Mitten Wreath Craft Kit
These wreaths are going to be used this holiday season as wreaths on the teacher's doors in our hall. They are so cute. They are more impressive in person than the pictures show.

I cut the center out of a paper plate and used the ring as a frame on which we attached the mittens. Worked great. Had to use tacky glue to assemble the mittens.

This craft was a DISASTER! I ran a family craft night at my elementary school and assigned this craft to the fourth graders. Craft glue, glue stick or elemer's glue DID NOT work. Mittens did not adhere to each other. We even tried making a frame. In the end, we stapled the mittens on- not fun with 60 projects and they looked awful. I SURE DO HOPE O.T. Credits us!

really cute, but...
I bought this for a classroom project for our Holiday Party. I loved the wreath because it was so cute. I thought that it would have some kind of template for the kids to glue the mittens to, but it does not. When they were finished (which took 2nd graders a very long time), the wreaths were very flimsy and did not look good. So, I quickly thought about what to do and I glued popsicle sticks around the circle on the back. When they were completely finished they were very cute. I loved them and wish to do them again, but they were very time consuming. But if you have the time and patience-go for it!

Punched out the shapes and placed all parts in individual bags before children came. Thought there would be a circle shape to glue mittens to. Since there was none, I traced a pre-made mitten wreath on poster board that children used as a template to place and glue their mitten together. We glued mittens to form the wreath and then decorated the mittens. Used a lot of glue dots. Bought different glitter to decorate larger snowflakes. The finished project was rather flimsy and the mitten began to droop so placed magnets on the back of some mittens. Hope families have metal doors.

This is a nice group project. One wreath per person would take a long time. A few mittens per person is more realistic. Then I glued the mittens together. I took the Brownies to a nursing home and we made 4 wreaths to leave for their hall. You do want to separate the pieces in advance.

It looks even better here than it did in the catalog, and was lots of fun to assemble.

Lots of time
I thought this would have the wreath part to glue the mittens on to but it was very difficult to make and took way more time than expected. I did it with 2nd graders and it took about 20 plus minutes and ton of glue dots!

Cute Project for a Class
This project worked well with fourth and sixth graders.

Takes a lot of time to complete. Couldn't make 12 complete wreaths because there were pieces missing and had to take from another pack. Some pieces were torn or missing. Very nice when done.
