Easter crafts, wreath

I've been getting crafts together for my little cousins to do on Easter, and thought I would share.  I saw this Easter wreath and with a few changes, made it work.

My cousins are 8, 6 and two 5 year olds, so I pre-cut all the small pieces of paper with my handy dandy paper cutter.  Made my life so much easier! Instead of using glue, I opted for double sided tape, that way clean up will be much easier. To keep the clothespins in place, I cut a piece of foam core I had stashed away into a circle.  Working an x-acto blade again sure brought me back to college days!  To hide the plain white foam core, I wrapped colorful yarn around the circle and placed a handmade bow.  A little twine to hang it, and its a fun and fairly simple project for the youngsters.
