The Creative Princess: DIY Christmas Wreath

DIY Christmas Wreath

I stumbled on the original tutorial for this on Pinterest.  You can find it here.

This is a VERY easy wreath to make and the cost....totally...1000%....FREE!

Here is what you will need:
1 wire hanger
About 3 plastic dry cleaning bags*
Pliers
Ribbon (optional)

That's it!  I had ALL of these things lying around.

 

The first thing you will want to do is take the hanger and shape it with the pliers, into a circle.  It is ok if it isn't a perfect circle, the bags will conceal it.

Next, take your bags and fold them width wise a few times, the open end should remain at one end and the top should remain at the other.  What I did was just keep folding until I got a long slender fold.  Then I just cut my strips every few inches.

You will be left with a ton of loops.  Now, take the loops and cut both ends.  Then fold each piece in half and cut again.  Then fold each piece in half one more time and cut again.  You should be left with 5-6" strips.

The original tutorial has you just tie the strips on the hanger, I was not liking the look of this at first so I did a basic slip knot.

Push the knots tight as you work your way around.

That's it!

If you would like to, you can add a bow or some other adornment.

 

*As far as the bags, you could also use plastic sacks, like those you would get while shopping.
Enjoy!
