We love making all kinds of Christmas crafts and we feel this particular item would make a great Christmas project for the classroom. However, when it comes to making Christmas wreaths for the classroom, we feel this tutorial should (can) be used as a way to decorate wreaths, but you don’t need to limit your students to Just do it this way.

Ask them to design their own wreath. Let them use materials of their choice. Remember, this guide is just an idea and will hopefully spark many more. There’s really no limit to the materials your child can use when decorating these.

If you make this as a family project, you can also manually adjust it to suit different ages – if you need an easier version for younger children (preschool or toddlers). walk), ask them to draw on the sheets – they can even use their hands instead of a paintbrush – you know they’ll love it.

Older kids can make even smaller paper rings and use them more, which will give this Christmas craft an even more interesting look.

Step-by-step instructions

Punch a hole in the middle of the paper plate, start cutting from there to cut the bottom of the paper plate (circle).

Cut green paper strips.

We did it by cutting to the width of an a4/letter sized sheet of paper. We then cut those strips of paper in half.

Apply glue to the end of the paper strip.

Glue the ends together into a roll.

Do quite a lot.

Apply glue (or better yet, use glue dots) on the edge of the paper plate or on paper rolls and then stick the paper rolls on the edge of the paper plate.

Next, let’s make a bow. Fold a piece of red paper in half and cut a bow in half.

Also make two ribbons.

Glue the ribbons to the back of the bow.

Cut a strip of red paper, apply glue to one end and make a red paper ring.

Glue it to the bow.

Apply glue to the back of the bow and press it onto the Christmas wreath on the paper plate.

Now it’s time to decorate. We decorated ours with pom poms.

Apply glue to the pom pom (or use a glue dot) and stick it onto the paper rings.

All has been done! Your handmade paper Christmas wreath is complete and ready to hang.
