Torn Scrapbook Paper Holly Wreath

Every year we make new wreaths to hang around the house. They are loads of fun to have. This year we change it up and went with a favorite at our house of torn paper wreaths.

Even with older kids, I love having fine motor activities that don’t look like we are working on a fine motor. Plus we had to make it a holly wreath since we have holly bushes at our house!

These are simple and easy to make and loads of fun.

I love that wreath are a great Christmas theme. We try and pick books to go with our crafts. This year’s book for our wreath was The Sweet Smell of Christmas. We love reading this one and it is fun to pick out the theme they will use.

How we made our wreaths

After we picked out our colors of paper we went about tearing up the green paper to put around the wreath. We made sure to cover the wreath in as much green as we could. We used two colors of green scrapbook paper to do this.

If you notice we have a glue on a lid and are dipping our paper in the glue. This was a fun sensory activity as well as fine motor. Plus our glue bottle just would not let the glue out! And yes we did make a mess but it was so much fun!

Then we had fun tearing the small red dots to glue around our wreaths. I suggested doing this two ways. They could tear the red circles one at a time and glue them on. Or they could tear out all the red dots and place them around and then glue.
