Christmas Tree and Wreath

Happy Holidays

Are you feeling like your house is a little low on the holiday decoration side? Well here are two cute kid crafts that you can instantly hang up to add to your home holiday decor.

(They really turned out this cute,
and they were made by two toddler boys,
who knew boys could be so crafty???)

Christmas Tree

1-Find some green scrapbook paper
2-Cut out a pattern of a Christmas Tree
3- Cut out a yellow star for the top
4- Cut out circles or any other shape for the ornament.
5-Let your toddler glue on each piece wherever they see fit.

***I used wrapping paper that already had circles on it.
The paper was shimmery and added something fun.
We hung little R's tree on the back of our front door. He was so excited to hang it up himself.

Christmas Wreath

1-Cut the inside of a paper plate off, so you have a nice circle to work with.

2- Use some branches from your Christmas tree or nearby forest to use to glue to your wreath. This should not be too hard to find if you live in my neck of the woods. :)

3- Use Elmer's glue and let your toddler glue those branches on. This glue takes a while to dry but works really well to hold the pieces on to the paper plate.

4- Once your branches are dry, hot glue on a crafty bow.

5- Add a little Merry Christmas sign for some color, just glue it to the back of your wreath.

6- Hang it up on your toddlers door:)
Happy Holiday Crafting!
