Wreath - Share A Smile

 Paper Plates, Paint, Pom-Poms and Blobs of Glue = Lots of Smiles

We made bunches of these and took them down to the hospital to decorate the rooms of patients that would be staying over the holidays.

Ever wonder why we decorate with holly wreaths for Christmas? I did!

The Legend of the Holly Wreath
A young orphan boy was living with the shepherds when the herald angels appeared announcing the glad tidings of Christ's birth. On the way to Bethlehem, the child wove a crown of holly branches for the newborn king. But when he lay it before Jesus, the crown looked so unworthy that the little shepherd became ashamed of his gift and began to cry. Then the Christ Child reached out, touched the crown, caused its leaves to sparkle shiny and green, and turned the orphan's tears into scarlet berries.


  1. The wreath looks great, what a fun project and what makes it even better is that you made them to decorate the Hospital. I am sure all the patients there truly appreciate this. Thanks so much for sharing on We Made That.

  3. My little boy wants to paint and I think this would be a perfect activity for him. Thanks for sharing.
