The kiddo decided that she needed a mini wreath, so we made this popsicle stick wreath craft for kids. Simple, cute and made with little felt flowers that are just too darling.
Popsicle Stick Wreath Craft for Kids
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we believe that learning happens pretty organically for us lately. So, when the kiddo asks to make something with popsicle sticks and informs me that she needs a mini-wreath, I let her lead the way!
Honestly, I just gave her little pointers and tips–and she was off. It was like she’d been making little rolled flowers forever, which she has, but that’s beside the point. LOL! If you’re ready to make a mini-wreath with craft sticks, let’s get started.

Tips to Make a MINI WREATH KIDS CRAFT
- If you haven’t guessed, this is a kid-led craft that’s all for them. My kiddo grabbed her craft sticks and just got to making. For a smaller kiddo, you can have them follow the photos and instructions with your help.
- You do not have to add the glitter edging on the leaves–that was all my kiddo wanting to add some flair.
- Use the thinner craft felt for your roses. The thicker felt is fun and you can make a lot of things with it, but with little hands, the thinner stuff is probably a better choice in this situation.
- Do not try to weave the craft sticks. The kiddo tried that first (I think that’s what she really wanted), but the craft sticks just don’t have enough give. You just have to lay them across each other and glue them there. Don’t try to get all weavey.
