Introduction: Green Christmas Wreath

In this holiday season we have a old neglected proposal that we need to prioritize its help the earth

to accomplish this lets start to make our christmas greener doing a wreath of recyclable

lets start with that old wire frame of the last Christmas wreath
and some grocery store plastic bags that otherwise will pollute our planet for thousands years

just star wrapping the bags folded in half in each of the loops of the wire frame

two or three are enough for each one

wrap all around the wire frame

to finish lets make a bow here we use the classical color red and green but you can use your imagination and resources at hand to chose the colors you prefer but pleas don buy a bag for this

remember help the planet

voila

just hang it on your front door and spread the message

I believe this is called hanging trash bags on your door. This isn't green, you should not even have those bags in the first place if you were green. You know what is green? a branch from a pine tree. It wont harm a tree to cut one off and it looks nice. Or buy one, wreathes are made out of sustainable pine trees - natural/ good looking. yours is made out of plastic bags - made from refined oil/ not good looking. Darn I'm commenting on a 2 year old post.

Good idea, I like it. Plus, you won't have to get a new one every year =]
