We’re on a roll with our Christmas crafts this week and I’m excited to share with you another really simple Christmas tree ornament that’s been made by the kids. These Mini Pom Pom Wreaths look really effective and other than help with the cutting due to me making these with toddlers they’ve done the rest themselves.
You will need:
- Pom poms
- Green paint
- Paint brush
- Glue gun or strong glue
Firstly, I used a small bowl to draw a circle on the card and then a cup, smaller than the bowl, to draw another circle inside that one. I then cut it out so we were left with a wreath template.
Next, the Little Tots painted their cardboard rings green, you could use green card but I wanted to make sure these were really sturdy so used an old cardboard box and we painted them green.
Once the rings were dry they used their fine motor skills to pick up the little pom poms and stick them down. We started off with PVA glue but this wasn’t working at all so I used the glue gun and they placed them on top (with lots of supervision).
It did get a little messy with the glue gun getting stringy but we got there in the end and then added a ribbon once they were dry.
At the moment we’ve put them on the notice board as our tree isn’t up yet, but we’ll be doing it this weekend when we’ll be adding some of our other homemade decorations over the years such as our Glitter Pine Cones, Paper Plate Angels and Christmas Salt Dough Ornaments.
