PAPER PLATE WREATHS FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Updated: Jul 28, 2021





I had two choices after taking down the Valentine’s Day door decor…

  1. Go to Michaels and buy a really expensive (but really beautiful!!!) wreath for Spring. (To be honest, this still MIGHT happen…)

  2. Dream of Michaels (ha!) and let the girls create some really beautiful St. Patrick’s Day wreaths with materials we already have at home

I went with the latter and I am so thrilled I did! These St. Patrick’s Day wreaths – made by the girls – brighten up the front door and make the neighbours smile as they pass by.





WHAT YOU NEED:

  • washable paint (in rainbow colours)

  • paintbrushes

  • paper plate

  • scissors

  • white glue

  • tape

  • St. Patrick’s Day cut-outs/decor items

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Using scissors, cut out the inner circle of the paper plate. I folded each one in half to do this.

  2. Set out paint colours and allow artists to paint, as inspired to do so

  3. Once dry, embellish each wreath with cut-outs (e.g. shamrocks, pots of gold, etc.). We used white glue for this!

  4. Add a handle to your wreath so you may display it. We used some fun shamrock garland, but I think a sparkly green or gold pipe cleaner would be fun too! We taped this on the backside to secure it in place

  5. Display your wreath during the month of March!

ACTIVITY EXTENSION:

  • Gift your wreath to a friend, family member, teacher, or local business

CONNECTION STARTERS:

  • Tell me about a time you felt lucky!

  • When might we say “good luck” to a friend?

  • When was the last time you saw a rainbow? What did you do when you spotted it?!

  • What other activities can we do to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year?

  • What should we eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner on St. Patricks’ Day?

THINGS TO CELEBRATE & ENCOURAGE:

  • showing patience while the paint dries

  • helping to clean up

  • sharing materials

  • using the PERFECT amount of white glue (we ALWAYS celebrate this one because often times, the girls go overboard!)

  • making creative decisions independently and with confidence

Sending love and luck to all of our artist pals!


Happy connecting, sweet friends!


XOXO, Lindsay
