This is a cute afternoon craft you can do with your kids. Enjoy!


  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Glue
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
  • Thick card stock for wreath form


To start, cut out a circular form from heavy card stock. I recommend buying picture matting material and cutting out from there. You can use a paper plate as your circular template.
In order to cut the most hand-shapes at once, stack your construction paper, then trace your child’s hand several times on the top sheet. This way, when you start to cut, you will get several pieces rather than cutting each individually.

Take your cutout hands and place them around the circular template to see how everything will fit.

Using a hole punch, punch a hole through the first hand and circular form.
Tie a knot at the end of your ribbon of choice and slide through the first hole. Tape down the remaining ribbon on the back.

Repeat this process with the rest of your hands, looping the ribbon over and under each hole punch. Glue down any hands that may not feel secure.

When you have placed all of your hand cutouts around the wreath, punch a hole in the top of the wreath form only (not the hand), and tie a ribbon for hanging.

Showcase your kids’ “handy” work anywhere in your home!
