I first saw this idea on Pinterest and pinned it, knowing it would come in handy, since I have a massive amount of family members who enjoy drinking tea (myself included!). I’ve made one for a birthday already, and there’s another one appearing at a Christmas party this weekend (Shhhh, don’t tell!).

The instructions are quite simple, even the kids were able to help in parts of this one, so go get some tea and your supplies and make yourself (or someone else) a wreath!

Tea Wreath


Age Range: 2 1/2 and up

Time Required: 30 minutes

Skills: Cutting and gluing


  • large piece of cardboard
  • xacto knife and scissors
  • scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, fabric or spray paint
  • white glue sticks
  • glue gun
  • clothes pins (20 or more, depending on the size of your circle)

Step 1

Measure how big you want your wreath to be on a piece of cardboard. Trace and cut out with an xacto knife. Then position a clothespin on the outside edge of your cardboard to see where it hits the middle, and cut out the center where you want it to go.

Step 2

Cover your cardboard wreath with fabric, scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, or spray paint. For a nice, straight edge in the center, cut notches so it doesn’t tear and will fold flat on the underside.

Step 3

Hot glue your clothes pins to the wreath with the PINCHERS pointing OUT – this is what will grab the tea when you are ready to assemble.

Step 4

Cut out strips of paper to cover your clothes pin tops – or paint/spray paint. White glue sticks worked the best to attach the paper to the clothespins.

Step 5

Once dry, insert tea bags, tie with a ribbon, and away you go!
