Fall Handprint and Leaf Wreath


I have a small obsession with handprint crafts!  I love them and I think that it is one of those things that you save.  I have ones from my 4 year old last year and his hands grew so much it is amazing.  I saw a handprint wreath somewhere and it got me thinking how it would be cute to do with the toddlers.  

Supplies needed:
Glue
Brown Paper
Yellow, Orange, and Red paper
Kids

I cut a wreath shape out of brown construction paper.  It took me a few tries to get an actual circle instead of a weird oval shape, but if you have something to trace I recommend it!  

Then I traced each of the kids hands and cut out equal amounts of each color.  I used yellow and orange paper for the hands.  The size of my wreath took 10 hands.  I glued them to the wreath with the wrist part in and the hands not touching.  


I traced some felt leaves that I had and cut out 6 of them, 3 brown and 3 red.

I glued the leaves around the wrists of the hands to cover the edges.  And I have a beautiful fall wreath on my door!
