I love hydrangeas and would love to have a yard full of those gorgeous flowers! Instead, I’ll have to settle for faux hydrangeas in vases or hydrangea wreaths because our yard lacks one thing. SHADE. Any kind of shade. This wreath was a happy accident. I made it after seeing this one and decided to give it a coat of spray paint. Voila—a faux hydrangea wreath was born and I couldn’t love it more! Looking at it, you’d never guess it was made from brown paper lunch sacks! And my cost was $1 for the foam ring at the Dollar Tree store. Even better!

How to Make a Paper Bag Wreath
Step 1: Cut out dozens and dozens of scalloped circles using your paper punch. You can also cut them out using a cricut or silhouette machine, but a paper punch works great. They are going to start to fall all over the place, so go ahead and get out a bowl to keep them in while you punch. Turn on your favorite show on Netflix and get punchin’!
Step 2: Pick up the pencil and wrap one circle around the end. (Do you remember making tissue paper pictures in kindergarten? You know, the ones where you wrap tissue paper around a pencil, dip it in Elmer’s glue then push it onto a paper? This is the same technique. Only use hot glue instead of Elmer’s glue and push them onto a wreath base.) Wrap and gluing until the wreath is nice and full.
Step 3: Give the wreath a light coat of cream colored spray paint. Repeat if desired.
