BURNT LUNCH SACK WREATHI LOVE how this wreath looks, but I also LOVE how much it cost me to make. Less than $2.00! All you need is a wreath I got mine from the dollar store and some lunch sacks (brown or white would be cool too). Plus hot glue and something it hang it by like ribbon.
First I put a loop around the wreath so I would have something to hang it by.
Then I took a few lunch sacks folded them in half and cut out semicircles. Like so
it really doesn’t matter how good they look (obviously)
then I just formed them into little cones and hot glued them to the wreath. I liked using this type of wreath because it was easy to put them into the little spaces.
Just keep doing it over and over and over, until you
really can’t stand it anymore are finished.
When I got to the top I placed the ribbon through the loop so I would have something to hang it by.
After I was done I like how it look but I felt like it needed something. I was thinking maybe I should have dipped the ends in paint or something. Then I realized I could get the same effect just by burning the ends of the paper. At this point the wreath is completely finished, so I was kinda concerned about lighting the whole thing on fire, but in the end I think it was better to do it all at once. That way you’re not holding a tiny little paper and trying not to burn your fingers. Though I would recommend not doing it in your house while the wreath is hanging on your pantry door. NOT that I would ever do anything like that. I just lit little sections on fire at a time and quickly blew them out. It was pretty exciting.
I really liked how it looked but I still wanted a little something more for the overall look of the room, then I remembered I had gotten these black metal letters on clearance at Michaels for 30 cents and I’m VERY happy with the end result.
