This is an easy craft you can do with your kids!
 rice wreath

•    Rice
•    Glue
•    Pasta (macaroni and bowtie)
•    Red and green food coloring
•    Small round wood peg/block or wine cork
•    Paperclip

Mix dried rice with green food coloring. Let dry. In a paper bowl, add green rice and white school glue. Mix with hands until it combines and then mold into a ball and flatten into a circle with your hands. Using a round wooden peg/block (or a wine cork) on parchment paper, punch a hole in the middle and remove.
 rice wreath
In another bowl, place dried pasta (bowtie and macaroni work best) and color them red and green. Squeeze glue from a plastic squeeze bottle to glue on pasta to decorate your wreath. When the wreath is still wet, insert a paperclip halfway in at the top to act as a hook. When the wreath is dry, you can take an ornament hook and loop it through the paperclip to hang the wreath on your tree.
