Winter Wreaths Made Easy!!

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

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!!

Tie it to the top of wreath around the hangers top….

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?

Now, Melissa got an idea when she saw my wreath craft, and she came up with her own idea using green doggie poop bags. This is how she decorated for St Patricks Day:

Isn’t that creative!!! Thank you Melissa!!!

      1. I thought of that, just too busy cooking to do anything else (besides work!), but for next holiday – definitely! Chanukkah really does not have specific colors, even though in America they associate it with the State of Israel and decorate in blue and white – the colors of Israeli flag. But the next holiday is in January, and it’s The New Year of The Trees, and I intend to make a forest of those doggie bags with little grandkids!
        However, I am doing a sushi class this Thursday, and will make a giant Chanukkah menora – that’s a candelabra with 9 branches, which we use to add one light every day.

      2. No, the real menora is silver. My students at the girl college decided to make an edible menora out of sushi rolls. I am teaching them to make sushi on Thursday, so I have to do all the prep at home. Besides, I am having company on Friday night. Today is my day off – I am cooking up a storm!

    1. You are so right! They are pretty, but the cost! You can do these in colors…dollar store has doggie poop bags 4 in a package for $1. Now you have me thinking of the black and white bags there with the paws on it! I’m thinking of my doggies birthdays! Aw, thank you!
