How to make Trash Bag Spiderwebs
Directions to make trash bag spiderwebs:
Keep the plastic bag folded up as it comes off of the roll.
Trim the end of the bag where it’s sealed together. My trash bags were contractor size. They had a little tab on the top that I cut off. You’ll need to cut of the top whether it’s a tab or a drawstring bag.
Trim the opposite end to remove the “tab” shape or drawstring. Discard.
Unfold the bag (not opening the bag, just unfolding. Trim the right and left seam so you have 2 pieces. Set 1 piece aside.
Lay one piece of black plastic onto a flat surface and the bottom right corner to the top left corner until it makes a square.
Trim the excess and discard.
Fold the triangle piece you have three more times until you have a skinny triangle.
Tape the folded edges together by gently applying masking tape.
Lightly apply as you’ll need to remove later.
Trim the open, pointed end in a arc shape.
Continue to trim the bag, at about 1-2″ apart, keeping the arc shape to create a web.
Trim the point off on an angle.
Remove the tape and discard.
Open the bag to reveal a spider web and hang!
You are done!! Rejoice in your craftiness.
