The children had so much fun making this painted Christmas wreath. I like the mix of the traditional decoration with the vibrant colours the kids chose. Here’s how they made it.
How to make a Christmas wreath
We started by printing lots and lots of circles on to pieces of card. We used our set of stacking cups to print with, which were really easy for the children to hold and gave us a variety of sizes.
We used washable paint so we could clean up the cups afterwards.
Once we’d finished the stamping fun and everything had dried we used the same cups to draw lots of circles on the painted card and cut them out.
We used a paper plate as the frame for the wreath, with the centre removed.
You know my kids have an issue with waiting for glue to dry, so we stapled all the circles in place around the paper plate ring.
We added some shiny ribbon for extra pizzazz and ta-da, our painted Christmas wreath is ready.
