Recycled Cardboard Christmas Wreath for Kids

The girls and I worked on a Christmas wreath for their room today. It's sort of a kid version inspired by a craft we saw at Elise Blaha.

We traced a cookie cutter, and cut star shapes from a Little Debbie Christmas Tree Snack Cake box (just don't tell Jamie Oliver what I've been feeding the kids!). We cut 5 stars from the decorated front side of the box, and 5 from the white back side.

Then, we cut 10 more from the back side of a cereal box.

We glued them together in five groups of three.

And then, we joined the groups of three together, with the five remaining stars, and hung it on a thumbtack. It was a pretty simple process, but the girls were really happy with the end result.

It's great to be homeschooler.
