BONUS: DIY Projection Surface Idea #6: Plastic Sheeting

By February 16, 2018Curated Ideas

We set out on a trip to Home Depot to find 5 items that we could use as creative, DIY projection surfaces. Oh, and we only had $50 to spend. We came back with 5 great options that we are super excited to share with you. There are a range of creative products and options that we found and the ones that made our budget are so fun!

BONUS DIY Projection Surface #6: Plastic Sheeting

When we set out at Home Depot with $50 to find some creative projection screen surfaces, we had no idea what we would walk away with. We certainly had some ideas, but were unsure of how many we could fit in our budget. Not only did we spend less than $50 ($40.75 with tax) but we were able to get a sixth option within that price!

Plastic Sheeting – found in the tarps/paint supplies aisle was the one we weren’t totally sure was going to work, but we walked away pleasantly surprised at how this surface could be used as a rear projection screen. As the video shows below, you may want to get a thicker product (I think we had a 2 or 3 mm thick option, but they come in 5, 6 etc.) The surface holds light really well. If you can frame it in and get the sheeting really tight, you’ll be good to go. Take a look at the video below to see just what we did.
