I went through the boxes. I went through the bins. My little girls waited patiently, both with big grins. A Christmas tradition, we always do. What we were going to make, I had no clue.
I stuck my hand in a shoe box and pulled it back out. I held up a pretty wreath and wanted to shout. Inspiration at last, this was going to work. I looked at my girls and they started to smirk.
Handmade Christmas Wreath Cards for Kids
So we got our supplies, some paper and glue; scissors, some tape and a pencil too.
I gave them a card and showed them the way. They sat there, busy, almost all day.
First trace a circle, or draw one, that’s fine. If it’s more of an oval, don’t worry, don’t whine.
Then cut some paper, make sure that it’s cute. 1 inch cubes are what you need, again, not absolute.
Out of those cubes a triangle you’ll cut. You want it to look like a ribbon, somewhat.
Now paste those ribbon around and around, on the edge of the circle until it can’t be found.
The last step is easy, just make a bow. Draw it on paper or find it on your big toe. You could also use buttons or anything neat. Make it your own, I’m sure it’ll be sweet.
We used some stamps to add holiday cheer; greetings of love for those we hold dear.
Our project was finished, it was so much fun. We hope you join in, let us know if you make one!
