Ava made a Christmas wreath at school and I'm totally copying it. It only requires: green construction paper, tissue paper, a glue stick, scissors, a hole puncher, red ribbon and a glue gun. I knew that Sidney would love this project which is why I copied it - if it involves a glue stick she's set for hours! She made several wreaths!
All you do is cut a circle from a piece of green construction paper, then cut out a smaller circle inside to make a wreath. Use your hole puncher to punch out circles around 80% of the wreath, leaving room for a ribbon. Then cut out small squares of tissue paper. The kids used a glue stick to glue the tissue paper to the back of the wreath. I used the hot glue gun to stick the bow on the bottom of the wreath and that's all there is to it!
If you don't have a red ribbon, you could also cut one out of construction paper.
You can't tell from this picture below, but I put the wreaths on our Christmas tree to show the girls how pretty it looks with the Christmas tree lights shining behind the tissue paper. And it makes a cute ornament! Or, if you have as many wreaths as we do, you can attach them to a thick ribbon an use them as garland for decoration!
