Okay, so I made the wreath in a couple colors. This is a super easy project and I would imagine kids would really enjoy it.
All you need is sturdy paper (pick a fun color/pattern), scissors, a ruler, glue of your choice, a pen or pencil, and ribbon. I paper cutter would come in super handy to cut all the strips, but it's not a necessity.
You'll need to cut 2x11" strips. If your paper is colored on both sides you'll cut anywhere from 10-12 strips. If it's not double sided paper (white on the back) you'll need to cut twice as many and glue two together so that the white part is covered. The heavier the paper, the better. Think card stock.

You can then add ribbon as a hanger. You don't have to do a big bow like I did. If you want to though, check out this tutorial. She does it slightly different than I do (I learned how in a floral class), but you'll get a similar result.
There you have it! I had all the supplies on hand so this didn't cost me anything extra. If you're purchasing supplies, I would imagine this will cost you less than $5.
