This is an easy craft you can do with your kids!

  • Rice
  • Glue
  • Pasta (macaroni and bowtie)
  • Red and green food coloring
  • Small round wood peg/block or wine cork
  • Paperclip


Mix dried rice with green food coloring. Let dry. In a paper bowl, add green rice and white school glue. Mix with hands until it combines and then mold into a ball and flatten into a circle with your hands. Using a round wooden peg/block (or a wine cork) on parchment paper, punch a hole in the middle and remove.
In another bowl, place dried pasta (bowtie and macaroni work best) and color them red and green. Squeeze glue from a plastic squeeze bottle to glue on pasta to decorate your wreath. When the wreath is still wet, insert a paperclip halfway in at the top to act as a hook. When the wreath is dry, you can take an ornament hook and loop it through the paperclip to hang the wreath on your tree.

What kind of ornaments have you made for your tree this year?
