4.  Trash Bag Spiders

EEK!! No porch or yard for that matter can go without spooky spiders!! Make this spider out of none other than Hefty trash bags. The fall brings tons of leaves, and what a better way to use those leaves than to stuff them in a trash bag to make a spider!! Then just drape the spooky spider on an outside wall or hang on a porch rail.
