Plastic Sandwich Baggie Wreath

Inspired by Oddie, I started one for our front door! Use a wire coat hanger bent into a circle, and bend the hook into a loop for hanging. I checked out many different ways of cutting the bags and tying the bags, and here's how I did it, on my blog. I bought some Christmas decor in red on clearance, red tinsel garland and red metallic bead garland, to use on the wreath somehow. I really hope to find the tinsel wire gift garland,though.

I cannot wait to see the finshed product! I am sure it will be beautiful! I think I am going to have to make one now!

Hi ya'll, I finished the wreath, and put Mardi Gras decor on it!

RE: Plastic Sandwich Baggie Wreath

Kudzu, it turned out just great! Love the little garland you used, it added just a touch of color, making it perfect. I remember years ago when a friend used dry cleaner bags to make a wreath. The sandwich baggies sound easier, and this kind of wreath won't be a problem to pack away either. Love all your crafty ideas. Luvs

Thanks Luvs! And I can tell you it holds up great in the rain! We had some heavy rain storms, blew it in on the porch. It held up beautifully, and I'm glad I used the foil-type bow!
