You’ll need:

1 Bottle of Modge-Podge   

1 Box of Lucky Charms

1 Paint Brush

1 Medium-Sized Styrofoam Wreath

1 Yard Green Ribbon

Directions:

Step One: Separate

It may seem tedious, but have the kids empty the box of cereal and separate the colored marshmallows from the cereal into two separate bowls. This will make designing your wreath easier.

Step Two: The Base

Take the styrofoam wreath and paint a small section of it with a thin layer of Modge-Podge. Have the kids gently arrange and press the dry cereal onto that section until filled in.

Step Three: Seal

Once you have the dry cereal in place, seal it by placing a thin layer of Modge-Podge and allow it to dry.

Step Four: Apply Charms

Add color by painting sections of the wreath with Modge-Podge and applying the “charms” as you see fit. Once you are finished decorating with charms, apply another layer of Modge-Podge  to seal and allow to dry completely.

Step Five: Add Bling

Twirl green ribbon around the dried wreath or make a large green bow to place at the bottom center. Secure with Modge-Podge and allow ample drying time.
