When I was just in grade school, I remember having to bring to class a wire hanger and a box of fold over sandwich bags and we made wreaths. Every once in a while, I’ll have a worthwhile memory like this and get excited to recreate the moment with my daughter. Today, Jazlynn and I made a couple of wreaths to hang in our home.
What you need to make 1 wreath:
- 1 wire hanger
- 50-75 fold over sandwich bags
- energetic hands (it can take 20-30 minutes to finish one)
Bend the hanger to create a round shape (the base of your wreath).
Take one sandwich bag and tie once around the wire hanger.
Slide bag, and tie another.
Continue adding bags until the hanger is full.
Ta dah! Add a few ribbons (can be stapled or tied between bags) for customization.
