Make your own kids handprint Christmas wreath

 

What you’ll need for your handprint Christmas wreath

 
  • 5 pieces of A4 green card
  • Pencil or pen
  • Scissors
  • PVA glue
  • Paint brush for gluing
  • Wreath decorations – ribbon, sequins, stickers, glitter etc
  • Red ribbon (optional)


To make your handprint Christmas wreath


1. Using the pen or pencil, draw around your child’s hand onto the card. Repeat this several times until you have around 10 handprints.

2. Cut out each of the handprints using the scissors.

3. Use the PVA glue to glue the handprints together in a circle to make your Christmas wreath (see image). Overlap the handprints slightly as you go.

4. Using the craft materials (ribbons, sequins, stickers etc), it’s time for your child to get creative and decorate the wreath.

5. Once their Christmas wreath design is complete, either make a bow with the red ribbon and glue it on to the bottom of the wreath using the PVA glue or draw on a red ribbon if it’s easier.

6. You're now ready to hang the Christmas wreath on your front door or one of the doors/walls in your house. The wreath also makes a great personal gift for grandparents and other members of your family.
 
Tips for your kids Christmas wreath
 
  • If you don’t have green card you can always paint white card with green paint and wait for it to dry before using.
 
  • When using PVA glue, it’s always a good idea to protect your table top from glue spills with newspaper or a fitted tablecloth. It’ll make cleaning up a lot easier too!
