My mom came up with the idea for making this Halloween wreath using upcycled plastic bags.

She made this wreath for a booth that I used to have. It didn’t sell and I was not at all sorry because I’ve enjoyed decorating with it every Halloween since.

Mama’s Women’s Club collects plastic bags and donates them to an organization that uses them to make benches. So far they have donated three benches to the city of Waynesboro.

This is my version of the Halloween wreath.

Halloween Porch Decorations

This is the first time that I’ve ever decorated my front porch for Halloween and I’m loving how it looks.

It also was my first time working with faux spiderweb and I didn’t at all enjoy the process of draping it over the pumpkins. It is not so easy to work with!

  1. Hi Paula! You are the most creative one! This wreath is so very cute and I didn’t even know you could spray paint plastic bags! Hope all is well in your world.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  2. Love it! This is adorable and this is coming from someone who hates spiders. Everyother bug I can deal with but spiders no.

    I love the spiders you added and the ones added to your porch.

    Pinned!

    1. Thank you so much, Cindy! I am not afraid of spiders or insects but snakes and alligators scare me to death.

  3. This is the cutest idea ever! Trimming the bags is the magic step that makes all the difference! I love that we both upcycled bags for our projects!

  4. I never would have guessed that these were plastic bags! What a great way to recycle and create something festive for this time of year. I hope you are doing well, Paula.

  5. Wow, this is so creative, Paula! Such a funky texture-I never would have thought to spray paint plastic bags! And really like the fake spiderweb over the top. Super cool! Pinned!
