With the holiday season in full swing, we’re surely buried in mountains of gift bags, boxes, and wrapping paper. Not to mention, all those shopping trips have left us with more bags than we’ll ever use to carry our lunch. But that doesn’t mean they have to be thrown out! Those things can come in handy for when it’s time to decorate. You can make a wreath so fantastic, the neighbors will ask for one too. Here’s how to put it together:
Gift bags or paper shopping bags
Thick needle & thread
- With a sharp pair of scissors, cut up 7x7cm squares of your chosen papers.
- Scrunch up each one from the bottom, like a flower.
- With a thick needle, thread each one on to a string in your desired pattern. When complete, tie a knot at the end and staple the two end papers together.
- Mount the finished wreath onto a circle shaped wire, by tying it with string in 4 quarter areas.
Now you’re all set to deck the halls! The wreath can look fabulous on your front door, or just as great used as a table centerpiece.
Style is served!
