  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Glue
  • Colored pens, crayons, colored pencils, or paint
  • Optionally: foam board, wood, hard board, pre-made wreath bases

Project Instructions

    1. First, you need a base for your wreath. There are several choices.
      • A pattern is provided. Print the half-circle pattern at right, twice. (To print an adequate size wreath pattern on computer paper, it must be made from two pieces. You may wish to print these pattern pieces on colored paper or card stock.) Cut out the two pattern pieces then glue the two pieces together. Glue one piece to the other piece with the edge of one just covering the dashed line of the other. (If you turn one piece upside down, then the dashed line will be hidden.) Color your wreath, as you choose, although they are usually green. A colored wreath is also provided for those with a color printer.
      • Instead of using the circle as the wreath, you can use it as a pattern to make a wreath from some thick material such as foam board. If you do, paint it green, or in a color of your own choosing.
      • You can make your wreath on foam board (or other material) in any size you want. Just draw two circles on the material and cut out your wreath base.
      • Craft stores carry various types and sizes of wreath bases. You may want to purchase a base instead of making your own.
    2. The next step is making objects to decorate your wreath. The project image above is a suggestion of how your finished wreath might look. Several images are provided. Print the ones you want to use. Color them as you choose, then cut them out, and glue to your wreath.

You do not need to make your wreath exactly as shown. You can print extra copies of some of the objects and then use them to make, for example, a wreath with only holly berries, or a wreath with only Christmas tree ornaments, or one with several angels or santas.

Make one or more wreaths to decorate your own home. You may also want to make wreaths to give to relatives or friends.
