  • 1.

    What kind of wreath will you make? Choose Crayola Model Magic colors to fit a holiday theme, to match a color scheme in your room, or just choose your favorite combination of colors.

  • 2.

    Start with an empty, recycled cereal box. Open it and flatten the cardboard. Cut a large circle from the cardboard. TIP: Trace around a paper plate or large plastic bowl to make a perfect circle.

  • 3.

    Fold the cardboard circle in half. Now, starting a few inches from the end cut away a half circle from the middle. TIP: To keep your wreath from folding up, tape 2 pieces of leftover cardboard over the fold line on the back.

  • 4.

    Use a hole punch to make a hole in the cardboard. Tie a loop of ribbon through the hole. This will be the hanging loop for your wreath.

  • 5.

    Completely cover the cardboard with Crayola Model Magic. Press the modeling compound flat and smooth over the cardboard using your hands, your fingers, or the flat side of a closed Crayola Marker.

    USE THE DOT TOOL! Roll out a flat, even layer of Model Magic that’s almost as thick as the base of the dot tool. Use several different colors of Model Magic for the dots on your wreath. Or mix and marble 2 colors for a very cool effect!

  • 7.

    Push the Dot tool straight down to the bottom of the layer. Then give the tool a twist, tilt it back and pull it out.

  • 8.

    Press the bottom of the Dot Tool on the Model Magic layer you’ve placed on the wreath. Pull the tool away to release the dot. Presto! The dot should come right out and stick to the surface! Keep adding Presto dots until your wreath is covered.

    Model Magic takes 24 hours to dry, but you should wait 2-3 days just to be sure it is completely dry on both sides. Be sure to turn your wreath so both sides have a chance to air dry.
