Step 1: Things You Will Need

Picture of Things You Will Need
-A wire coat hanger
-Garbage Bags (It doesn't matter what colours you use, but I used pink and green)
-Scissors

Optional Decorations:
-Christmas Ribbon
-Fake Christmas Plant

Step 2:

Grab the coat hanger and start reshaping it into a circle. It doesn't have to be perfect!!!

After you have reshaped the coat hanger get the garbage bags and start cutting strips.
The length of the strips don't matter but you need to make them long enough to be able to tie a knot.

Step 3:

Now you can begin to make your wreath!!!

Grab a strip and tie a tight knot around the coat hanger.
Make sure you alternate the colours as you go along.
Repeat this until the whole coat hanger is full!!!

Step 4:

Now that that the whole wreath is full you should start making it look neat by cutting all the bits that stick out off.
Make sure you don't cut too much off or else it won't look like a circle!!!

Step 5: Optional Decorations

Get the ribbon and tie it into a bow or any other shape that you like and put two pins through the middle and attach it to the wreath.
If you don't think that's enough decorations you can add a fake Christmas plant and just twist the wire around the wreath to secure it.

If the decorations don't stay you can just use a hot glue gun.

Step 6: Finished!!!

Cool! I should say, though, the first picture looks weird, 'cause it's Photoshopped (I'm guessing; you might have used another program) and it makes the wreath look fake. I would suggest changing that photo. Otherwise it's perfect!

Thanks for letting me know :) I'll keep it in mind! Just letting you know I actually didn't use photoshop, I don't know how to use it. I just used my iPhone to take these photos, it may just be the lighting. But anyways thanks again for letting me know :D
Oh ok. Well, you're welcome. ;)
