A good reminder in life to keep listening and learning. And most importantly for me, going back to the Word of God and praying. All of these things have to happen to love and serve others well. Praying my kids learn this now, and that I’ll always keep being open to listening and learning.

PAPER WREATH

April 9, 2020


A simple wreath to put together to celebrate Easter!

Supplies

WREATH LEAVES pdf

MESSAGE BANNER pdf

Cardboard from a shipping box

Scissors

Watercolors/markers

Glue

Directions

1. Cut out your desired wreath size from cardboard. First, cut out a circle. Then, cut out another circle by leaving 2”-3” border to be used for the wreath.

2. Print out WREATH LEAVES and MESSAGE BANNER. We used about 14 printed pages for our 2’ round wreath.

3. Cut out leaves and glue onto your wreath.

4. Paint the blooms on the wreath.

NOTE: If you want to paint all the leaves and blooms, paint each print out first before glueing onto the wreath.

We wanted a minimalist wreath, so I left the leaves black & white and just painted the blooms.

5. Cut out your Easter banner message and glue in place.
