A Cheap And Cheerful Decoration
For The Kids To Make
|Valentine Day Paper Wreath|
This Valentine Day I intend to make a bit of an effort, (I never do), and this is the first little make that I intend to put on the front door to welcome Mr Whizz Kid home. It is cheap and cheerful and costs absolutely nothing ...
|Find some pamphlets or newspaper supplements|
|Using a sheet of colourful paper cut out a leaf shape on the fold|
Force a seam along the length with the colour uppermost
|Make a nice pile of these cutouts|
|Using a stapler attach these 'leaves' to the backing circle|
|Slowly build up the layers|
|Try and cover the whole of the backing circle|
|Make sure each staple is invisible|
|Cover the circle with the cutout piece|
|Add a cutout pink heart and a red ribbon|
Costs absolutely nothing and keeps the kids busy for half an hour. A more sophisticated one can be made with red crepe paper or fancy wrapping paper. I intend to lightly spray this one red and sparkly when I get a chance to visit the craft shop tomorrow ...
