Would you guys believe me if I told you these TWO beautiful wreaths cost me $3 to make!? All of these beautiful materials were purchased at our local dollar store and they came out so beautiful! My mom started a tradition with me when I was little making Christmas wreaths! We made one almost every year and it was something I looked forward to doing with her (still do) every year. This is something I will definitely be passing down to my girls! Thankfully you can make wreaths for any holiday, so I bring to you our mommy and me Fall wreaths! Thanks MOM <3
What you will need:
- Pack of fake Fall Leaves (Dollar store)
- 2 fall bows (Dollar store)
- Paper Plates (Dollar store)
- Elmer’s washable clear glue
- Hot glue gun
Paper Plate Fall Wreaths
Step 1: This is the step for mom or dad! Cut out the center of your plates. The easiest way is to gently fold your plate in half and make a cut. Unfold it and carefully cut out the middle. It does not have to be perfect! Next, use your hot glue gun to glue on the bow! The bow just needs a little bit stronger of a hold than the leaves.
Fine Motor Activity
Step 2: Now you are ready to glue on those leaves! This a great fine motor activity for those little hands! It also works on good hand eye coordination to place the leaves on the wreath. I applied the glue for her or she would have put it everywhere!
Aliza designed her own wreath and placed her leaves exactly where she wanted. She loved the bright colors and loved having the freedom to do whatever she liked. We talked colors and even practiced counting the leaves. She had a blast.
I asked her to take a picture with her wreath and this is what she did! It is obviously the appropriate way to show off your project 🙂
I made my own wreath during some down time. Crafting is so calming and therapeutic after busy days! I filled mine up and used a lot more leaves! These leaves worked perfectly and I loved the end result!
Our mommy and me fall wreaths turned out so beautifully. If you have a hole puncher, punch a hole on the top of your wreath and hang them with some ribbon or burlap string. I just used some nails and hung them on our wall!
