Easy Halloween Wreath Craft
Materials for Halloween Wreath Craft
- Small, circular grapevine wreath (I found inexpensive ones some similar to these and a bit smaller at my local craft store. Super cheap with a coupon! You could also cut out the center of a paper plate and use the outside circle to really simplify this craft.)
- Various colors and sizes of pompoms
- Yarn in various colors
- Googly eyes in various sizes
- Tacky glue
- Yarn or string for hanging
Directions for Making Halloween Wreath Craft
1. Find a nice space to work. I like to cover my table with these inexpensive drop cloths. (I have a set of four when I’m working in the classroom- enough to cover each table. I love that you reuse them over and over.)
3. Give the children a blank wreath and invite them to decorate their wreaths with the craft materials. Kids can wrap yarn around their wreaths. (They may need help getting the yarn tied on and off.)
They can also glue pompoms and googly eyes onto the wreath.
Tip: Because the wreaths are so porous with lots of gaps, I like to use Tackly glue to hold the materials. It’s thicker and holds better than regular school glue. (I tried out these Tacky glue pens with my most recent class, and they worked out great!)
Once the wreaths are dry, cut a small piece of yarn or string and tie it onto your wreath for hanging!
I loved seeing all the different creations the kids came up with. Many made monster eyes using the pompoms and googly eyes. You could also wrap green yarn around your wreath and add orange pompoms to make it resemble a pumpkin patch!
