Craft Project: Recycled Tiny Wreaths

Rings from twist off lids like those on salad dressing jars can be covered in green pipe cleaners with a tiny bow on top to make Christmas tree ornaments.

Approximate Time: Depends on age of child


  • Plastic ring from a twist off lid
  • Fuzzy green pipe cleaner
  • Tiny red bow, either purchased or hand tied from scrap of ribbon


Completely cover the plastic ring by winding the pipe cleaner around and around it. Glue a tiny bow to the place where the ends of the pipe cleaner meet.

These are cute. I will have to make some with my daughter and the neighbor kids, and share the idea with her art teacher. Kids will have fun making these. Thanks for sharing.
