Thanksgiving Kids Craft ~ A Thankful Wreath

Thanksgiving Kids Craft ~ A Thankful Wreath

There are so many things to be thankful for and I wanted my kids to have that sense of thankfulness and to think about all of the blessings in their lives.  Instead of a Thankful Tree we decided to make a Thankful wreath.   It only took us 15 minutes and I love the way it turned out.

Materials needed:

Fabric ~ I used a fat-quarter

Styrofoam wreath


Construction Paper

Marker/Sharpie/Crayons/Pens {whatever you wish}


1.  I started by ironing my fat quarter, folding it in half and then cutting the entire width into 2 1/2 inch strips.

2.  Next, wrap the styrofoam wreath with the fabric securing as necessary.  You may need to adjust your wrap so that all of the thumbtacks are on the same side {none showing on the front side of the wreath}.

3.  Continue wrapping the wreath until it is entirely covered and no more white shows.

4.  Use any leftover strips to make a ribbon and a hanger for your wreath.

5.  Now for the fun part ~ if the kids are old enough to use scissors have them cut random leaf shapes from the construction paper.

6.  Once all of the leaves were cut out the kids folded them slightly in half lengthwise just to give them a little depth and then wrote what they were thankful for on the leaves.  We then placed the leaves on the wreath.  ~ all done!
