We made paper wreaths to practice cutting skills and to celebrate Christmas! (If you can use other colors if there are students that don’t celebrate Christmas)

How easy and fun is it!
Check out the step by step pictures and directions!
1st– Fold a piece of 9X12 green construction paper in half…hot dog fold (down vertical middle)!
2nd-Fold it again…hot dog style.
3rd-Open…it should now be folded in half with folded edge pointed towards belly. The open edge is away from the body and there is a folded line running horizontally across the paper.
4th– Cut straight lines from the folded paper edge to the folded middle line. Be sure to cut right to the middle line! “Touch the middle line!”
5th– Keep cutting equal size lines! Thumb up, elbow in!
6th-Keep going until the end!
8th-Fold 2 outer edges to touch in the middle.
Now the tricky part of the Christmas Wreath!
9th-Fold into a triangular prism.
10th– Staple edges!
