Up until this morning, our poppy wreath we’d made for Remembrance Day was still hanging on our apartment door. It was time for a change. Truthfully, I had no plans to create a new wreath today, so we kept things really easy and made a simple tissue paper Christmas Wreath.
Here’s what we used… A paper plate with the centre cut out, large squares of green tissue paper, small squares of red tissue paper, and some white glue.
To start us off, Miss G took one square of green tissue at a time, scrunched it up, and glued it down onto the paper plate ring, counting to 5 before letting go.
Before long, the entire thing was covered and it was time to start making our berries by scrunching up the small red tissue squares.
G prepped tons of berries, and then began gluing them onto the wreath using the hold for 5 seconds method once again.
Our final touch, which she requested, was a bow to go at the bottom of her wreath. I tied one using a piece of gold ribbon left over from Grae’s superhero costume, and she stuck it down firmly using a little more glue and pressure than normal.
And here’s the final product. Pretty for such a simple process, isn’t it?
