Christmas Popcorn Wreath

12.24.10

Today I spent some time with the little ones building a popcorn wreath.  It was fun project but my little helpers ate more of the popcorn then they did actually placing the popcorn onto the wreath.  They soon decided playing with their toys was a little more interesting.  So while they played I continued with the wreath.  Of course, I got an occassional visit from the little ones as they grabbed a handful of poporn and then continued playing with their toys.  In the end, it was a fun little project and now we have a fun wreath hanging inside the house just in time for Christmas. 

Here is what you’ll need:

1.) A large piece of cardboard.  I broke down a cardboard box and used that to draw the outer circle for the wreath.

2.) Popped popcorn (2 bags microwave popcorn)

3.) Hot glue gun and glue sticks

4.) Ribbon (in color of choice)

Now here are the steps to create your own popcorn wreath:

5.) Start applying popcorn onto cardboard wreath using a hot glue gun.  I did a combo of things.  I applied glue directly to the card board and then stuck the popcorns onto the glue and I also applied glue to individual popcorn’s and then applied to wreath.  I actually prefer placing the glue directly onto the popcorn and then placing. 

6.) After all the popcorn is applied to the wreath wrap ribbon around the top of the wreath gluing the end to the back of the wreath.  Then wrap the ribbon around the front of wreath and up around to the back and gluing again at the top.  Make sure to allow enough length to the ribbon so you can hang on door.

7.) Then cut another long piece of ribbon and tie around the ribbon on the front to make a bow.

And now you have a fun Christmas Popcorn Wreath.  And a fun afternoon activity to do next Christmas. 

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!!!
