Create with Camp Beaumont: Christmas Wreaths
The Christmas Wreath is a fantastic festive edition to any door – and with so many variations, making a wreath can be a really fun activity for your whole family this season. We couldn’t resist trying it out and making our own this year!
We’ve made two simple and affordable wreaths this year, follow our step-by-step guide to make yours!
Step 1: Grab your materials! You’ll need: paper plates, twine or yarn, glue, scissors and decorative items including pom-poms, bells and bows
Step 2: Take your paper plate and cut around the inside – so you’re left with the outer border. Please ensure that you’re supervising any children that may be doing this.
Step 3: Start to wrap your twine or yawn around the paper plate so you’re covering the white space entirely.
Step 4: Decorate your wreath as you please! You can stick various embellishments to your wreath – and can even get out glitter, paints and more.
Step 5: Display your wreath for guests and loved ones!
Tissue Paper Wreath
This wreath is even easier – and may be better for very young children!
Step 1: Gather all of your materials – for this you’ll need: paper plates, tissue paper and glue.
Step 2: Prepare your paper plate as described above. Please make sure that you get the plate ready in advance for any little ones!
Step 3: Take strips of tissue paper and wrap them around your plate, so to cover the white space completely.
Step 4: From here, you can tear pieces of tissue paper and mould them as you please! We’ve created small bows with ours and stuck them to the wreath.
Step 5: When you’re done, hang it somewhere special for all to see!
We’ve also put together some fun ideas for you to follow this year.
The “Traditional Wreath” often features classic Christmas items such as bows, holly, berries, pine cones and more. Typically it follows a red, green and gold colour palette but you can mix this up as you please! You can even add in items such as cinnamon sticks and dried fruit to make it extra special. Here is our favourite tutorial about creating your own traditional wreath.
Please be careful when doing this with your children as some of the decorative items may be sharp!
A modern take on the Christmas Wreath (and a very popular design in 2019!) is the pompom wreath! Check out a tried-and-tested method of making one here.
Bauble Wreaths are very similar to pompoms – but they’re made using a very different method! However they are a tad more festive and are another way of customising your wreath and putting your own stamp on it! Check out our favourite Bauble Wreath tutorial here.
