Happy Holidays! This is Amy from Mod Podge Rocks, bringing you a great kids’ craft for the Christmas season. Children and Mod Podge go so well together that I wanted to show you a way to incorporate the two AND decorate for your holiday parties. This was so fun for me – your kids are going to have a blast!
First gather these supplies:
Fabric Scraps – I used about thirteen 12 – 20″ strips
Offray Ribbon Grosgrain 5/8″ Red – 12 inches
Buttons – 6 coordinating
This could be one of the easiest Mod Podge projects you’ll ever do, which is why it’s so great for children. Simply grab your fabric strips (you can use squares or random shapes too) and spread a medium layer of Mod Podge onto the back (fabric face down).
Wrap the strips tightly around the Styrofoam wreath. Make sure to cover all of the white. If you have squares or shapes, simply glue them randomly down to the wreath form. Keep going until you’ve covered the entire wreath.
Once the wreath is completely covered, coat the entire project with Mod Podge. If you want the glitter to really sparkle, let dry and then give the wreath a second coat.
Take your felt and draw some holly leaves. Cut out and then attach to the wreath with craft glue. Accent with some buttons and then a strip of ribbon to hang on the back.
I don’t know that I’ve ever done an easier craft, or one that was more fun! Your children are going to thoroughly enjoy their participation in your holiday decorating. Have a great holiday season!
