Tissue Paper Fall Wreath

This simple but beautiful Tissue Paper Fall Wreath remains to be one of my all-time favourite Fall crafts for  toddlers and preschoolers.

It poured rain for the better part of the day, and because we’re focusing on fall crafts this month, we had an excuse to pull out the craft supplies and make this easy Autumn wreath.  It’s such a pretty little wreath, and so easy for kids to make.

The best part – the crumpling of the tissue paper of course!  Little ones just love that step!

You’re going to love this one.  It’s super-easy to prep for, it looks great, and kids of all ages will enjoy making this craft.

To make our Fall Wreath, you’ll need:

  • paper plates (or cardboard cut into circles – the panels of a cereal box are great for this)
  • tissue paper
  • glue
  • brown construction paper or a paper bag
  • artificial leaves or flowers

How we made our wreaths:

We used paper plates with the centers cut out as the base for our wreaths.

Each Hooligan tore a piece of brown construction paper into strips.  These strips were supposed to look like twigs or branches.  

Once the “branches” were glued around the wreath, we crumpled 3×3 inch squares of fall coloured tissue paper and glued those where-ever we pleased.

Next we got out our low-heat glue gun and the Hooligans tried that out for the first time, adding a couple of artificial fall leaves and a ribbon for hanging.

I didn’t think of it when the Hooligans were here, but after they’d gone home I added a couple of artificial sunflowers to my wreath for a pop of colour.

And this is what the two youngest Hooligans created.  I was running short on paper plates, so they made Fall Trees by gluing our wreath materials onto a narrow strip of cardboard.  

Happy Fall! :)

    In the fall I do a thankful wreath with whatever kids in whatever classroom I am subbing in at the time. Usually it is for the teacher, but it goes over so well. I pass out precut leaves and let them write their thankful message on them. We sort them and makes wreathes if there are enough.
