This project is super easy and is perfect for any kid that knows how to tie knots!
a wreath (foam or wicker) found a wicker one at the $1 store!
assorted ribbons in green (or cut strips of fabric
flowers to decorate
Step 1: Test for your ribbon length
Step 2: Pre-cut your ribbons or fabric
Cut all of your fabric/ ribbon strips. I just cut 3 or 4 lengths of every color/ size green I had and figured I'd cut more if I needed to. Keep in mind that the wider the ribbon, the shorter the ends will be. I cut mine all within a half inch difference regardless so that I'd have all different sizes.
Step 3: Let the kids take over!
Have your kiddo sit on a small chair, feet on the floor. Place the wreath between their knees and let them tie the ribbons onto the wreath randomly. They may struggle with some of the wider ribbons, so stay close by to lend a hand.
Step 4: Glue where necessary
Once the wreath is nice and full, you may see a few spots that look naked because the ribbons are haywire from being tied. Just fire up the dlue gun, pull the two pieces of the problem ribbon together, drop a bit of glue in, and pinch together!
Step 5: Add Embellishments
This is a great place to get creative! You can use flowers, moss, a small St. Patrick's Day banner, a little bird's nest complete with a few birdies (find at any craft store), even a family photo can be popped into the center !
Step 6: Hang it!
Now you can enjoy your child's wreath for years to come!
