Storytime & Craft: Paper Plate Wreath

We’re setting the stage for the holidays with this fun paper plate wreath!

Materials:

  • Paper plate
  • Green paper
  • Red paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Pom Poms (optional)
  • Bow template (optional)

Instructions:

Step 1: (Adults, this part is for you!) Punch a hole in the middle of the paper plate and then cut the middle out of the paper plate so you’re left with a circle.

Step 2: Cut 5 or 6 long strips out of the green paper (they’ll be about an inch and a half wide) and then cut those paper strips in half.

Step 3: Put some glue on the end of the paper strip and glue the ends together making a paper roll. This should make 10-12 rolls.

Step 4: Glue the rolls all around the edge of the paper plate.

Step 5: Make a bow! Use our template as a guide and colour the paper red, or make your own with red paper.

Cut out a ribbon (a long rectangle with a triangle cut out of either end) out of your red paper. Then fold the rest of the piece of red paper in half (on the dotted line) and cut out a “half bow” – like a heart without the point. When you unfold this, it will make a bow!

Fold the ribbon in half on an angle so that the two ends are pointing away from each other, and glue it to the back of your bow. You have a ribbon!

Step 6: Decorate with pompoms!
