Christmas Pinterest Craft – Wreath
Posted December 21, 2014on:
As promised here, this is the blog post about the hands/feet wreath in the middle of our Christmas mantle.
I found this on Pinterest and I knew I had to try it!

I had supplies. I had green cardstock in two different shades. I had red cardstock scraps and a circle hole punch. I also had a paper plate to make the process of wreath-creating much easier.
I took two full 12in x 12in sheets of green cardstock in a light shade and a dark shade.
I took M’s hand and traced it out.
Sorry so blurry. It was hard enough keeping her still to trace her hand, so you could imagine how hard it was for me to try to trace her hand AND take a picture at the same time!
After I did her hands, she wanted her feet traced too. The pinterest project doesn’t feature feet, but I figure we could take some creative license and add some feet. So I took the other shade of green cardstock and used that for her feet.
In the end, we had a stack of hands and feet.
I cut a hole in the middle of a paper plate, covered it with glue and we just started sticking the hands and feet down. It took a bit of guidance from me to make sure we made it circular. She had fun sticking things down in the “goopy glue.”
I used my 1in circle hole punch to punch out several red circles out of a piece of red scrap cardstock. I put down blobs of glue and allowed M to stick them down where the blobs of glue were.
I’m sure we could have covered the paper plate better buy adding more hands and feet, but the amount of hands and feet we had were just the right amount to keep her attention.
Have I told you how much I love having a three-year old during Christmas time?!
