12 Days of Christmas Event: Day 6

On The 6th Day of Christmas My Crafty Friends Gave to Me..........

A cute kids crafty idea with Colton Stilwell:

Mr. Cutie Colton

Colton's wreath:

This is an EASY project that uses materials most people have at home. Paper/ styrofoam

 plates are cheap as is tissue paper. My lil guy LOVES his wreath and is displaying it proudly

 on our front door. Grab these basic supplies and craft with your kiddos!!! Great memories

 are sure to come out of it!!

 1. Paper or styrofoam plate. Using something round and cut a hole in the center.

 2. cut lil squares from green tissue paper... glue centers to plate.


3. tear little pieces of red tissue paper and roll into balls.

4. Glue balls on green "leaves" 
 5. make a bow and using wire or pipe cleaner, tie bow to pipe cleaner or wire.

Thank you Colton for making this beautiful wreath for today's 12 Days of Christmas Event!!


Now it's Colton's Mom, Tanya with a cute wreath frame

GREAT way to send a lil Christmas cheer and a photo of your child to a loved one. This is an

 easy project that requires only a few supplies. This can be altered to use any shape and can

 be added to for a fuller wreath. Limitless possibilities!!

Punch or Cut with your Cricut.. 3 different sized squares... or whatever shape you would like.( 

24 total) this will be 6 of each kind and 3 of each color. Assemble by alternating color pieces

 and gluing them together at 90 degree intervals.( OR.. Use a hole punch and a brad and brad

 them together as I did) Punch a 1/16th hole ( hole punch) at both top corners. Using your 

Cricut, punch, or even hole punch.. punch out 9 red 1/4" circles and 3 red 1/2 " circles. In the

 center of the layered scallops ( squares above) , glue 3 grouped 1/4" red circles. Place it on

 every other one. Next, glue the 1/2" circles to the center of the other scalloped squares. Add

 little highlight to the circles with a white pen. Add a photo and then tie a bow.. Ta Da... What a

 GREAT gift for anyone!! ( This can be altered so many different ways by adding more layers,

 different shapes and colors)
