Handprint Wreath Banner
Half yard of white or cream linen, green and red paint, small paintbrush, glue, wooden dowel, ribbon
Begin by making the banner from a half-yard square of white or cream fabric. Fold over the top edge to make a small dowel rod pocket and glue down the long edge. Now you're ready for your helper! Apply green paint to your child's hand and make handprints in a circle, varying the angle of the hand, to make a wreath shape. Then, using red paint, make a few berry clusters around the wreath. After the paint dries, thread a dowel through the pocket you made at the top. Attach a ribbon on each end of the dowel to use as a hanger. This is a sweet keepsake that you and your child will treasure pulling out of the holiday box each year.
