What you need

Plastic shopping bags white, green or red.
Wire coat hanger
Christmas decorations


Start by bending your coat hanger into a circle. Leave the hook at the top to hang it with.

Take your shopping bags and cut them into around 30 cm strips that are 2 inch wide.

Take your plastic strip and tie it into a knot around the wire circle.

Keep doing this until the circle can no longer fit any more plastic strips on it. This is a very simple craft but it looks great when completed so stick with it.

You will need lots of bags for this project around 20 depending on how tight and full you want your wreath.

When you are finished use some plastic holly or other decorations to decorate your Christmas wreath.

If you stick with plastic decorations then your Christmas wreath is weatherproof for outdoors!
