You can make a simple Christmas craft with your child from improvised materials. An example would be the Christmas paper plate wreath presented in this tutorial.
To create such a wreath, we will prepare:
- disposable paper plate;
- colored paper;
- glue with scissors;
- small pompoms.
Christmas Paper Plate Wreath Step by Step
The basis for our wreath will be a disposable paper plate. She needs to cut out the middle so that she gets a ring.
Then we will prepare the strips for work. We cut them out of paper of dark green and light green color. To do this, put 2 sheets together, and then cut along the short side into strips about 3 cm wide.
Now you can use the glue stick. We take one of the green strips, insert it into the ring and carefully fold it in half. The ends of the strip must be glued.
Next, take a lighter strip and repeat all the steps. At the same time, we try to make sure that there is no free space between the strips.
In this way, we must arrange the entire paper ring.
Let’s use scissors again. If necessary, first shorten the edges of the strips a little, and then make triangular cutouts on them.
From two strips of red paper glued together, we will make a bow, which we will fix on a wreath.
It remains to decorate our craft a little. To do this, we will add small pompoms, securing them with glue. A Christmas paper plate wreath is ready.
Also on Christmas, you can make a Paper Plate Christmas Tree Craft.
