Fall Paper Sack Wreath Tutorial

Here's a quick fall wreath I made out of lunch sacks.

I picked up this wreath form at the dollar store, and I used 16 lunch sized paper sacks.

I twisted it and then smashed it down from the top.

Then I wrapped the bottom of the sack around the wreath form and taped the meeting ends together with packaging tape.

Continue until the entire wreath is covered.

It needed some more color, so I used an orange ink pad I had laying around and rubbed it all over each sack "flower."

Then I cut out some ovals out of fabric, and scrunched them up into a flower shape and hot glued them on.

It needed al little color, so I carefully opened up some treats, but I kept accidently ripping the wrapper, so  I had to keep eating them until I got it right.

(Here I am lookin' crafty!)

I hot glued on a few leftover "flags" from my laundry room.  I kinda want to put a big yellow ribbon on around the candy part, but haven't made it to Micheals, and it might just be good enough for now.
(and I someday I will spray that green hook black.)

Welcome Fall!
