Materials: RATIONELL VARIERA, LED lights, car bateries, cables Description: This year my home town’s (Lisbon, Portugal) city hall had a very nice and cost effective idea for street lighting! Instead of spending the usual bundle of money in x-mas lighting they did a little hack of their own!
This is not my hack, and I’m not sure there has been any artist or Ikea endorsement behind the idea, but I sure liked it a lot!
All it took were a lot of RATIONELL VARIERA plastic bag holders, some LED lights, cable and car batteries….And there you have it!!! X-mas lighting! I’m just sorry I photographed it in the day time and you can see them lightened up!
I tried searching for a photo of the lights at night but I couldn’t find one online. If anyone has a photo, please send it in or post a link in the comments section. I would love to see how they look at night. ~ Jules
