You Made That Out Of WHAT?

I am linking up with The Nester  to share this sweet wreath tutorial.
She has challenged us to make a wreath out of material we wouldn't normally think to use. I decided to use...

 Grocery bags!

First, grab a bunch of those plastic grocery bags you have piled up in your pantry. We all have em! 

Then, fold one up and run it through a die cutter. Then another one...and another one...

{{If you don't have a die cutter, it will only take a bit of extra effort to cut them out yourself. But still SO easy!}}

I used white and brown plastic bags for a neutral look, but white and yellow would be sweet, kinda like daisies. :) 

Next, you will need a Styrofoam wreath, some neutral material, scissors, and sewing pins. 

Tear a few strips of your fabric and wrap it around your wreath and secure with a pin.

Then start stacking your flowers. I alternated colors and sizes and then secured them to the foam wreath with another pin...

I alternated the colors...

And filled the sides with just the smaller flowers to make it a bit fluffier...

And there you have it! 
It took minutes to make and I had most of the stuff on-hand! :) 

Isn't it sweet?? I love how flouncy the flowers are.  I am excited about incorporating it into my Fall mantle. Stay tuned, and let me know if you make one for yourself!

This is such a great idea! And so unique! I made mine out of TP rolls. :) I may have to copy this for another though because boy do I have a lot of bags!
