Indoors and outdoors, wreaths add such interest to your home’s decor! I’ve enjoyed making wreaths from book pages, coffee filters, grapevine wreath, silk Tulip flowers, dried roses and coffee filter roses and monogram wreath even one from Pistachio shells…So, for fall, I wanted to make an interesting wreath as well as reuse something most of us have around the house…I made this paper bag wreath for fall decor!
Paper Bag Crafts are not just for Kids
Most of the paper bag crafts you’ll see are geared toward kids. That’s not a bad thing! Getting kids interested in crafts and recycling is a wonderful thing! Paper bags can make a very lovely, very grown up decorative craft.
Beautiful Fall Decor with Paper Bags
This is a very easy craft, but it does take some time. At least, it did take me some time – I can be a turtle when it comes to some things!
How to Make a Paper Bag Fall Wreath
- White Styrofoam Wreath Form
- Spray Paint – light brown or beige color
- Paper Bags
- Rotary Cutter – Mat; or Paper Cutter
- Hot Glue – Hot Glue Gun
- Silk Flowers
- U-Shaped Floral Pins
Using hot glue, run a bead of glue around the wreath form. Attach the strip holding a few seconds as the glue cools and dries. Continue this step adding twisted strips closely together. Again, this will take a lot of twisted strips – and some time. Maybe a movie in the background?
Decorate as You Wish
I made two wreaths – one for the front and one for the back door. I used the same silk flowers (seasonally colored Peonies and small leaf sprays) I simply used different ribbons. LOVE Wreaths! I attached the silk flowers with large U-Shaped floral pins and hot glue.
