Crystal Wreath | Homemade Christmas Wreaths

Crystal Wreath

Put your elves to work on a wreath with a magical snow-and-ice look. Made of plastic bags tied onto a hanger, it's a perfect outdoor decoration.


  • White wire clothes hanger
  • Wire cutters
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • About 100 plastic sandwich bags (the fold-over, not ziplock, kind)
  • Bow


Form the hanger into a circle, keeping the hook at the top.

Using wire cutters, cut the hanger at the bottom center and wrap the ends around each other to form a circle with a 9-inch diameter. Use needle-nose pliers if necessary. Bend the hook down to form a loop for hanging the wreath.

Fold a plastic bag in half lengthwise and tie it around the hanger with a single overhand knot. Repeat, pushing the bags together until the circle is full. Add a bow.
