Looking for an easy winter craft you can do in under 10 minutes? Try momstown’s Easy Snowball Wreath!
I’m always amazed about how many craft ideas can be spun out of a paper plate! It’s a cheap craft supply with endless ideas to work it into. Our snowball wreath is yet another paper plate craft that looks so cute, so easy and inexpensive. Perfect combination for crafting!
Craft Supplies you will need:
- Paper plate
- Pompoms or cotton balls
- Glue – white glue preferred for preschoolers
- Snowflake décor (optional, we had the plastic snowflakes leftover from Christmas)
- Ribbon for hanging
This is a very simple and easy craft - you need to do is cut the centre out of the plate. Then start gluing cotton balls directly onto the remaining plate, you will probably need to glue in two rows.
Once glue is dry, tie a ribbon around to hang the wreath. You may chose to add some little snowflakes (paper ones would be sweet too) to hang into the middle like my son did with thread we tied to the top of the wreath).
Note: My son has taken a recent major interest in the glue gun, so we used it for this activity. Although it dries quickly, I would not recommend it for this project. Hot glue and paper plate (which transfers heat) – not suggested. We didn’t have any issues but were very careful and if I were to do over, I would totally use white glue which would work better given the materials.
