Handprint Christmas Wreath

The personal touch with making a handart Christmas Wreath project is our favorite part. We actually made one of these Christmas Wreaths in a similar way last Christmas, and comparing the handprints and seeing how they’ve grown was really fun. This¬†simple Christmas craft¬†for toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners is sure to become one of your favorites. You will love that you don’t need any fancy materials for this preschool christmas crafts – just construction paper, scissors, glue, and any optional decorations like pompoms, glitter, etc.

Easy Construction Paper Christmas Craft

Handprint wreath

All you need to make this cute Christmas craft for kids are a few simple materials you probably already have at your home:

Materials:

  • green construction paper
  • paper plate (we used a dessert size)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue
  • optional decorations: red (or other color) paper, beads, ribbons, stickers, etc.

To decorate our wreath after making the handprint base, we used red ribbon to make a bow. We also used red construction paper to cut circles and grouped them to look like berries. This is the part to get creative! You use stickers, colorful paper, pompoms, and more to make ornaments or other decorations for your wreath.

First, trace the child’s handprint onto a piece of green construction paper. Next, cut out the center of the paper plate. This will make a ring to glue the handprints onto.

Now it’s time to cut out the handprints. To do this easily, stack a few pieces of construction paper together, using the traced handprint as a template to cut many at the same time. Continue cutting out handprints until you have enough to go around the paper plate ring.

Construction Paper Christmas crafts

After cutting out the handprints, it’s time to glue them onto the paper plate.

Glue them around the edge. We glue our on with the fingers facing the same direction, going around the plate, but this would also look nice with the fingers all pointing outwards.

Continue until the paper plate is covered with the handprints.
