Lightbulb snadwich bag wreath

Cut the baggies into 1-2" wide strips the length would depend on how full you want your wreath but I think it's about 7-10" then knot them around the coat hanger (first bend the coat hanger so it's round) Here's a link of a garbage bag wreath (which needs a bit of triming

Sandwich Bag Wreath

My Aunt Dot made me one of these years ago ... hers was beautiful and so simple.

She used a metal hanger and rounded it into the wreath pattern. She then used a box of sandwich bags and just tied each one in the middle onto the hanger ... no cutting .. no fuss.

She then decorated each with whatever she felt like .. bows, jewelry, art deco, whatever you want.

Sandwich Bag Wreath

Let me know if you try my Aunt Dot's wreath and how you like it. This is a great one to let the kids help you with ... they can make their own very easily.

Lightbulb Sandwich Bag Wreath

We made these wreaths in our church's girls group when I was a child. All you need is a wire coat hanger, a box of sandwich bags, scissors (to cut the baggies), small decorations to put on your finished wreath. Now, cut the baggies into 1-inch strips and shape the coat hanger into a circle. Beginning at the top (near the hook part of the hanger center the baggies onto the hanger then tie them into a knot. Do this all the way around the hanger pushing the knotted baggies as close together as you can. Once you have reached the top again trim the baggies so that they are uniform all the way around. Decorate with the small ball type ornaments and a big bow at the top. Now hang your wreath and enjoy.

Another idea, instead of a wreath is to make Candy Canes ising bags that are red and white writing on them, you still cut the bags into strips and just tie onto a coat hanger that you have bent into the shape of a candy cane.

I have made these wreaths before but not with sandwich bags.
I have always used Saran Wrap or a similar product.
Now, especially with all of the colors that plastic wrap comes in, you could make a wreath for any season with it.
Cut/tear strips about 2 " wide and just twist around the coat hanger. The plastic wrap sort of holds itself in place.
Give it a try!
