How to Make a Paper Bag Christmas Wreath Craft

Step 1Cut the center out of the paper plate leaving the rim for the wreath.
Step 2Cut several 2 inch wide strips down the paper bag to the bottom. Don’t cut off the bottom as you will use this part to glue to the paper plate.
Step 3Take each strip and wrap a pencil around it to curl the strip. For a tighter curl, hold it wrapped around the pencil for awhile then slide the pencil out of the curl.
Step 4Glue this to the paper plate using the bottom of the bag to glue in place.
Step 5Repeat steps 2 – 4 until the paper plate rim is full.
Step 6Cut large squares of colored tissue paper and crunch into a ball shape. Glue these on the Xmas wreath in different areas.

To finish this Christmas kids craft just use ribbon or yarn and glue on the back creating a loop for hanging. These look really neat once it is all done and will be a fun looking Xmas decoration for your door.
