Garbage Bag Kite

Garbage Bag Kite

  • Two wooden dowels
  • Scissors
  • Garbage bag
  • Duct tape
  • Ribbons and string
  • Markers/decoration
  1. Take both wooden dowels and cross them. Cut horizontal dowel to make desirable kite shape. Tie the two dowels together by wrapping with string and tying it off. Make sure all angles are as perpendicular as possible.

  2. Take your garbage bag and decorate with markers, stickers or light paint. MIX! it up with crazy designs or collages.

  3. Set kite frame on top of the garbage bag, decorated side face down. Top of kite should be the closed part of the garbage bag. Cut vertical dowel bottom to about 2 inches above the bottom of the garbage bag. The entire kite frame should fit inside the edges of the garbage bag.

  4. Use duct tape to tape around the ends of each dowel to prevent the sharp edges from ripping your kite. Make sure you have the dowels evenly spaced and close to the top as possible. Then tape each dowel end to the garbage bag.

  5. Neatly fold top two corners of garbage bag towards middle of kite frame. Tape in place, covering the whole side. Then fold the bottom of your garbage bag vertically without folding the bottom corners towards the middle of the frame (although depending on your design you may do so).

  6. Tie a long kite string on to the middle of the crossing dowels and add some ribbon to the bottom of the kite for weight and decoration.

  7. Go fly your kite!
