Tissue Paper & Pom Pom Wreaths

2.jpg

This is a great Christmas craft that can be done all in one sitting and is a great way to spend 20-30minutes with your Little Feet. Little Feet A and I did it together while Little Feet B was napping and it was a lovely calm quiet moment for us. Naps are getting far and few between now for Little Feet B so I have been missing that one on one time with Little Feet A. I used to look forward to weekend moments with her but alas Little Feet B now rarely naps at the weekend for not wanting to miss out on anything! So it was a nice surprise for the two of us when we had an hour to ourselves and it was the perfect opportunity to do this with her. I had been saving it for the right moment and it was the perfect time to whip it out. It is another inexpensive Christmas craft to do and the mess is limited. Ours now adorned the sitting room door and I have to say it looks rather smart! I normally try and keep their artwork to their play/craftroom/dining room however, I think we’ll be keeping it up where it is! Might be the cheapest wreath I’ll ever buy!

What you will need:

  • White card (Size up to you)

  • Pva glue (prit stick will not work to stick the pom poms down)

  • Green tissue paper

  • Pom poms (we used two different sizes)

  • Coloured paper (for the bow)

Instructions:

  1. Cut out a large circle on your white card and then a smaller circle inside it to make it look like a wreath. We actually found wreath shaped card paper so we used that and simply cut a bigger circle in the middle of it.

  2. Cover the card with pva glue and stick your tissue paper on it. We cut our tissue paper but tearing it works just as well. As you can see we used two different shades of green tissue, but one green is obviously fine.

  3. Once the until wreath is covered in tissue paper, now you can start sticking your pom poms on. They will need a fair dollop of pva glue in order to stay stuck when they are dry.

  4. Draw out a bow on the colour paper you have and cut it out. Stick on the top of your wreath.

  5. Lay your wreath flat until it is all dry and then hang!
