Christmas Wreaths

We hosted our Home Learners group for craft day today and made craft-stick wreaths.

For each wreath you need 15 craft sticks, some red ribbon, and some glue (we used glue dots).  I couldn't find craft sticks the color of green I wanted, so I just painted them the night before.

First, you glue the sticks into three pentagon shapes.

Next, you place the three pentagons on top of each other and alternate the points, spreading them slightly apart to make a more circular shape.  You glue them together where they overlap.

Finally, you wrap red ribbon around the wreath, and embellish as you wish (we used pom poms and buttons).
