Christmas Wreath

This is a project I learned from my mom when I was about 8 years old! We did one of these for Christmas, and I still have it! So, I thought I would make another one since they are so easy and cute.
Supplies Needed:
  1. Criss Cross Scissors ( I think they are officially called pinking sheers)
  2. 5 Coordinating fabrics, 1/8 of a yard each
  3. A pen
  4. And a foam circle

First, Cut all of your fabric so that each edge has a criss cross on each edge. Then cut small squares.

Next take your Square and put it on top of the wreath. With the pen, push it down so that the center is stuck into the foam.


Continue sticking the fabric in close together so that none of the foam shows

Then, You are done!

A cute little wreath to hang on the door or wall.
