Handprint Christmas Wreath Craft

Maybe I’m crazy, but I think it’s never too early to start thinking of Christmas decorations. And I’m here to say it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, starting with this sweet Handprint Christmas Wreath Craft! This would be a really cute Christmas decoration for a classroom, too!

Handprint Christmas Wreath Craft

This Christmas wreath is made simply with handprints glued around a cardboard wreath form. You can make the wreath any size you want. Of course the larger you go, the more handprints you’ll need. Then, for the finishing ribbon, we have a Free Printable Wreath Bow Template just for that.
