A device for holding a flexible, nonselfsupporting bag in an opened position for allowing the bag to be filled with leaves, grass or the like. The device includes a body member having a cavity therethrough substantially in the shape of a truncated right cone with the large end of the cone normally directed downward. The bag is inserted into the hollow body member and the mouth of the bag is attached to the top of the body member in an opened position. Once the bag is filled, the mouth of the bag is detached from the top of the body member and the body member is lifted over the bag. The sloping sides of the cavity in the body member makes the device easy to lift over the filled bag.
