Materials for fall leaf wreath craft

Step 1: Prepare the paper plate wreath

*Adults, please do the cutting for your littles!*

Fold your paper plates in half and cut a half-circle out of the straight end to remove the center of the plate. I followed the inner line to keep all of the sides even.

Fold paper plate in half, cut out the middle to make a wreath

Open up the plate and cut a hole at the top with the hole punch about a half-inch from the top. I cut 2 overlapping holes to better fit my ribbon. This is the top of the DIY fall wreath.

Step 2: Add the fall leaves to your wreath

Add glue to the spaces on your wreath where you want to put the leaves and fill that baby up! We alternated colors and did some overlapping so that there would not be too much white space showing.

Make sure that you do not cover up the holes you punched at the top of the wreath, we will be using that space next.

Step 3: Thread ribbon through the top holes

Cut a strip of ribbon and thread it through the hole at the top of the paper plate wreath. Tie the two ends into a knot, leaving a loop that can be used for hanging. We chose orange ribbon to match our fall leaf colors and our ribbon was about 12 inches long – when folded and tied, the fall wreath craft hangs at about 6 inches.

Now, let your wreath dry, hang it, and admire!
