Winter Wreath

With Christmas being over, and the season still ringing in my heart, I know I am going  to have a hard time putting Christmas away in a few days. I seem to always do. I had a beautiful Christmas, and I hope all of you did also!

With the winter here for another couple of months, I’m getting started on making some pretty winter decorations.

I’m starting with this is a very easy wreath to make. Fun and easy for children! All you need for this is a box of sandwich bags and a wire hanger. I picked up the bags at the dollar store. Now in retrospect, I should have used the plain baggies that you twist tie with wire.  I will show you later why. Just pull down on bottom of hanger to make a circle.DSCN4132.JPG

Take one baggie, and tie around the hanger….do not knot

As you can see in the photo on the right, the bags a bit thick where it was tied around the wire.This wouldn’t have been so if I used the plain baggies with no fold top.(I should have stuck with my search, perhaps Walmart.)  I have had the flu the last couple of days and have been pampering myself.

So anyway, you go around tying the bags all around the wire..I was watching a movie while doing this…goes by faster.

When you are finished, you need to go around and fluff the ends of the bags, so you have a round fluffy wreath. I then was looking for some ribbon to put on the wreath. I love this wired ribbon..it has sequins and snowflakes …and looks sooo pretty!!

I had found that pretty snowflake in the center of the wreath at the dollar store at Christmastime. I just hung it on the back of the top of hanger….I think it looks so pretty! What do you think?

  2. Thank you Wendy! It really looks pretty on the door…and any dust or dirt will wash off. There are so many different ways to decorate it. You can even paint the wreath. Even paint some red with the clear for valentines day
