A-ha

Sorting through the bags from many Christmas shopping trips, I had a big A-ha moment!  Back in October, I made a wreath from a wire hanger and black trash bags.  So in my never ending goal to reuse stuff, I decided to do the same with white shopping bags.  So...viola...a wreath!  With a little touch of burlap.

  1. So lovely!! I love how fluffy and white it is and the fact that you used old shopping bags. Great idea!

    I shared it on my TT&J fab page and linked to you :)

    Did you use a wire coat hanger for it? and just tie the bags around it? Thanks

  4. I am going to make another one, and post the tutorial. I used bags from Target, JoAnn's, Walmart and anything else I could find. It was a bit messy, but so worth it! I will def share this with you all! And yes, a wire hanger is all it took.

  6. Love it! I saw this earlier today and it inspired me to make a "Kissing ball" with plastic bags. I love the light fluffy result despite the huge mess I made with scraps of plastic! http://thepurplehound.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-can-styrofoam-ball-and-pile-of.html
