Leaf Wreath

Leaf Wreath by Michele Higgins

 

Fall into autumn with this festive yet simple craft!  Children will enjoy collecting colorful leaves to use when creating a leaf wreath! Take your students on a leaf hunt before the activity – fresh  leaves are better!  If you want to create a leaf wreath that will last longer, you can buy tissue leaves from a local craft store.

 

What You Need:

 

• Leaves or tissue leaves

 

• Large paper plate

 

• Glue

 

• Ribbon

 

 

 

 

 

 

What To Do:

 

1. Cut the middle of a paper plate out to create a ring for the wreath.

 

2. Glue the leaves along the ring alternating colors! Be creative with the color pattern and leaf pattern.

 

3. Create a bow using the ribbon and glue bow to center of the wreath.

 

4. Hang the wreath from a window or door to show you are ready for fall!
