Fall Paper Plate Wreath

Handprint wreaths hold a special place in our hearts. They are easy, require very few materials, and create an amazing keepsake. This one was made with fall in mind!

Materials Needed

  • Paper Plate
  • Construction Paper (We suggest yellow, orange, and brown)
  • A Piece of Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tape (Optional)

I started by cutting out the middle of a paper plate.

Next, I sat my little one down and traced her hands on brown, orange, and yellow paper. I did not get pictures of this because Mr. Not So Crafty was at work. This activity would have went quicker with two adults, but our schedule last week just didn’t allow for that.

Next, I helped my little one glue on the handprints. I have tried laying the paper plate both ways for crafts like this, but find that if you keep it like you would to eat on it, the handprints are easier to glue on.

After that, I let it dry for awhile. Once it was dry, I flipped it over and taped a piece of ribbon on the back so we could hang it up. If you do not have tape, you can glue it, but it might be a bit messy!

The end result makes a perfect gift for grandparents or just a nice keepsake to remember how little your child’s hands were!
