Photograph: a wreath


YOU WILL NEED

  • A grapevine wreath (available at craft stores)
  • Real or artificial fall leaves
  • Acorns
  • Berries
  • Wide ribbon
  • Craft glue
  • Puffy paint


HERE'S HOW

Wrap the ribbon around the wreath as shown, and knot in place. Tuck the stems of the leaves, acorns, and berries into the wreath. When you are happy with the arrangement, glue everything in place. Write holiday messages on the ribbon with puffy paint.

SUGGESTION

Spread holiday cheer at a senior living facility. Donate homemade wreaths to a residence for seniors, then volunteer to help decorate for the holidays.
