Here’s the how-to:
- Gather several brown paper grocery bags. I probably used 4-5 bags to make this wreath. Cut the bags down to workable flat pieces of paper avoiding any imprinted areas.
- Use craft paint or water color paints and water - I used green and brown. Using a lot of water wet your paper and dab on the paint so that it’s not uniform.
- Once your sheets are dry cut out your leaves. You can fold the paper and cut several at once.
Add a hanger to your wreath form and start gluing on your leaves. For this project I used a glue gun. To achieve a more natural look slightly curl each leaf with your fingers as you add them.
I love the look of water color and the effect is even more muted and water colory on these brown bags.
From throw-away grocery store bags to a pretty wreath.
