Step 2

With a pair of scissors, cut the drawings and set aside.


Step 3

When all hand shapes are cut, arrange it in a circle as if the hands are reaching outwards. Make sure the colors are alternately placed. Glue the outer side so it touches the side of the other hand. Continue doing this until you create a circle that resembles a wreath.
