Wreaths are a favorite project of dollar store crafters, and no wonder; they're cheap, relatively simple to make, and very gratifying! Check out this pretty ruffly wreath made from the humblest of material: the brown paper lunch sack! Taylor from MaryJanes and Galoshes made it for less than five bucks--isn't it pretty? She thinks it would be great for a wedding, and I agree, but I think a lot of us could find room in our regular decor for such a wreath. [how to make a ruffly paper sack wreath]

Project Estimate:

  • Wreath form, $1
  • 6-8 brown paper lunch sacks, $1
  • 2.5" Scallop circle punch, on hand (or buy with 40% off coupon)
  • Glue gun, on hand
  • Scrap paper for butterflies, on hand

Total: $2 and up
