Advent Wreath Art Project for Wall or Bulletin Board
Create an Advent Wreath Art Project for Wall or Bulletin Board.
This Advent wreath project reminds kids of the hope, peace, joy, and love that the Nativity of Our Lord brings.
First, print out the template pieces and cut them apart—leaves, candles, and flames. Trace the template onto large green sheets of finger paintings or green construction paper. Draw on the veins using glitter glue or a fat tip marker. Arrange and staple leaves on a bulletin board in the shape of a wreath. Have kids color the candle pieces as marked in the instructions and staple them on the board. (Some may want to use felt strips instead of paper candles.) Place a pre-made bow or two on the bottom of the wreath. Color the flames pieces yellow and staple one onto the wreath each week. Teachers could also add a piece of paper each week as pictured above to solidify the meaning of the candles. Voila, a simple Advent wreath.
**If finger painting seems too daunting for the classroom, keep it simple. You could complete this project in an hour or so if you used colored construction paper or even white paper using crayons.
This wreath could be made of any size; just print out as many leaf pieces as needed. Teachers could also glue the pieces onto a poster board as an alternative to a bulletin board.
The main thing is to get a wreath of some kind up to help tell and explain to your students about the hope, peace, joy, and love of the arrival of our Lord that we celebrate on the 25th of December.
