Project #98: Paperbag Wreath


Paperbag Wreath by Teri from Giddy Giddy

It’s time to start decorating the house with holiday cheer! Here’s a simple and colorful holiday wreath you can make with kids. This only requires recycled paper bags and a little bit of cardboard – materials that are easy to find and entirely eco-friendly.

What you’ll need:
*paper bag,
*water based acrylic paint


Step 1:
Cut a circle wreath out of cardboard and paint if desired.
Step 2:
Now paint paper bags with various colors / let dry / cut strips in various desired widths.
Step 3:
 Place strip on wreath, making sure to bow it out so that that an arc is formed by the paper. Tape it in place on the underside of the wreath.
Step 4:
Repeat this process until you cover the entire wreath.
Step 5:
Now your wreath is almost done; You can add a personal touch by adorning it with paper flower, paper ribbons, buttons, or a written message.

    We are going to celebrate my little boy’s 2nd birthday before Christmas. And this might be a good idea also for birthday decoration. 🙂 (Mom is making plans…)

    This is super cute…I bet using a paper plate would work the same just smaller.
    I absolutely love the colors!

    This is awesome. I love it. I had been trying to figure out what type of wreath to put on our front door after my son told me he wanted a holiday wreath like my neighborhood (who has awesome wreaths). I think we might just try this. Thanks for sharing.
