The Pop Sugar website – a major source of PRW's celebrity news – has turned its hand to plastic recycling with spectacular results.
Under the headline ‘Beautiful upcycling: plastic bag holiday wreath' the website explains how to turn discarded plastic bags into a “seriously beautiful and unique holiday wreath”. The photographic evidence clearly supports this assertion.
According to Pop Sugar, this is how it works. Valerie Singleton would be proud to have made one of these earlier.
What you'll need
20 white plastic bags
12-inch metal wreath frame
Gather the plastic bags and layer several while smoothing flat. Cut the ends from the bags with sharp scissors. You may need more or less than 20 bags to complete your wreath.
Cut the bags into long strips, cutting from one side of the bag to the other.
Now cut away any writing or images from the strips, only leaving lengths of white plastic. Cut the strips into three-to-four-inch sections.
Double-knot lengths of the plastic bag around the wreath, bunching the knots together to create a full wreath. This step takes a bit of time, so get comfy on the couch with a pile of plastic bag strips next to you, which makes finishing the holiday wreath seem less time-consuming.
Continue knotting and bunching until the wreath is finished, and cut any strips of the plastic that are too long or out of place.
Adorn with acorns, small ornaments, or plastic snowflakes, then hang on your front door and await the carol-singers...
