Holly Wreath

You will need:

  • Large Polyring
  • Scrap Card
  • Green Card
  • Green Crepe Paper
  • Cellotape
  • Red Tissue
  • PVA Glue
  • Plastic Pot
  • Red Ribbon
  • Small Pipecleaner

Instructions:

  1. Begin by cutting strips of green crepe paper (about 3cms wide by 15cms long) and cellotape around polyring.
  2. Once polyring is covered in crepe paper, draw a holly leaf shape onto scrap card, then cut out. Use this as a template to draw holly  leaf shapes onto green card.
  3. Once you have drawn your holly leaf shapes, cut out and tape to polyring. Be sure to stick on holly leaves in a clockwise direction, with the leaves layered on top of one another. Work your way around the polyring until coming to the point where you began.
  4. Make holly berries by tearing off strips of red tissue paper, scrunch into a ball, and glue onto holly leaves.
  5. Complete your wreath by cutting a section of red ribbon, tying it into a bow and glue onto wreath. Also take a small pipecleaner and twist into a loop and glue this onto the back of the wreath so you can hang it up.
