- Cut about 50 pieces of yarn. They should all be the same length (an inch or larger depending on the size of your paper.)
- Form a circular shape with the pieces of yarn. Younger students may need to trace a circle in the center of the paper, then place the yarn on the edges of the circle. A small milk or juice bottle cap or card stock circle template could be used for tracing.
- Glue the yarn pieces onto the paper.
- Add a ribbon or bow if desired.
Any color yarn will work or a combination of colors. If using multiple colors, they can be placed randomly or in a pattern.
If you want to incorporate a little math exercise, the kids can follow a designated pattern or make up their own pattern. The kids could make more than one wreath using different patterns.
