Upcycle old plastic bags

Category: All

Try this super easy craft project and create beautiful flowers that can be made into table arrangements to brighten up communal spaces for care home residents.

Whilst plastic bag sales in England’s ‘big seven’ supermarkets may have dropped by 86% since the Government introduced its 5p plastic bag charge in 2015, and most of us try to remember to bring reusable shopping bags with us, somehow its easy to find ourselves with an overflowing stash of plastic bags. By setting up a collection box, you will soon have enough bags and straws to make some super colourful and bright arrangements.


  • Plastic Bags
  • Scissors
  • Straws
  • Paper twist tag (or any thin wire)
  • Bamboo skewers or natural twigs
