Add some red, white, and blue decorations to your home as you celebrate the Fourth of July. What a better way to make decorations than to have your child make them. This super simple toilet paper roll wreath craft looks adorable hanging on the door or wall. After you make this awesome wreath, make a 4th of July sensory bottle too.
- toilet paper tubes (6-10)
- construction paper
- glitter, beads, etc.
Paint the toilet paper tubes and let them dry. We only used blue paint, but get creative with your patterns and colors.
Glue construction paper stars onto a couple of the tubes. We used our Elmer’s Early Learners Glue Pen. She can squeeze out just enough glue without making a huge mess. Look at that concentration!
Glue stripes of red construction paper onto a couple more tubes.
Wrap yarn or string around other toilet paper tubes. We used a dot of glue here and there as we wrapped the yarn around and then tied it at the end.
Get creative and use what you have on hand. Think glitter, stringing on beads, shapes, buttons, etc.
Thread the tubes onto a piece of string or twine and tie it together to form a circle.
Add decorative ribbon to the bottom or top of your wreath for extra color and texture.
This simple wreath craft is the perfect way for your child to add red, white, and blue to your home as she learns about why we celebrate the Fourth of July! Looking for another easy craft to try? Make this patriotic Summer kids craft that uses red, white, and blue tissue paper and contact paper.
