We love to make homemade Christmas ornaments with the kids. I like to get started early on these, because the holidays get so busy and I want to make sure we continue this annual tradition.

We enjoy making Christmas ornaments, so much that we have teamed up with a group of bloggers to bring you 30 days of homemade kid ornaments. Each day a new blogger will feature an ornament that they have been working on for Christmas.
This simple Christmas Wreath Ornament for kids using mini clothespins is kicking off our 30 days.

I actually found these mini clothespins at Walmart with the Halloween stuff. You could easily make these by adding some Green Paint and Green Glitter to Mini Wood Clothespins. Adventures of Adam has an amazing video tutorial for a quick and simple way to get these painted. We have not tried it ourselves yet, but it looked much easier than painting/coloring each one. You could also buy Green Wooden Mini Clothespins and add Green Glitter.
- Wooden Mini Clothespins (Green)
- Fiberboard (I used a fruit snacks box)
- Green paint
- Red Ribbon
- Glitter (optional)
- Glue Gun
1. I used the lid from my Starbucks to trace the wreath on a piece of fiberboard. I cut out the traced circle and placed a few of the clothespins onto the circle and traced the inside circle. I took the clothespins off and cut out the center of the wreath.
2. Have your child paint the piece of fiberboard (your wreath) green and allow to dry.
3. If you need to paint and/or glitter your clothespins, do that now. Once your clothespins are ready, have your child place them around the wreath.
4. Cut a piece of ribbon for the bow and hook to attach the ornament to the tree. Use a glue gun to attack the bow to the front of the wreath. Make a loop from the other piece of ribbon and attach to the back of the wreath for a hook.
Your kids will have so much fun making these, they won’t notice that they are building their fine motor skills by squeezing open the clothespins.
