DIY Christmas Wreath 1

DIY Hand Print Christmas Wreath

My daughter is very creative and I asked her if she had any ideas to help me with a Christmas craft. She responded, “yes.” So I got her to gather up the items that she would need for the project.

Items Needed:

Green Construction Paper

Red Construction Paper

Paper Plate

Glue (no glue sticks)

Green marker

Red marker




  1. Trace your child’s hand onto the green construction paper.

DIY Christmas Wreath 1

  1. Carefully cut out your child’s hand print and then trace the original hand print to make enough to fit around the paper plate.
  2. Then trace and carefully cut out two red hand prints.
  3. Carefully glue the green hand prints onto the paper plate. You can put them close together or leave a gap, it is up to you.
  4. At the bottom of the paper plate, glue the two red hand prints on top of the green ones. The red hand prints represent the wreath’s bow.
  5. Once you have completed gluing the hands on, then cut out the enter of the paper plate.
  6. Use a green marker to color/fill in the gaps on the wreath.
  7. Write Merry Christmas and Year on red hand prints.

I love this craft because it captures my son’s hand prints. He is growing very quickly and I love capturing every moment that I can.

    This is such a cute holiday craft for the kids to make, and something to hold onto over the years.

    I love this craft! You will be pulling it out each holiday absolutely amazed at how much your lithe one has grown. Very special!

      I will have to hold onto this craft and see how much his hands grow by next Christmas. Time has flown by so fast and he will be grown up like my other kids before I know it.

      There are a ton of great crafts for this time of year. It’s crazy how fast the time goes by and you can’t get to everything that you wanted to do.

    What a cute craft! I think handprint crafts are so personal, and if laminated, you can keep them (and maybe a new one each year), they get to see how much they’ve grown.

      I wish that I owned a laminator. It would make these types of crafts last forever.

    This looks like so much fun! I wish my kids were still small enough… Maybe I’ll pitch this to them and they’ll want to do it!

      Good luck Robin. My daughter still enjoys crafts but it depends on what we are doing.

    Esther, I hope their grandparents enjoy their wreaths.

  20. […] Last year my daughter helped come up with our fun craft last year. She is super creative and I loved her idea. She took a paper plate out of the kitchen cabinet and cut out the center. Then she took my son’s hand print and traced it. Then she made a template with one of my son’s hand print and she cut out enough to go around the edge of the paper plate.  For the instruction please click here. […]
