Look what else you can do with those plastic shopping/grocery bags! Simple way to make Hawaiian leis. 

Take a strip, fold it accordian style lengthwise, and thread it with a needle and string. Make the string the length needed for the lei. Continue doing this until you have

threaded enough folded plastic strips to make the size lei that you want. I used clear packing tape to hold the two loose ends together.


  1. Oh my goodness...I love this! How creative, clever and super easy to make. What a fun way to reuse a plastic bag. Genius!

  2. @Christine: Thank you...you're right about it being quick and easy. It only took me about 20 minutes to string one together.
