A classic school craft takes a modern twist this holiday season with this family centered handprint wreath.

It's a fantastic project to do together on a snowy afternoon and it can decorate your home all season long.

WHAT YOU NEED

• Construction paper and scrapbook paper in various shades and patterns of green

• One piece of red construction paper

• Scissors

• Poster board

• Large round plate

• Smaller round plate or bowl

• School glue or decoupage glue

• Pencil

• Red ribbon

HOW YOU DO IT

1. Trace the large plate onto the poster board. Trace the smaller plate or bowl inside of the larger circle. Cut out both circles to make a wreath base. (Note: you may need to cut the width thinner depending on the size of the hands).

2. Trace each family member's hand onto the excess poster board. You will use these as templates.

3. Trace the hand templates onto various shades and patterns of green construction paper. You will need anywhere from 15 to 25 handprints, depending on the size of your wreath.

4. Use a liquid glue to glue the handprints all around the wreath base, varying the colors, patterns, and hand sizes of your family.

5. Cut out 1-inch circles from the red construction paper. Glue in groupings of three around your wreath. Let dry completely.

6. Tie a red ribbon around the top of the wreath and hang up for the holiday!
