An Easy Autumn Wreath

An Easy Autumn Wreath

By Brenda Hyde

This easy fall wreath can made with your kids. Make an extra one to take in to their teacher!
You will need:

cardboard and/or foam board in fall colors

glue

an Exacto knife or craft knife or scissors

ruler

ribbon, yarn, raffia, or scrap material

Have the kids collect several sizes of leaves from the yard. Bring them in and trace the leaves onto the foam board or cardboard. Use an Exacto knife or scissors to cut out the shapes. Set them aside.

Draw a 12 inch circle on cardboard and inside this circle about 2 or 3 inches in, draw another circle. Cut out the middle to make a wreath base. Glue on your leaf cut-outs around the base, overlapping as you go to cover the cardboard completely.

To finish glue on a fall themed ribbon or fabric bow to complete your wreath and make a loop to glue to the back for a hanger. There are some optional ways you can make the leaves too:

-Buy precut foam leaves or silk leaves from a craft store.

-Use the real leaves and glue them on as you would have the fake ones!

-Trace the leaves on colored tissue paper and cut out.

-Use construction paper, or other colored paper
