Halloween Trash Bag Wreath
If you like hanging wreaths on your front door for each holiday or season, here’s an idea that’s sure to save you money. This black 12” circle Halloween wreath was made with just a bit more than one 33 gallon plastic trash bag from Costco. The core of the wreath is inexpensive hose from Lowe’s that’s sturdy enough to keep the wreath shape, yet it can be cut to the length you need with a craft knife or box cutter. If you’ve made wreaths before and used expensive Styrofoam, wire or other pre-made wreaths you will appreciate the fact that this one cost less than $3. I added ribbon and card stock decorations to complete my wreath. After Halloween, the hose can be stripped of it’s black plastic and used for another holiday...if you can stand to part with it!
My ghost and orange “BOO” letters were created in Photoshop. A black lace design was layered over the letters then printed and cut out with a craft knife. The letters and ghost are attached with jewelry wire.
