Fun holiday wreaths kids can make

I started blogging in 2007 at, and more recently, at I mostly love to sew but also love to use a lot of hot glue.

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!

Felt-and-wire wreath

Deck the halls with these easy wreaths!

Supplies needed:

  • 2 yards 60-inch-wide craft felt, in varying shades of green
  • 1 (12 inch) green wreath form (found in the floral department)
  • Burlap ribbon (optional)
  • Pipe cleaner (optional)


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.

Foam-and-fabric wreath

Deck the halls with these easy wreaths!

Supplies needed:

  • 1 (14 inch) foam craft wreath
  • 47 5 x 5-inch squares of green patterned fabric (or paper)
  • Fabric glue (or regular glue if using paper)


  1. Fold one of the pieces of fabric in half, matching points to make a triangle.
  2. Wrap the triangle around the wreath, overlapping points and gluing it in place on the back of the wreath.
  3. Continue to layer the fabric in the same manner until the wreath is completely covered.

Button wreath

Deck the halls with these easy wreaths!

Supplies needed:

  • Approximately 65 small, green buttons
  • 1 gold pipe cleaner
  • Ribbon


  1. To create the wreath, simply thread one end of the pipe cleaner through a hole in each of the buttons.
  2. So the buttons don't fall off, make a fold in the end opposite the end you are threading through the buttons. Once all of the buttons are on the pipe cleaner, shape it into a wreath and twist the ends together, leaving enough length of pipe cleaner beyond the twist for Step 3.
  3. Create a loop at the top, twisting the excess ends together.
  4. Decorate the wreath with a bow tied around the loop.
