We’ve made a few Christmas wreath crafts in the past but I was suprised by how many ideas I started coming up with for using this resource once I got started.
This template really is one that can be used in so many different ways and it’s basic Christmas wreath outline means that there’s lots of room for younger kids to be able to decorate too.
There are two different designs available in the PDF pack.
The first design is a plain basic Christmas wreath outline while the second design has a bow at the bottom of the wreath.
You can print both or just the one you want and of course you can print as many copies as you like making it perfect for crafts with groups of children in preschool or in a classroom.

How To Decorate Your Paper Christmas Wreath Template
Using this template as a Christmas wreath coloring page is a simple activity to set up and a good way to keep your kids occupied.
Just print the design you want and grab your markers, coloring pencils or crayons.
This would be a great design to add your own designs too as you can decide what you want to draw on your wreath.
Would you add some holly leaves, mistletoe and berries or add flowers and decorations.
Christmas stickers are one of those things that I tend to buy and then have no idea what to do with, but they’re great for kids fine motor skills and they’re always really popular with my kids too.
You could color in your wreath and then use stickers to decorate this.
This is also a great way to add any details your kid really *needs* to add, we’ve had reindeer, Santa and nutcracker stickers before, all of which my kids loved but had been too tricky for them to draw.
Pom Pom Painting
Use pom poms dipped in red and green paint to color in the leaves and berries on your Christmas wreath template.
Just pour a little paint onto a plate or tray and then dab your pom pom in the paint before dabbing it onto the wreath.
If your child doesn’t like to get messy fingers you can always use a clothes peg to hold the pom pom.
Similar to pom pom painting and a great alternative if you don’t have any of those readily available.
Just grab a piece of aluminium foil and scrunch it into a ball shape.
You can then dab this into some paint and use it to decorate your wreath.
Tear green paper into pieces and cover your wreath in glue before sticking them down to color it in.
This is a great way to use up any scrap paper too as well as any old magazines.
Handprint crafts are always good for making a cute keepsake. When we make these I will normally practice with my kids on a piece of blank paper first so that they know how to press their hands down to make a handprint.
Pour a bit of green paint onto a plate of tray and press your hand down into it making sure that all of your palm and fingers are covered.
You can then place handprints all around your wreath. Another way to ensure that you make full handprints is to paint you hand with a paintbrush rather than putting your hand into the paint.
Place glue on your wreath and then cover it in colored buttons. Obviously if you do this activity with young children you will need to especially vigilant due to the choking risk.
Place your template in a plastic wallet or pouch and you can use it as a playdough mat.
Use red and green playdough to decorate your wreath, making green leaves and rolling or squishing the red playdough to make berries.
There are two ways to decorate a wreath with bottle tops. You can either glue red and green ones onto it to color it in or use them as stamps and dip them into paint before dabbing them onto your template.
