A Very "Handy" Wreath!

Holiday decorating can not be complete without a wreath! Kid made wreaths are sure to brighten any home, especially when they are made from your little ones hands!

1. Trace your child's hand. You will need to make several of these to go all the way around the wreath. (I used two full sheets of construction paper for each wreath.)

2. Cut a circle from a piece of cardboard to glue the hands to. I used an old cereal box, but you may also use a paper plate.

3. Glue the hands around the circle overlapping as you go along.

4. We then added a bow and berries that we cut from red construction paper.

Your wreath is now ready to hang up for all to see!

If you like this project, check out the Christmas Trees made with our hands from last year! You can find them here!


  1. Oh wow... that looks great.
    I have always loved that craft!!

  2. I remember doing one of these - or at least something similar - in grade school...and I'm pretty sure that my mom still pulls it out of the box every year and hangs it...


  3. I always forget about this craft. We are going to have to make one {or two} of these for the boys to have on their door. Thanks!

  4. Totally the cutest idea ever!!!! And if you do it every year, you can see how their hands are growing.


  5. Love it! I was thinking about doing this for fall and use different colors, but I got lazy:(

    Gonna try and be a little more creative this weekend:)

  14. My daughters made something similar when they were in preschool, except they used paint and their hands on felt.
