How To: Turn a Plastic Garbage Bag into a High-Flying DIY Kite

Turn a Plastic Garbage Bag into a High-Flying DIY Kite

Where one sees plastic garbage bags, I see living creatures soaring high in the windy skies—and you can too. The choice is completely yours. But, wouldn't it be nice to spare one trash bag the indignity of holding waste?

With a little dental floss, string, some wooden dowels, masking tape, and an old towel cut into strips, you can transform that trash bag into a majestic diamond-shaped kite for your next breezy outdoor weekend.
