Making a Recycled Christmas Wrapping Paper Wreath

This kids' project uses a paper plate, Christmas wrapping paper, decorations from Christmas cards, and Christmas ribbon. You can do this with fabric, but I wanted to use up some old wrapping paper that was taking up space in my craft supply area.


Total Time: 30 Minutes

Yield: 1 wreath


  • 1 paper plate
  • scissors
  • fabric glue
  • Christmas wrapping paper cut into strips
  • 1 or more Christmas cards with shiny decorations on them to cut out for decorating the wreath
  • ribbon


  1. Cut the center out of paper plate, making a wreath form.
  2. Take wrapping paper strips and glue (or tape) them around the wreath.
  3. Curl two long strips and glue them to the bottom of the wreath.
  4. Cut out the pretty parts of Christmas cards and glue them on your wreath. Tie Christmas ribbon unto the wreath and wrap around completely. Tie ends together. Put a large Christmas card decoration on the top of the wreath.
  5. Hang your finished wreath up on hook on the wall or use as decoration on a present.
