Christmas Wreaths Made Easy!!

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?
