St. Patrick’s Day Wreath-Kid’s Craft Tutorial

We Luhuhuhuve St. Patrick’s Day.  The excuse to wear green , the pesky little Leprechauns that wreck havoc on our house, the parades, the green food, etc.   It also means spring is right around the corner here is in the Midwest.  Oooh I can’t wait!  While we get very into the holiday around here, we still like to keep our decor simple and fun.

Download the “We Are Lucky” template and print in color onto your white card stock.  Cut out each shamrock and set aside.

Measure about two inches in from the edge of the paper plate and cut a circle out of the inside of the plate.  Use your hole punch to punch a hole in the top of the plate.

Working in small sections, place a generous amount of white glue on your paper plate and spread it around with your finger to evenly distribute the glue.  Take one piece of tissue paper and place the eraser end of your pencil in the center of the tissue square.  Fold the tissue down over the pencil as shown.

Repeat these two steps over, and over, and over until you have covered the entire paper place with tissue squares. (If working with a younger child you can  glue the tissue sqaures onto the paper plate flat.  It looks just as cute!)

As an option: You can create a mat around each photo by placing each photo onto white card stock and cutting around the photo allowing some of the white card stock to show.  Attach the photo to the card stock with glue.
