Mother’s Day Craft Idea: How to Make a Pretzel Wreath

Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I believe the best gifts are handmade! Especially when they are made by kids! That is why I like to work with my kids at every holiday to create something completely unique! For this Mother’s Day craft I decided to take things that many of us already have around the house and make something fabulous!

Make a Pretzel Wreath for Mother’s Day

Supplies:

  • Elmer’s Display Board
  • Elmer’s Glue All
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • Box Cutter or other sharp knife/sizzors
  • Assortment of crafts for decorating (sequins, pompoms, glitter, etc.)
  • Pretzels (We used Mini Pretzel Twists)

Creating the Pretzel Wreath

Step 1. Cut circles of various sizes out of the Elmer’s Display Board

Step 4. Place Pretzels one at a time along the edges of the circle. Place them so that the top portion of the pretzel is past the circle edge. Place them side by side.

  1. Hi, came by for the blog hop and I am already following you thru GFC, so today I followed on Facebook and Twitter. I would be so grateful if you could stop by and see if you are following me. When I first started my blog there was a mixup and the wrong link was used on my Facebook so I lost all those people who liked me in the beginning as Website Grader says I have zero fans. I would greatly appreciate a follow on Facebook the most. Thanks for your help!
