Creative DIY Easter Wreath Crafts for the Family
Decorating your home for Easter doesn’t have to mean buying everything ready-made from a store. You, and your family, can DIY cute holiday crafts to display during Easter-time. These easy wreath art activities are perfect ways to accent your holiday décor.
For each wreath, start with a carboard donut shape. Reuse and old box, drawing a circle on the don’t. Draw a smaller circle inside of it and cut the entire shape out. Now you have a base to build the rest of your Easter wreath on.
Cut or tear pieces of colorful tissue paper into square shapes. Choose a color scheme, such as pastels or rainbows. Crinkle each piece of tissue and glue it onto the cardboard donut. Instead of dabbing a dot of glue onto each individual piece of tissue, paint small patches of clear-drying school glue onto the cardboard. Press the tissue on to it and then move on to another area.
Marshmallow Chicks and Bunnies
You suddenly have a mountain of Easter Peeps. And the sugar is making the kids bounce off the walls. Instead of eating all the marshmallow chicks and bunnies, let them harden (which pretty much happens on its own anyway) and glue them onto the wreath. Make a colorful pattern or go with a monochromatic (one color) theme.
Gather together spring-themed ribbons scraps. This can include floral printed ribbons or pastel colors. Tie the ribbon into bows (this will help your young child build fine motor skills). Glue the ribbons onto the wreath, making a textured collage.
