Wreaths make decorating for any season easy. I love fall colours and thought a Thanksgiving wreath would be a great way to add a splash of those colours to our house and be a fun project for the kids.
We used a variety of supplies and I let the kids just be creative. I didn’t give any instructions as I find that their best projects tend to be when I give them the freedom to use their imaginations.
We used some pre-cut foam leaves, including some glitter foam leaves and cut other leaf shaped out of foam sheets using cookie cutters as templates. We also use sequins, plastic jewel stickers in fall colours, mini pompoms, small foam sticker letters, and autumn silk leaves that I got in a pack from the dollar store. I set out a paper plate with white glue and popsicle sticks to make gluing easy and let the kids get in there!
Using the popsicle sticks, they glued the foam shapes and silk leaves into a circle or oval. They then added the decorative elements to their wreaths. Once they were dry, they were ready to hang.
This was such a simple craft but added a beautiful bit of colour for the season. Since we didn’t need five wreaths in our house, we gave some to the grandparents.
You could add other elements to the wreath such as glitter glue, sparkles, feathers, or paper scraps.
