it. What is sandwich paper?

    • Carolin says:

      Sandwich paper is the thin, quite transparent paper you find in the area of aluminum foil and plastic wrap. It comes in rectangular pieces and is used to wrap sandwiches for lunch break etc… I used it for its transparency.
