Recently my mind was abuzz with a bunch of craft project ideas. One of my ideas required 15 empty detergent jugs, another idea demanded 8 feet of high gauge chicken wire, and yet another required the toenail of a dragon. That's right...a real live dragon. Was I flirting with brilliance or on the verge insanity? I searched in vain for these materials. Then I decided I was better off going with a far simpler idea. That practical thought was topped with another practical notion: use materials I had a surplus of like paper bags. WOW!
Before I realized it, I was making a wreath with paper bags!! (That's not true...I had been planning this for weeks.)
*water based acrylic paint
Cut a circle wreath out of cardboard and paint if desired.
Now paint paper bags with various colors / let dry / cut strips in various desired widths.
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.
Repeat this process until you cover the entire wreath.
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.
This project was this month's contribution to BKIDS.
