Like everything else at the moment, an ANZAC Day in isolation is gong to be quite different to what we're used to. It doesn't mean we can't show our support though! We created this easy poppy wreath for our window teddy bear friends, Ozzy and Osbourne, to show our neighbourhood that we remember. This is an easy craft you can do with the kids, and a great way to show your support this ANZAC Day. Here's how...
red coloured baking cups (or cut round shapes from red paper)
green paint and a paintbrush
scissors or a craft knife
double sided tape
a black marker
Trace a large plate or bowl onto the cardboard, then use a smaller plate to trace a circle within the first one. This will give you the shape of the wreath, which you can cut out using scissors or a craft knife.
Paint the cardboard green and allow this to dry. Most of the wreath will be covered so it doesn't have to be perfect! If you don't have green paint you could cover the wreath with green paper.
While the wreath is drying, draw black circles in the middle of the baking cups to make your poppies. I added dots around the circles to give them a bit more character.
Once the wreath is dry, arrange the poppies on top of it, then once you are happy with how it looks, stick them down using double sided tape. And there you have it! A bright poppy wreath ready to place in your front window with your teddy mates.
The Poppy Day collection won't be happening this year either, so click here if you'd like to donate via the RSA website.
