I’ve wanted a reflector for some time now, but never really wanted to pay $40+ dollars for some shiny fabric. So, when I was at my local dollar store and saw an emergency blanket for $1.25…I started thinking…and this is what I ended up with:
1) Cut open the box and add Duct Tape along the folds to reinforce it.
2) Spray adhesive onto the cardboard and lay down emergency blanket. Fold over the edges to get rid of any excess material. You’ll want to crumple the blanket before putting it on to get even light distribution.
And, that’s about it. It took me ~10 minutes to finish the whole thing.
