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 your Maurice the moose wreath craft ... so I did some cut and paste et voilĂ  :  a Christmas Pikachu wreath template and a Christmas Blastoise wreath template.  I'm sending you copies (color templates, b&w templates, GIF)."


  • a printer, 

  • a piece of paper... I always prefer to use a heavy paper (like construction paper), but it isn't necessary.

  • some crayons, paint, markers or pencil crayons, 

  • scissors, 

  • ribbon, string or wool,

  • glue,

  • something hard as a base, like cardboard, a margarine container lid or a frozen juice can lid.

Optional materials: 

  • paint, 

  • Christmas wrapping paper, 

  • Christmas stickers.


  • 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).

  • Close the template window after printing to return to this screen. 

  • Set page margins to zero if you have trouble fitting the template on one page (FILE, PAGE SETUP or FILE, PRINTER SETUP in most browsers).
