|We had fun tearing up the paper into tiny pieces. :)|
I miss our arts and crafts sessions. Last year, we did a lot of projects during the weekends. But this year has been insanely busy, for the three of us - me most especially - we're lucky if we can really squeeze in one project in a month. I know the kid misses those too but she contents herself with getting me to color a page of a coloring book with her. Some days I would bargain to just share 1 page with her as I'm already hurrying to go to a meeting. Sigh.What did I get myself into?
So anyways, back to our paper wreath it struck me the minute I set my eyes on it because I had all the materials on hand. It needs the following:
- 1 paper plate
- red and green paper (I used a mix of art paper, japanese paper/tissue paper, and construction paper)
- glitter glue (I had gold on hand)
- white glue
- Make a hole on the center of the paper plate. I followed the dent on the plate and left the side where the corrugated design is.
- Tear the green paper into tiny pieces (to whatever size you desire).
- Spread glue around the wreath base (i.e. paper plate donut) and start sticking your torn pieces of green paper. Layer them till you get your desired thickness (we did 3 layers, i think)
- Take about 4 inches wide x 8 inches long red japanese/tissue paper and make a crease in the center (by pinching) to make a ribbon. Attach a 2 x 4 inch at the back of the ribbon for the ribbon tail.
- Dot with glitter glue. And set aside to dry.
- Punch a hole on your wreath and attach a string so you can hang your wreath.
- Hang in your fave spot and Enjoy!!!!
