POKEMON CHRISTMAS WREATHS
Manon is runs an after school computer class and is the
webmaster of a cool
French language pokemon site. They have links to and (better
yet) photos of
nearly every pokemon craft on the internet (including mine), so even
if you don't speak french, it's still worth a peek! (They also have
a good list of
pokemon coloring pages!)
Manon and the kids also
designed these wreaths for us! Here's a blurb from her email:
"The children wanted Pokemon ornaments for the Christmas tree, something
they can print at school and do at home or in class. I really like
Maurice the moose wreath craft ... so I did some cut and paste et voilą

construction paper), but it isn't necessary.
some crayons, paint, markers or pencil crayons,
ribbon, string or wool,
something hard as a base, like cardboard, a margarine container
lid or a frozen juice can lid.
Print out the template of choice.
Color (where appropriate) and cut out the template pieces.
Cut a circle about the right size for the wreath (doesn't have
to be exact) from cardboard or a margarine container lid. Or just use a
frozen juice can lid.
Either paint the circle a Christmas color or cover with gift
wrap or colored paper.
Glue the wreath onto the circle.
Glue the pokemon into the center of the wreath and the hat
onto the pokemon.
Glue the Christmas message onto the top or bottom of the wreath.
Decorate further (as desired) with Christmas stickers.
Attach a string, ribbon or wool as a hanger so you can hang on
the Christmas tree (either by poking a hole in the base and threading the string
through or by attaching well with tape).
