Paper Plate Christmas Wreaths


Here's a very simple craft that your littlies can make for the Christmas Season.

Paper Plate Christmas Wreath

You will need...

  • Paper plates
  • Paint - Cel mix is great because it is paint and glue in one. I like to do green paint but you could also do another colour such as gold or silver. If you don't have Cel mix, mix a little PVA glue into some acrylic paint.
  • Holly berries - red cardboard circles
  • Holly leaves - green leaf shapes cut out of cardboard
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
Cut the centre out of a paper plate.
Use the outside piece as the wreath.
Have the kids decorate it with paint/ glue, the berries and the leaves.
Once dried, punch a hole in the top, tie some ribbon through and hang your wreath on the door.

I hope your little people will be as proud as mine was when they see their Christmas creation hanging on the door. As we drove out the other day Miss M said, "Thank you Mummy". I asked her what for and she replied, "For hanging my Christmas thing on the door!"

Jingle all the way... celebrate Jesus' Birthday!

LOL Amanda - only saw your post on a paper plate wreath after mine was almost ready to goup! Hope you don't mind... I've linked to you from mine already. Great minds, huh?

Yes great minds think alike!!! I've had that happen a few times with other blogs. Go for it Cath, these wreaths are a great idea. One too good to keep to ourselves.

Wreath making is always on my day care activity list! We make handprints and then cut and paste :)

I like your wreath Amanda.

Thanks Nerelle. They have been on my list since my old day care days too. An oldie but a goodie!
