Beaded Pipe Cleaner Mini Wreaths
Whether to decorate grandma & grandpa's presents for the holidays or decorate your tree - these adorable mini wreaths will add some kid fun to your holiday.
How We Did It
Start with your materials. We used these sparkly pipe cleaners for these wreaths to add a little glittery fun to them.
For this activity, I created a wreath first so V could see the final project and what we were striving for. She started for all the gold beads first.
Using a pipe cleaner, thread 15-19 beads onto the pipe cleaner. Our gold pony beads were a little smaller than the standard ones, so the gold required 19 & the standard pony beads required 15.
Push the beads to the center of the pipe cleaner, leaving the ends bead-free. We used this as a learning moment as V & I counted the beads too.
Next, depending on your child's age, this may be a mom step. Twist the pipe cleaner together at each bead end creating a circle. Next, thread a jingle bell onto each pipe cleaner stem.
Next, bend each stem down creating a loop to look like a bow. Then, cross each stem over to the opposite side and twist to secure the bow and beads.
Now, flip it over, and voila, a completed mini wreath.
