Here’s a simple paper wreath you can make out of paper and cardboard. Involve the the kids in cutting the leaves and pasting them on for making this pretty winter holiday decoration.
DIY Paper Wreath – Materials:
– construction paper
– sparkle paper (I used Paper Source wrapping paper)
– glue gun
Optional for the stars:
– sparkle paper
Step 1. Take your cardboard and with the help of 2 plates (big and small ones) draw 2 circles; now you can cut. You have your wreath base.
Step 2. For the leaves, take a piece of construction paper, fold it and draw like shown in the picture the leaf silhouette, then cut. Voila, you have one and 50 more to do!
Step 3. Time to glue, one leaf at the time. The glue gun is a great because it glues in a second! Now you can either can add a nice Christmas bow, or nothing. I added the stars.
Step 4. For the stars; I found this super easy stars tutorial and with some silver thread, I attached the stars to the wreath.
Now time to decorate your home!
