Rag Wreath from Plastic Bags

Up-cycled Plastic Shopping Bags
Are you like me?
Ready to get Spring Started
Ready for a Welcoming Spring DIY!

This is a Spring Wreath made from plastic shopping bags.
 I started my cutting myself a small ring from a piece of cardboard.

Then I pulled out all those plastic bags from their hiding spot. I especially wanted the lighter colored bags to offer up a Spring feeling. 

Then I just cute the handles off and also cut the bags in strips. I didn't try to be very careful at this point because I decided it would be best to trim everything down after the bags were tied onto my cardboard form.

After all the tying and trimming is done take your hand and just sort of rub and ruffle the edges.

I hope you find something you can DIY today.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit.
Be Blessed!
