American Flag Cup Wreath

Posted by Krystal Schoenbauer on

Here is a fun and super easy craft for you and your child to do this Memorial Day!

 

Materials:

  • Red, white and blue paper cups (we used 10 blue, 12 red and 10 white)
  • Glue gun and glue
  • A ribbon for hanging
  • A ruler (optional)

 

Instructions

1. Start by stacking the cups. Space them out enough—an inch or two, depending on the size of cup you chose—that the stack can be angled into a circular shape once it's glued together. We used a ruler for this. 

2. Glue the cups together by putting dabs of glue about halfway down the outside of each cup, below the lip of the cup it's stacked into. You only have to put glue on one side, because the other side won't be touching other cups. Once your stack is long enough, you can start angling the cups into a circular shape.

3. After you complete your circle, let it dry. Then tie your ribbon around any part of the wreath and hang it from your door or window.
