    Start with your materials. We used these sparkly pipe cleaners for these wreaths to add a little glittery fun to them.

  • Step 2

    For this activity, I created a wreath first so V could see the final project and what we were striving for. She started for all the gold beads first.

  • Step 3

    Using a pipe cleaner, thread 15-19 beads onto the pipe cleaner. Our gold pony beads were a little smaller than the standard ones, so the gold required 19 & the standard pony beads required 15.

  • Step 4

    Push the beads to the center of the pipe cleaner, leaving the ends bead-free. We used this as a learning moment as V & I counted the beads too.

  • Step 5

    Next, depending on your child's age, this may be a mom step. Twist the pipe cleaner together at each bead end creating a circle. Next, thread a jingle bell onto each pipe cleaner stem.

  • Step 6

    Next, bend each stem down creating a loop to look like a bow. Then, cross each stem over to the opposite side and twist to secure the bow and beads.
