How to make a simple Easter wreath

As Bostik bloggers, we receive a box of art supplies each month to make a craft within a theme, and this month the theme was Easter. We decided to make a simple Easter wreath, something which involved very little more than gluing and sticking so thatย  all of the children could join in and create something special for our Easter celebrations next month.

You will need

A sheet of soft foam or card,

Glue or blu tack

Ribbon

Assorted foam shapes, buttons, beads, card and glitter

Scissors

Something round to draw round

1. Draw a large circle onto the foam/card and a smaller circle inside the first. We used different sized glass bowls for this.

2. Carefully cut around the outer and inner circles, I did this part for Eva as it can be a little tricky for small hands.

3. Make a small hole at the top of the wreath and thread through the ribbon. This will allow you to hang the wreath when it is finished.

4. Begin to place your foam shapes and decorations around the wreath. We used glue, blu tack and sticky backed shapes. The children found this so easy, simply filling as much of the space as possible until we had created a colourful, Easter hanging wreath.
