Bagholder for Plastic Bags

Rate this Entry
What you need:
Clean plastic liter bottle
colored yarn of you choice
Knitting needle/crochet needle
hole puncher
scissors or razor blade (being very careful not to cut yourself)
1 plastic adhesive holder to attach wherever you are going to hang


Cut off top of liter bottle approximately 1/3 to 1/4 way down
take hole puncher and punch holes, closely together, around edging of bottle leaving plastic between holes and edging
Knit/crochet a top on it
Knit a handle if you choose or hang by knitted edging
Run yarn through edge of topping to be able to gather top to close
Leave extra yarn hanging down to use to open and close the top
Roll each bag into a ball store in your new bag holder
Hang somewhere convenient for you and family
GREAT for holding all those plastic bags from stores we all gather and have no idea what to do with!
CHEAP gift to make for any holiday/birthday--$5 to make (maybe cheaper if you get the pop and yarn on sale or clearance)
HAPPY MAKING! Hope this helps anyone's budget/gift making

    This is a great idea for my basement. I made a monster material one in my kitchen but then forget to have some downstairs. Thanks!!!
