Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rangelar Very good for third grade
i am a room mom for a third grade class and we used this for a Christmas craft activity. this one was perfect for the age. very easy to do but challenging enough for the children. did not need anything other than what was included in the craft. some of the kids got bored with putting the green on the wreath the correct way and did it their own way, which worked fine. everything came INDIVIDUALLY packaged, which is not always the case with oriental trading products and so it made this project a home run. easy all the way around.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mamabart I liked the components of this product.
I bought this to use with my Church School class of 5th & 6th graders. I found it fairly easy for them to assemble and they had fun doing it. I also really liked the card that was contained in each kit that explained the advent wreath. The only problem was with the adhesive that was supposed to be on the cardboard for the kids to stick everything to - there was none, and even if there had been, I don't think it would have been sufficient for things to stick. So we used white glue, which worked fine. With a price of $7.98 for a dozen, and free shipping, I was fine with supplying my own glue for the project.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mich612 No Adhesive - Very Disappointed
I purchased a couple of kits to try these with my class, but since there was NO ADHESIVE they were sent home with the kids to make on their own using glue. The ADHESIVE is the only reason I purchased, for a quick, easy, clean craft project. I will not make the bulk purchase intended for next year. I am very disappointed, as this would have been a perfect craft for our Advent Festival. Also, some of the kits had splintering wooden candles, so make sure to order plenty of extras if you decide to order.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LuvKInder I love this craft and do it every year with my kinders. However, the quality has really gone downhill.
I love this craft and do it every year with my kinders. However, the quality has really gone downhill. The wreaths used to be self adhesive and that made the craft very easy. However, the last two years, the wreath had no adhesive and we had to glue everything. Although I love having my kids do this, I am very disappointed in the quality of this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Egglady22 Very poor quality
The cardboard rings had no adhesive on them. The wooden candles had holes in them and the paint was terrible. This is the first time I have been disappointed with a product from Oriental Trading.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrsSlaughter Fun and Easy
Super easy and fun for kindergarten age. I did not read carefully and thought I was getting a bigger one but instead got 6 small ones. But still cute and fun.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 4SSTeacher Too time consuming
No self adhesive was found as stated there would be. Children had to use glue to assemble this product.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AHUG Very Poor quality!
The tissue paper squares were so small the 9 and 10 year olds in my class could barely manage them onto the wreath. In addition the wreaths that were supposed to be sticky were NOT, and I was not prepared to have glue for this project as it clearly advertised in the description "no glue needed". The entire project was a bust and a waste of valuable Faith Formation Class time! Would not recommend!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Imateacher2 This was a disaster!
I ordered these for our second graders to make for Advent. We made them last year and they turned out great. This year the wreaths were not sticky when we peeled the paper off so the tissues and the candles would not adhere to the cardboard. The children were so disappointed so we made them anyway using glue. It took forever and it was a mess!
