Materials

  • Polystyrene wreath form
  • Colorful wide ribbon
  • Straight pins (PARENTS ONLY) or fabric glue
  • Printable Dora Flower Images
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Wire or nail for hanging
Tip: The bigger the wreath form you choose, the more flower cutouts you'd need to cover it up. The wreath size we picked, as seen in the photo, is 12 inches in diameter.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cover up the inside and outside of the wreath form with a piece of wide ribbon. Use either straight pins (parents only) or fabric glue to secure it in place.

  2. Step 2

    Print <u><a href="dora-paper-flower-shapes.jhtml"> Dora Flower Images</a></u> on cardstock. Have your child pick her favorite flower design and cut them out (including leaf shapes).

  3. Step 3

    Spread out all flower and leaf shapes and let your child arrange them on top of the polystyrene wreath form. If possible, try work out a pattern for her to follow, e.g., 2 flowers and 1 leaf followed by 1 flower and 1 leaf.

  4. Step 4

    Once the circle of flowers is formed, your preschooler can begin to glue the paper image cutouts, one after another, to the top of the polystyrene ring. Apply fabric glue to the back of the paper cutouts in the center before placing them down. Let dry.

  5. Step 5

    Hang it up!

  6. Alternative: Make a fancy Dora wreath with faux flowers

    To make a fancier Dora wreath, replace the paper flower cutouts with faux flowers to decorate the wreath form. Click here for instructions for making a <b><u><a href="dora-spring-flower-wreath.jhtml"> Dora Spring Flower Wreath</a></u></b>.
