Deck The Halls With These Easy Wreaths!
Grab some simple crafting supplies and your favorite preschooler and get to work making these fun and super-easy holiday wreaths — just in time to deck the halls for the holidays. Little hands may need a bit of assistance with some of the steps, but crafting together with your little one is more fun anyway!
1. Cut your strips
*TRY THIS* Instead of green felt, use either recycled grocery sacks (cut to 9-inch lengths) or clear plastic sandwich baggies. This will change the look and texture of the wreath.
Before you assemble your wreath, you need to cut the felt. Each strip should measure 9 x 2 inches. You should be able to get 120 strips per yard. Using a rotary cutter (adults only, and with care) will make simple work of this task.
2. Create the wreath
Simply tie the felt pieces to the frame. Each section has four rows, and each row should fit eight knotted pieces. There is a lot of tying in this project, so little hands might need a few sessions to complete it.
3. Add the finishing touches
If desired, add the burlap ribbon in a bow, using a pipe cleaner to attach.
