Can you guess what this fabulous wreathe is made out of?
It's made out of plastic bags. Even though I have a million environmentally friendly grocery bags, I tend to forget to get them to the store. Last time I got them as far as the front seat but never quite made it inside the store. It'll have to be this year's resolution. Anyway, I saw a wreathe similar to this and decided that I could easily make it. I've taken a shine recently to white wreathes and this one is nice and fluffy. I took the bags and cut the back side of them without the printing with my pinking sheers. Then I cut the bag in half and then in strips about an inch wide. I did not measure but eyeballed the whole thing. Then I took a metal wire frame and looped the bag stripes on top of themselves. This wreathe form had 4 wire strips so I was looping for awhile. It took me about a bag a wire section so approximately 16 bags for the large wreathe form. Throw on a bow and you are good to go. It was a bit time intensive but a good sitting in front of the TV project and use for an item you would recycle anyway. The only thing I actually paid for was the wire wreathe form.
