Hi Friends! SO happy to be back this month to share a new printable with you. I’m Kiki from Kiki and Company and I CANNOT believe school is starting back up soon. Today I have a fun project that would be a perfect sweet gift for your child’s new teacher or even just a fun piece of decor to have around your home to pump your kiddos up for the beginning of school!
How cute is this little wreath?! It is really fun to put together (and really easy too!)

-wreath form (you could even use cardboard for this!)
- To begin, first print and cut out the leaves you want to make your wreath. There are 3 patterns, 1 solid and 1 stripe and 1 dot in red, making 3 different leaves you can use on your wreath. It is so fun to think of all the possibilities you could end up with. Use one color/pattern or use all 3…it is totally up to you!
- Second, after cutting out your leaves, fold the bottom half of each leaf…this will give it dimension as you start gluing. Next, prepare your wreath form by wrapping it in fabric. I just used hot glue at each of the ends to secure it to the form
- Then, start glueing. This is where your wreath will truly become yours! Use all one color/pattern, mix and match, the choice is yours! Overlap each line of leaves until you have completed the wreath. I started mine by gluing 4-5 in a straight line, but found as I kept going, it worked great when everything wasn’t perfectly lined up! When you glue, just add a dab of glue to the bottom of the leaf (where it is folded) and add. This makes it easy at the end when you are joining the leaves where you are ending and where you started. You can tuck a few extra leaves wherever you feel like you need more. This really is a wreath that you can make all your own. Isn’t it so fun?!
4. Once your wreath body is done, glue on the stem and leaves how you like and you are finished!
This is a fun activity to do alone or with friends. Once your get those leaves cut out, the wreath comes together really quickly.
