"Handprint Wreath"

This wreath is something to cherish for years to come because it is made of my youngest child's handprint.


Scrap paper
Green craft foam
White craft foam
Red craft foam


Trace your child's hand onto scrap paper. Trace this paper handprint 4 times onto green foam and 4 times onto white foam. (It's much easier to trace the paper handprint several times than the child's hand!!) Color the white handprints light green. Cut out all 8 handprints. Arrange the 4 light green hands into a square, and glue the green hands in between them. They will be in 2 layers.

Cut out a bow from the red foam and glue to the wreath. Using a hole punch, punch several red berries from the red foam. Glue these randomly on the wreath, as singles, doubles, and bunches of three. Glue a ribbon hanger on the back of the wreath.
