My son and I worked on this project together and it turned out nice considering I only spent a dollar on it.
It is made from the plastic bags you get from the supermarket or department store and a wire hanger. It couldn't be simpler or more kid friendly.
We used about 20 bags. You could also use trash bags but we decided to use the surplus of old shopping bags I had stored.
I cut the bags into strips about 2" X 6". They don't have to be perfect. A variation in length gives the wreath character. As you can see we used some yellow and some white. I wanted all yellow but didn't have enough bags to finish so had to add the white.
Form the wire hanger into a circle. You could also do a letter if you wanted. I considered doing a "D" but decided to go simple.
Then you just tie the strips of plastic to the wire. Continue until the wreath is as full as you want it.
I added a bow from some left over ribbon and some garden trinkets I picked up for $1. Had I left those off it would have cost nothing but my husband thought it really needed them.
This project only took maybe 2 hours to complete. My son is quick at tying the strips.
