DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Fall Tree CraftAutumn Wreath Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

The diameter of the completed wreath is about 15 inches.

This craft is fun for older children (and adults!) - Age 6+.  There are quite a few steps that younger kids (Age 2+) can help with, but they won't be able to do the craft independently.  This is a good family project!

This fun autumn wreath is made with, you guessed it, TP ROLLS!!  Everyone in my family has been collecting them for me and we ended up with a whole bunch of extra ones.  I was stumped for a way to use them!

We're hosting thanksgiving at our house this year and I wanted to make a big wreath to hang up.  I went to the craft store to find a wreath base and was shocked by how much they cost.

So...  This is what we did.

If you're like me, right now you're envisioning all the different types of wreathes you could make this way... Halloween with jack'o'lanterns, ghosts and bats, Christmas with holly leaves and berries, Valentine's Day with hearts, St Patrick's Day with shamrocks, rainbows and pots of gold, etc, etc.  I'm sure you'll see templates/instructions for various wreaths made along these basic lines pop up on the site over the next year or two!
