Craft Ideas - How to Make a Garbage Bag Wreath
As with some of my other blogs that I have posted on this Memorial Day, I want to first take time to thank all of our brave men and women who have served our country so that we here in the U.S.A. have freedom. I also want to thank those who are currently serving in our military. A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
Now, for a bit of crafting talk.
If you are looking for an easy craft that even the kids enjoy doing then consider a making a wreath from garbage bags. I have to warn you that this craft takes a very long time to do.
Here's what you will need:
One wire clothes hanger
Garbage bags (they come in various colors so you choose your color)
Undo wire clothes hanger. You do this by untwisting it. Then straighten out the clothes hanger but be sure to leave the hook that is already in the hanger. Now shape the clothes hanger into a circle and twist the end so that it form a complete circle.
Cut strips of garbage bags. There is no telling how many strips you will need. But for length try to cut them approximately 5 inches long. You can even experiment with the length to get the desired look.
Now begin tieing the strips onto the clothes hanger. You just tie the strips like you would tie a shoe but instead of a bow, tie a knot. As you finish tieing one strip, make sure that each strip is nestled tightly against the adjacent strip. Do this until all of the clothes hanger is covered but be sure not to tie any on the hanger.
Then embellish the wreath with your desired embellishments. This can be small stuffed animals, baby bottles (for a baby shower), miniature red hats for the red hat society etc. Be creative.
Just hang the wreath using the exposed "hook" on the hanger.
