Would you like to welcome summer with a simple, affordable and unique decorative wreath for your door? It's easy and fun for the whole family!
Kick-start your creativity by fashioning a wreath using materials found either inside or outside of your home.
What you’ll need
- Cardboard, or something to make a circular base with
- Glue gun
- Decorating materials
Cut out a large circle from a piece of cardboard or other sturdy material. Use a can or another circular item to cut a hole in the middle of your wreath.
Decorate your wreath! Glue or tie on items that spark joy: ribbons, yarn, buttons, costume jewelry, fabric, paper, recyclables, old toys. If you go outside, you might find twigs, pebbles, feathers, leaves or brand new pussy willows. The sky's the limit!
After you finish your wreath, you can add a written message if desired, and hang it proudly to cheer up your neighbours.
Share your wreaths with us on social media using #KickstartCreativityHfX. We can’t wait to see what you create!
