Christmas Craft: Recycled Wreath

Monday, December 15, 2008
Looking for a cool and simple (not to mention not too messy) craft this holiday season? I've got the perfect solution for your creative dilemma.The recycled wreath is a festive way to recycle your holiday wrapping paper debris.

Here's what you'll need:
  1. Leftover pieces of gift wrap, tissue paper and ribbon
  2. A paper plate
  3. Glue or a glue stick

Here's how to create it:

  1. Cut a circle out of the middle of the paper plate (I trace around a CD or DVD).
  2. For younger kids, cover the paper plate with glue. Older kids can use a glue stick.
  3. Trim the paper plate with gift wrap, tissue paper and ribbon to create a colorful wreath.

To hang the wreath, use a hole punch to make a hole in the wreath. Loop ribbon through the hole and tie it. Hang the wreath where all your holiday guests are sure to admire it!

Note: This craft is perfect for Dad or a babysitter to do with the kiddies while you're out doing your holiday shopping!

It's obvious from the picture below just how much fun Emma and Harper had making their wreaths!
