We discovered this nature wreath on Happy Hooligans and had to share it as it provides you with a great opportunity to discuss the changing of the seasons with your child and is a wonderful way to spend some creative time together.

What you will need

  • Large paper bag (a bag with or without print on it is fine)
  • Artificial or real leaves
  • Artificial or real flowers
  • Raffia
  • Low-temperature glue gun

Method

  1. Smooth out your paper bag and open up the sealed bottom of the bag.
  2. Start at the bottom of the bag and gently fold and roll the edges outward,working your way around the opening as you go. As you’re rolling, loosely scrunch the edges, continuing to work in a circular fashion until you get to thetop of the bag.
  3. Use your glue gun to secure any loose edges in place.
  4. Now glue the leaves and flowers around the paper bag.
  5. Finish by loosely winding a few lengths of raffia around your wreath.

Now you have a vibrant flora display to brighten your home no matter the season or time of day.
