How to make the Christmas Wreath

1 – Use the sponge brush to paint the toilet rolls green and allow them to dry. (You’ll need 2-3 tubes per wreath.)

3 – Once the toilet rolls have dried completely, cut each into three pieces.

4 – Glue the cardboard pieces around the hole on the plate. Leave space at the top or bottom for the bow.

5 – Make a bow out of a piece of ribbon and glue it to the top of the plate. You can also use a Christmas bow like the ones you put on a present.

6 – Glue small red pom poms to the cardboard pieces to create “holly berries” on the wreath.

If you don’t have pom-poms you could also bunch small squares of red tissue paper into balls and glue those on instead.
