sallywahoo, Welcome to the DIY Forums.
Depends on what type plastic anchor you are using. The expanding anchors require drilling a hole a little smaller than the anchor. Then tap the anchor into the hole until the collar at the end of the anchor is at the wall. Then install the screw.
They make a stronger (in my opinion) plastic anchor that looks like a large screw. It has a phillips screwhead slot in the end. You may have to drill a small starter hole (not always) and then take a phillips screwdriver or drill with a phillips bit in it and screw the anchor into the wall untill flush. Then the screw gets put into the phillips slot and screwed into the anchor. Good luck.
