Dollar Tree had 32 packs of paper doily leaves. The packet we picked was green. There were other colors, too. Colors usually vary by store.
Regardless, this is a very inexpensive craft. Two dollars, total, plus tax. One dollar for the leaves & one for the glue.
Using a marker that won’t smear or run, write one verse per leaf. Maintain a theme or you could go randomly. Maybe even go with seasonal verses such as Thanksgiving. Promises would also be nice. Thirty Two promised from God could benefit any family. Pick one Scripture each day to turn into a prayer. Turn the Scripture into praise or a prayer request. Incorporate it into devotions.
If whole Scriptures seem too much on your wreath, pick prayer requests. As each request is fulfilled, put a smiley face on the leaf. Another thought would be to turn the wreath into a prayer circle. Write down the name of someone in need. Pray over it daily.
For Thanksgiving, a lot of people do the handprint turkeys. With the same basic idea, use the handprints to make a wreath shape & write things that you’re thankful for on it this year.
Whichever way you choose for the writing part is great. Just glue each leaf, overlapping like roof shingles, but make sure you don’t cover any words. Obviously, younger hands will need more help. Make one for each member of the family. Everyone could use Scriptures meaningful to them.
Nursing home patients would appreciate a Scripture wreath in their window. Sunday school classes or daycares could certainly utilize this activity. Easy clean-up with little mess is a bonus.
Bible research will certainly benefit all involved. Finding or rediscovering favorite verses is uplifting. Kids will become even more familiar with The Word.
If time is an issue, try a concordance or theme devotional. Both may help with theme or specific verses. Your main point is to have a visual reminder of God’s Word. Wreaths can be hung anywhere & kids are more into staring at things they’ve created. Perhaps it’ll even become a tradition. Make one each holiday or once a year, especially if you go with requests.
