Easter Wreath Decoration

IMG_2865

Sometimes I have cut out wreath shapes from paper plates but when you need to make 50 that can take a while! So when I found that Baker Ross were selling cardboard wreath shapes I was really keen to try them out. As you can see they are dark brown, obviously made of card and come with a hole and some string so they can be displayed at home. A big win! Here’s the link to Baker Ross with all the info about the craft wreaths.

The embellishments are from Hobbycraft (eggs and bunnies) Take the eggs out of the packaging well ahead as they really do smell! The paper hearts and circles are made with a paper punch and the confetti is the biodegradable kind. I cut the bird and ladybird from molliemakes magazine. The Easter greeting is on sugar paper and I did write happy Easter 50 times. Part way through I began to worry that I was spelling Easter incorrectly!

I will definitely be using the craft wreaths for other crafts. Really great find.

To make this simple wreath you will need

Paper plates with the centre cut out

Leaf shapes cut from sugar paper (construction paper)

Petits fours paper cases

Buttons/Tissue paper

Glue (preferably PVA as everything will stick better)

Glue spreaders

To make

Begin by gluing leaves to the paper plate ring.

Add the petits fours cases to make flowers

Add buttons/tissue paper to the centre of the petits fours cake cases (optional – no need to use these if younger children are making the wreaths as buttons can be a chocking hazard)

Note – separate the petits fours cake cases before the children begin or you will end up with a sticky cake case mess!
