Making a paper bag wreath

Let's get started.

1. Start with a foam wreath (from the dollar store perhaps)
2. Cut out many scalloped circles with a punch...mine was a 2 inch punch and I cut 8 circles out of each folded bag...that gave me 24 circles. I probably used about 20 bags.
3. Fold your circle up around the end of a pencil and add a dab of hot glue
4. Press the flower to your foam wreath.

I packed my circles in close together but yours could be looser.

Have a little fun...NICE BEARD.


A Finished wreath...took some time but oh, so worth it.

I used a free download from for some of my butterflies and a Martha Steward Butterfly punch for the smaller ones.
