Halloween has passed, and with Thanksgiving on the horizon, I’m trying to squeeze in all of our final fall crafts of the season. I made this paper plate pumpkin wreath with my 1.5 year-old last week. There is something about little handprints that just make my heart happy. She painted the paper plate orange all by herself. As you can see, there are some missing spots, but I honestly think that just gives it character!
– 2 paper plates
– Paint: orange, brown, green
– Glue stick
– Have your child paint one paper plate orange.
– On a separate paper plate, press down your child’s painted (green) hand. On that same paper plate, paint the brown stem.
– Allow everything to dry.
– Cut out the center of the paper plate. You can poke a hole with your scissors then cut around the inside.
– Cut out the handprint and the stem.
– Glue down.
– Allow to dry, then hang to display!
You can find more of our fall crafts here, including tons of pumpkin, leaf, and apple ideas (and more!). We love this time of year and it’s definitely reflected in the sheer number of arts and crafts we do during the season. Anyway, I hope you get a chance to do this one with your child. It would make a great keepsake!
