An easy Wreath to make with the kids

3 Dec

 

Despite the title of this post, my kids did not help make this in any way I was told when I asked if they wanted to help “No, Mum. You can do it all by yourself”

I recently found this cute wreath via Pinterest.

 

This is the site it is from. It is in Hungarian, Google will translate it for you, but the photos are pretty self explanatory so you don’t really need it.

All you need is used toilet rolls, green paint, red beads and glue

image

I used 11 toilet rolls. I started by cutting each one into 5 pieces and painting inside and outside green.

image

Then using a glue gun I glued the 5 pieces together to form this flower shape.

image

Once I had made all the flowers I glued them together to make 1 small wreath, using 5 flowers and one larger wreath, using six flowers.

image

I placed the smaller one on top of the bigger one then glued some red beads on, and there you have it. A simple Christmas wreath!

    This looks brilliant! I would never have guessed that you used toilet rolls. We have tons in our house, so I’m going to try this tonight 😀
