How to Make a Spring Wreath from a Small Lunch Bag

Wait. What? It’s true. You can make a spring wreath for your home from a small lunch bag. And you can make it any color.

This spring wreath was made from small pink lunch bags. I twisted them to look like roses and then painted the edges of the “roses” to create some depth. Then I glued them to a grapevine wreath. That’s it!

The inspiration for this wreath is the white paper bag wreath I made last year. You can read the DIY on my blog post titled The Forty Five Minute White Wreath.

Obviously, you can make the same style of wreath as the white one, using pink flowers (aka bags).

Before and After

Small Lunch Bag to Painted Rose

All it takes is a paper bag to make these roses and the wreath! Painting the roses was so easy and it still amazes me how much these came out. (I purchased the smallest bags which are the 3.5″ size. They come in 11 colors and are linked below.)

At first, I assumed I would hang this wreath inside our house. But the weather has been so incredible that I decided to hang it under our covered back porch. I love how it looks hanging on this cabinet. I think it is fun to find an unconventional place to hang wreaths.

Materials Needed (see below for links to all materials)

Grapevine wreath

Small lunch bags (I used the 3.5″ size)

White acrylic paint and medium-sized flat paintbrush

Glue gun and glue sticks

The first thing you need to do is make the flowers. Watch the video below and you will see how easy the roses are to make. The secret is that the roses don’t need to look the same. If you look closely you can see mine are all different!

The next step is to paint the edges of the roses. I used a large brush and white acrylic paint. The secret is to use thick paint (so don’t dilute it) and flatten the paint on a surface before you add it to the brush. Then paint the edges of the roses and let them dry.

Painted the Roses

Here are my roses as they were drying.

Once the roses are dry, apply hot glue to the underneath side of the roses. Cover the area thoroughly and press on to your wreath form. Hold for a few seconds while they adhere to the wreath.

Here is the finished wreath! I hung it with a vintage pink ribbon.
