a while ago, i saw this pretty wreath on pinterest and i couldn't wait to try to make a look-alike. however, between classes for my certification, working part time and my normal housewife-ish duties, i haven't had time to do much crafting.
and it was starting to get to me.
so the other day i had enough of my crafting strike and set off to make my wreath. i had been collecting paper bags for a while now from the grocery and health food store i go to, and i had a pretty good stash.
with my paper bags, scissors, glue gun, and a wreath form i found in the dollar section at target i ended up with this:
after i finished my wreath, i sprayed a coat of clear acrylic sealer to add a little shine. i have had an empty frame above our bed for months now, just waiting to find the right thing to put in the center. i thought this wreath would be perfect.
look who woke up from naptime before i could finish this post?
with the holidays coming up, this is such a simple decoration (i love the brown paper bags for the fall!) or would make a great handmade gift for someone else! it was super simple and took me no time (or money!) to make.
and i'll never look at a paper bag the same from now on. hmmmm... what else could i make out of my big paper bag collection??
