Baby Shower – Announcement Wreath

Baby Shower – Announcement Wreath

These baby shower wreaths are a wonderful craft project and are great for baby's bedroom door or for the party entrance door. You can even pop them on the door for baby announcements for the whole neighborhood to see!

What you need

White Plastic Bags
Wire ring (or coat hanger)
Stickers or Toys
Baby socks


How to begin

Start by bending your coat hanger into a circle, leaving the hook at the top to hang it with or use a ready made ring.

Now take your shopping bags or white garbage bags and cut into strips around 20-30 cms in length. The length will determine how fluffy your wreath is. The quantity you tie on will determine how thick your wreath will be.

Now take your plastic strip and tie it into a knot around the wire circle. Keep doing this until the circle can no longer fit any more plastic strips on.



This is a very simple craft but it looks great when completed so stick with it. You will need lots of bags for this around 20. Depending on how tight you want your wreath, it took 2 white garbage bags for us to complete our wreath.

Once your have your wreath created embellish it with baby items.

Then use double sided tape or craft glue to attach the toys to the wreath. You could embellish it with baby rattles and other little trinkets.

I made mine in a unisex theme with both pink, yellow and blue items but if you know the sex of your baby then you could use blue or pink plastic kitchen tags which are now available in most supermarkets.

You could even use this same principal using fabric strips using a non fraying fabric for a better finish.

    I was looking for a really cheap way to make a wreath. So far I have only spent $1 & that was for buying some wash cloths to add as embellishments. My 12 y.o. daughter tied the white bags on the white hanger. It was awsemoe not only spending quality time w/her, but it has so far turned out really pretty. I’m proud of what we have done so far. We are not completely finished w/it, but I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for posting this easy & inexpensive way to make a wreath for baby. You deserve a pat on the back & a comp. STARBUCKS coffee, lol!

  4. I love this idea, could also be used at any other holiday if you change the color of the ribbons and the decorations you put on it. =) WONDERFUL!
