How do you make things with plastic at home?

Is there an easy-ish way to make things out of plastic? I had an idea for a fly-swatter-like contraption for catching spiders, and I have no idea how to go about molding something out of plastic. I know how to build out of wood, I can cut, bend, and weld metal, and I even have some idea how glass products can be crafted the old-fashioned way. But plastic? By "easy-ish" I mean: you can do it in your garage with the right tools and materials.
