Craft Stick Wreath

Here is a simple last minute craft to make with the kids over the Christmas break.

You will need: 15 large craft sticks, green paint, brush, craft glue, beads and ribbon or bow.

Paint the craft sticks and allow to dry.

Glue 5 sticks together in the shape of a pentagon.

Glue another pentagon together and glue in on top, slightly tilted to the left.

Make a third pentagon, and glue in on top of the other 2, slightly tilted.

Wrap on ribbon and glue on bow.
Glue on beads to look like berries.
Glue on a hanger.

This is cute! I wish I had some craft sticks and paint here. Peter was so bored yesterday he actually ASKED to do a craft.

Thank you for visiting my blog during Kimba's open house last week. I like your kid craft ideas. I teach 3 year olds at a preschool so I will visit again for some ideas!

This is a very cute idea. I have a huge box of these sticks and am always trying to think of creative projects to do with my little ones. I've linked on my site:
