I made this wreath much smaller, this one is about 8" in diameter as opposed as 12". I did the same thing, cut 2" strips of white plastic bags, tie them around wire form. I use 12 gauge wire and then bent a loop at the top. I use green curling ribbon for the bow and draped the rest of the ribbon. I hot glued miniature ornaments around the wreath. I think I like this wreath as much as the other one.
