​How To Make A Patriotic Wreath Craft

Using scissors cut out the center of your paper plate.

A great way to get this done is to fold your paper plate in half to make cutting out the inner part of the plate easy.

Depending on the age of your child, you’ll have to give them a hand cutting out the middle of the paper plate.

Paint the outside of the paper plate using red and blue paint. We went with blue and red stripes on one of our wreaths and red and blue wreath for the other.

While your painted paper plates are drying, color your star template.

Use patriotic colors like red, blue and white to create your own star shapes.

You can even use our star template to trace red and blue construction paper stars if you want.

Using scissors, cut out each of the colored stars.

Especially young children may need some assistance cutting out their colored stars.
