This advent wreath is made from a 10" cardboard cake platter with a scalloped edge, like these from Wilton. You could probably also use a circle of cardboard cut out of a leftover pizza box or something, but the scalloped edge is nice. Looks like these were spray-painted gold. This becomes the base of the wreath.
Around the rim of this gold circle base, are holly leaves and berries cut out from construction paper. This one has alternating light and dark green leaves. The kids could cut these out and glue them on themselves.
My favorite part, is how the candles are lit!
You take a square of yellow tissue paper,
and stuff it down inside each "candle" tube, so that it is hidden from view.
Ooh! And now I have a pair of these on display, because my middle child moved up to the class that makes these and brought his home today : )
Slightly different, this one is on a green-painted heavy paper plate. And the holly "berries" are little balls of red tissue paper! I love it!
