DIY Patriotic Wreath

My son and I wanted to make something patriotic for the house this year and were happy to find the supplies we needed for this kids craft at the dollar store!

What you will need:

  • White paper plates
  • Crepe paper
  • Ribbon/string
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Red, & blue construction paper (white paper is optional)
  • Star stencil or cookie cutter

(Most dollar stores carry all of these items. I have a Dollar Tree here and that is where I purchased the crepe paper, ribbon, and white paper plates. They also carry glue, scissors, stencils, and construction paper, but I had those items already on hand.)

Step One: Cut out the center of the paper plate. Older kids should be able to do this; however, younger kids should defer to an adult for this step. Then tie a ribbon around the top of the plate for hanging. You can secure the ribbon/string to the plate with a dab of glue or small piece of tape.

Step Two: Have your child use the stencil/cookie cutter to trace stars onto the paper. Then, using scissors, cut the stars out. (For younger children I would suggest doing this beforehand and having the stars already cut out).

Step Three: Glue the stars onto the paper plate, focusing around the rim and then filling in around the rest of the plate. For the streamers, cut pieces of ribbon/string and glue to the bottom of the plate.

You can then hang your patriotic kids craft on a door, or even outside to give your home some patriotic decor!

New to the Coupon-Wizards?

Are you new to The Coupon Wizards? I’m a one woman blog, but I work tirelessly, day in and day out, to find you the best deals. Both couponing deals and online bargains! This isn’t Extreme Couponing, it’s Effective Couponing! There is a method to my madness as well. Not only do I find sales & deals for you, but in doing so, I find sales & deals for me too. It’s a win win 😉 Plus I’m able to teach others to do this at the same time, which I love!

I started following The Coupon Wizards after doing some research on the subject, with a little prodding from a friend, and coming across them on Facebook. I was hooked immediately & started to learn quickly. Mostly out of necessity, but also because I loved everything about it. The organization, the researching, the putting together of deals, but most of all, the savings! I was saving my family money to pay those bills & be able to eat all at the same time. This blog was a life saver; literally! In no time at all, I was a blogger myself on the site. My husband has since found a job, but this is now mine and I love, love, love it and hope you will to. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Until next time, shop happy 😊
