If you have read a holiday craft post I have written in the past, you may remember that I adore any craft that involves hand or footprints. Catherine's fall handprint wreath is no different. Simply have your child make a handprint on paper, cut out the print and glue it onto a paper plate that is cut out into the shape of a wreath.
