Halloween Trash Bag Curtain DIY

by Crafty Lumberjacks

The title says it all! From drab to fab!


Once we decided our design, we started cutting up our trash bags. The inner two panels are slightly shorter than the outer panels of the windows. We cut the two inner pieces together and the outer pieces together to keep it easy and symmetrical. 

Hanging them was easy. We started with the panels on the sides then draped the top piece over them…all held together with painters tape!

Once our curtains were “hung”, we used our portable steamer to help get the creases out of the bags. 


To the window…to the wall!

That’s brilliant, I used to make almost all the kids costumes from bin bags (I’m SO English I can’t say trash sorry!) but this is a fab idea. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about simple cheap ideas for her planned Halloween party and told her she needed to check out you guys as the kings of all things creative Halloween!
