Make a 15 Minute Thankful Wreath with the Kids

 

The kids and I made an easy {last minute} Thankful Wreath for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.  It only took us 15 minutes and I love the way it turned out.

Materials needed:

Fabric ~ I used a fat-quarter

Styrofoam wreath

Thumbtacks

Construction Paper

Marker/Sharpie/Crayons/Pens {whatever you wish}

 

1.  I started by ironing my fat quarter, folding it in half and then cutting the entire width into 2 1/2 inch strips.

2.  Next, wrap the styrofoam wreath with the fabric securing as necessary.  You may need to adjust your wrap so that all of the thumbtacks are on the same side {none showing on the front side of the wreath}.

3.  Continue wrapping the wreath until it is entirely covered and no more white shows.

4.  Use any leftover strips to make a ribbon and a hanger for your wreath.

5.  Now for the fun part ~ if the kids are old enough to use scissors have them cut random leaf shapes from the construction paper.

6.  Once all of the leaves were cut out the kids folded them slightly in half lengthwise just to give them a little depth and then wrote what they were thankful for on the leaves.  We then placed the leaves on the wreath.  ~ all done!
