At the weekend, my son decided that he wanted to make a Christmas wreath, and I thought that this was a great idea.
We then ventured out to buy the materials we needed to make the wreath. My son was deciding on which wreath to buy. He concluded to buy a green artificial one.
My son then let his inspiration guide him as he gazed at the selection of craft material. Next, he placed a packet of dried orange slices, apple slices, pine cones and cinnamon sticks into the basket. (what a fruity combination)
He followed this by wanting a red berry and pine pick as the main feature.
All that was left to get was a hot glue gun, which I already had.
Back at home, and it was craft time. I carefully showed my son how to use the glue gun (health and safety).
Next, he evenly distributed the orange and apple slices, cinnamon sticks and pine cones all around.
I could tell that he was so pleased with the outcome.
Here is the finished design:
The Christmas wreath has an alluring aroma to it, which I suppose is a bonus when you have a sensory seeking child.
Firstly, I attended my local carers’ Christmas craft workshop (Carers in Bedfordshire) to create a seasonal decoration.
Secondly, I made a black and white Christmas cracker from a card template provided followed by folding, using glue and decorating it. Additionally, I bedazzled my cracker with white adhesive pearls and added a hint of gold for colour. Lastly, I finished the elegant design off with some gold ribbon.
