DIY Christmas Felt Handprint Wreath

What's cuter than giving grandparents a handmade gift for Christmas that can be a memento for years to come? Two years ago, we made a Mistletoes painting for all of Lincoln and Addie's grandmas and grandpas, so last year we wanted to follow up with something equally cute - and what we came up with was this DIY Christmas Felt Handprint Wreath.

The supply list is simple:

-Tacky Glue
-Hot Glue Gun
-Green Felt
-Sheet of White Paper
-Pipe Cleaners
-Pom-Poms (or something else to decorate)

We turned it into a multi-family event so that we had two moms working on this project. It ended up being a little time consuming, but easier than we feared!

Step 1: Trace your child's hand on the paper and cut it out, then cut out felt hands. We decided that 10 handprints was a good number, so we used 5 from each kid.

Step 2: Make a Circle Out of Two Pipe Cleaners, then Attach Hands to the Wreath. I tried using Tacky Glue and it didn't stick quickly enough for my liking - so I switched to my glue gun. I alternated the kids hands so that it looked even all the way around the wreath.

3. Decorate! We let the kids do most of this and they had a great time sticking pom-poms on the dots of glue we made for them.

Step 4: Add a Pipe Cleaner Hanging Handle and Some Finishing Touches. I tied ribbon bows at the top of each wreath, and added a cardstock circle (with hot glue) over the pipe cleaners on the back of the wreath to give it a little bit more structure.

Step 5: Gift and Enjoy!

These were a huge hit with all of our grandparents!
