Step 1: Cut Out Leaves

Either cut some different leaf shapes out of your card using scissors or if you have a cutting machine, you can use that instead. It’s a fun activity for the kids to do if you’d like to get them involved. You’ll need enough leaves to make a circle, which you can make as large or as small as you’d like to fit your table. Tip: If you made mini wreaths from small cut-out leaves they’d look cute turned into 3D greeting cards!

Step 2: Score the Leaves

This step is optional. While it’s a little difficult to see in the photos, having scored veins on the leaves adds a nice bit of detail. If you don’t have a scoring tool, you can use your MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil with the lead pushed all the way in. Scoring will also help you to fold the leaves a little so they aren’t completely flat.

Step 3: Write Thankful Messages

Using your MONO Drawing Pen, write a few things you are thankful for this year onto a handful of leaves. You can have the whole family join in on this step if you’d like.

Step 4: Arrange Your Leaves

Once your messages are written, arrange the leaves in the rough order you’d like them to be in.

Step 5: Apply the Glue

Now you get to stick everything together! Just work your way around the wreath applying a small dab of MONO Multi XL Liquid Glue to each leaf and stick it to the one next to it. Once you’ve stuck all the leaves together, let your wreath sit for a little while to dry.
