Maggie's Fall Wreath

 Maggie and Granny enjoy creating crafts together!
 The best part of this project for Maggie was drawing around her hand multiple times!!!
 The small addition of glitter was also a hit!
 We started with some simple supplies...
paper plate
colored paper
crepe paper 

Cut a circle in the paper plate (doubled) and then around the outer edge of plate, glue on some green crepe paper.
Draw around hand on multiple colors of scrapbook paper and cut out. 
Glue hands on plate.
Paint a bit of glue in several spots and sprinkle with glitter.
Paper punch a hole in the top and thread orange ribbon through and hang!
