Children will learn how to fold paper to create what we affectionately call ‘Holly Hearts’ – a great basis for also creating paper flowers.

For our paper plate Christmas wreath, the holly hearts work beautifully and are super easy for kids to make themselves, which is ideal if you’re looking for a simple Christmas craft to try at home or within the classroom.

Paint the Paper Plate Green

Step 1: Start by painting a paper plate green.

Leave the paper plate to dry before moving on to the next step.

Cut out the Centre

Step 2: Cut out the centre of the paper plate. If the children are cutting out the centres themselves, I recommend drawing a cross in the centre of the plate. Cut along each line and fold the segments up to make more room for cutting and to make the ‘removal area’ easier to identify for the child.

Create Green Paper Holly Hearts

Step 3: Cut two shades of green construction paper into strips (approx 2cm wide). You will need a around 7 strips of each colour (maybe more or less depending on the size of your paper plate and strips)

Step 5: We are now going to transform these strips into ‘holly hearts’.

Align the bottoms of the strips at a 90′ angle and secure with glue.

Fold one strip of paper over to join the layered paper join and create a loop.

Secure with glue.
