The hooligans have been busy making halloween crafts for days! We made these simple Halloween Wreaths yesterday. They’re easy enough for the youngest toddlers to make, using items you have around the house.
To make your halloween wreaths, you’ll need:
- cardboard (cereal box weight)
- tissue paper in Halloween colours, cut into 2×2 inch squares
- googly eyes
- black paint
- fabric, netting or ribbon to make your bow
I traced our wreaths on to cardboard, using a plate for the outer circle, and a bowl for the inner circle, and the Hooligans painted those black.
Finish by stapling on a colour co-ordinated bow. We used a variety of materials for our bows. I had a strip of black fabric that I tied into a bow for one. The purple bows came from a skein of gauzy ribbon that I picked up at the dollar store, and my favourite bow was this one!
I had saved a few pieces of netting that fruit comes packaged in. It was perfect for this project!
Aren’t these just the cutest?
Simple, inexpensive and cute as a button! Just the way we like things around here!
