Waterproof Beach Bag Craft

  • 13-gallon garbage bag
  • Scissors
  • Colored duct tape (we used red and white)
  • Marker or pen
  • Yardstick or measuring tape
  • 4 (2-foot) pieces of white cotton cording
  1. Waterproof Beach Bag - Step 1 Turn the garbage bag into a large sheet by cutting along one side seam and the bottom seam. Tape the sheet flat to your workspace and draw a 16- by 30-inch rectangle on it. Cover the rectangle with slightly overlapping strips of red and white tape.
  2. Waterproof Beach Bag - Step 2 Cut out the tape rectangle and flip it tape-side down.
  3. Waterproof Beach Bag - Step 3 Lay 2 pieces of cording across the rectangle about an inch from one of the shorter ends. Fold that end over the cording and tape it down to make a casing. Repeat this at the opposite end with the other pieces of cording.
  4. Waterproof Beach Bag - Step 4 Fold the rectangle in half and tape the sides together to form the bag.
  5. Waterproof Beach Bag - Step 5 To make the drawstring, pair up one cord from each casing and knot them together at both ends. Repeat with the remaining 2 cords, then pull one knot at each side to cinch the bag.
