Mini Wreath | Homemade Christmas Wreaths

Mini Wreath

Kids will have fun thinking of clever places to hang this 1 1/2-inch cutie: on the end of a light pull, in a school locker, on a Christmas tree...

Materials

  • 2 green glitter pipe cleaners (we used 6mm-wide nylon glitter ones)
  • Scissors
  • Ring from the neck of a soda or water bottle (the piece that locks the lid before the bottle is opened; pry off with a spoon if necessary)
  • Short length of narrow ribbon for a bow • Miniature accent such as a reindeer or bird (optional; available at craft and dollhouse-supply stores)
  • Craft glue
  • Fishing line or narrow ribbon for a hanger

Instructions

Mini Wreath

1. Wrap one end of a pipe cleaner firmly around the bottle ring. Continue wrapping until the ring is covered in snug coils. If necessary, add a second pipe cleaner. Trim any excess pipe cleaner.

2. Tie on a ribbon bow and, if you like, glue on a reindeer, bird, or other accent. Let the glue dry.

3. Use fishing line or narrow ribbon to hang the wreath.
