With spring arriving, I wanted to create a fun wreath with the kids to celebrate the arrival of flowers. What was in my head and what was produced was a different story. But it still looks good – just not like the floral wreath I had envisioned!
The best thing about this wreath is that you will own most of the items. Cupcake cases, round stickers, glue and a paper plate are really all you need to create this easy craft. Depending on the colour scheme you choose for Christmas this year, these could make a welcome decoration addition to the house.
Developing fine motor skills
Just for fun
1. Cut the middle out of the paper plate to create the base of the wreath.
2. Choose which cupcake cases you will use and place a sticker in each.
3. Cut the cupcake cases to create petals.
4. Glue the cupcake case petals to a flattened cupcake case.
5. Punch a hole into the base of the wreath and thread ribbon so you can hang your creation.
6. Glue the cupcake cases onto the paper plate base to create your wreath.
7. Hang your wreath on the door or around the house.
