Big Boi's Shutterbug Video Uses Plastic Cups For Decor

Cool Idea: Create Big Party Style With Off-the-Shelf Objects

Big Boi's "Shutterbug" was stuck in my head all weekend, and while the song is obviously catchy, the video for the single may be even cooler. With everything from a puppet backing band to a mountain made of high tops to Tron-like dancers, the video is imaginative and infectious. I also loved how video director Chris Robinson used everyday, off-the-shelf objects to create a huge visual impact. For instance, this red, gleaming wall is actually fashioned from hundreds of plastic cups. Four kegs create a grounding effect, and a gold-heeled model completes the look. The possibilities for creating decor out of off-the-shelf objects like this are endless. Paper plates could be painted and hung behind a buffet area in undulating waves. Napkins could be rolled and hung like flowers over a dining table. If you need more inspiration, check out this wedding display, which was made from rolled paper and chicken wire. Who says you need to spend major money on party bling? Hit the dollar store for some red plastic cups, a la Big Boi, and impress your guests with your savvy.

"a gold-heeled model completes the look." Great decorating idea! I need to get one. Hee hee. It does look cool, but I'd only use this in a room where it would stay for a while, because otherwise I'd feel pretty wasteful.
