Introduction: How to Make Plarn

About: I make arts or craft project follow along here or go to my blog at http://badartworld.com. I notice when similar items are going into the recycling bin and I start thinking about them in new ways to rema...

You will need:

Plastic bags
Cutting utincils, scissors, exacto, razor etc
clip, pant  hanger, cloths pins

Step 1:

Lay bags flat one on the other you will cut through so do not layer too thick.  Clip the bottom of the bags together and holding them flat cut off the loops.  Continue cutting loops up to the clip; they should be between 1 1/2 to 2 inches. 

Step 2:

After you have lots of loops hook them together with a larks head knot.   Pass one loop through the other and pull the loop through itself.  Make snug repeat.

Example of larks head.

Step 3:

Roll the loops into a ball and  start crochting, knitting or make a rope.  The possibilities are endless!  Tell me what you will make and I will share more here!

Step 4: GO!
