Super Simple Christmas Wreath Craft


The idea behind these DIY Christmas Ornament is to give the kids a range of activities to keep them happy and busy, whilst you get on with the last minute Christmas preparations.  So today, I would love to share these super cute and yet very simple Christmas Wreaths with you.

Easy Pipe Cleaner Wreath for Preschoolers

A great easy holiday craft for toddlers and preschoolers!

They are easy and colourful and would make great little Christmas tree decorations, additions to Christmas presents, fix to the front of a card for Christmas card making or just because. Oh and if you children decide to wear them as bracelets,  well then that is ok too. SO long as everyone is happy!

Educational benefits:

Not only are these pony bead wreaths super easy to make, but they also have some lovely educational benefits:

  • Your child can work on their fine motor skills
  • This is great for basic squencing skills. Maybe get your child to follow a pattern (if they wish!)
  • Great for mindfulness time and concentration
  • A seasonal activity for the Christmas holiday Season

Also feature in our Christmas Ornaments ebook:


These cute little Christmas Wearths are also included in our practical, easy to download and print out Christmas Ornament Book. Each craft is shared on one page – making the perfect worksheet print outs. Lovely to have them all in one place too!

DIY Christmas Wreath for Preschoolers – materials

  •  1 Pipe cleaner per wreath (green pipe cleaners, white or red pipe cleaners are nice too!),
  • approx. 14-18 plastic pony beads (though any beads will do),
  • optional – a ribbon for hanging

Messiness rank: 1 out of 5 (the only disaster I can envisage is that the beads may spill on the floor)

Entertainment factor: anything from 10-30minutes depending on child and number of beads and your child’s ability to concentrate/ enjoyment of doing quiet activities

DIY Christmas Wreath for Preschoolers – How To

This really is the simplest of holiday tutorials 🙂

1)      Take a long piece of pipe cleaner. We chose a green one. And start threading your pony beads from one end of the pipe cleaner. AS the pipe cleaners are fuzzy and “thick”, your beads should (!) not fall off accidentally. Glitter pony beads would be super cute too!

2)      When you have enough beads on your pipe cleaner, bend your pipe cleaner up and arrange all your beads. So you have two longer pieces of clear pipe cleaner. Loop through each other.

3)      Add a little twist to secure

4)      And then form a bow or loop and twist in place!

Kids will love this simple pipe cleaner wreath

All done. You could add a little jingle bell hanging from the bow too! You can now add a ribbon, baker’s twine or ornament hook to hang your creation up.

We also like adding little ornaments to packets of home made biscuits as sweet little gifts – take a peak at these homemade Christmas cookies here.. or just use these to decorate “normal” presents.

Lovely! Hope you liked this simple Christmas craft ideal for preschoolers and young children (well, not the really little ones that like eating beads of course).

Now you have made your first pipe cleaner ornament.. why not give our pipe cleaner snowflakes a go too? Your kiddo will love these!
