Simple Bubble Wrap Holly Wreath Decorations

Christmas wreaths are not just for your front door. They look great indoors as well. Especially when your own kids have made them. Our Simple Bubble Wrap Holly Wreaths are also a great way to re-use all of that bubble wrap arriving with your Christmas shopping.

Time is ticking on now and our Christmas preparations are in full swing. We enjoyed a family adventure up into the Wicklow Mountains yesterday, to pick our own Christmas Tree. We warmed up with hot chocolate and bacon butties when we got back and then got stuck straight into decorating it together as a family.

After finishing off our Christmas tree decorating, we tackled writing a few more of our Christmas cards to send to family and friends. Have you written all of yours yet? We like to make the extra effort for our family over in the UK who we don’t get to see as often as we like, so the kids like to draw a special picture or make a little Christmas Decoration to go along with their card.  One of the decorations we made to go inside our cards this year, is a Bubble Wrap Holly Wreath.

Materials needed:

Ahead of the activity:

Cut out the centre of the paper plate to form your wreath template.

Secure a piece of bubble wrap over two TP rolls (an elastic band or hair bobble works great for this)

Pour red and green paint onto a plate.

Have wipes on standby!

Method:

Stamp the TP Roll Bubble Wrap Stamps all over the wreath template until it is completely covered.

Dip a finger into the red paint and finger paint red berries all over your holly wreath.

Leave to dry and then pop it into a parcel to a loved on or hang it up at home.
