How to Make Poppy Wreaths


As it is Remembrance Sunday this week, we decided to make a craft project to commemorate the occasion. It’s a great way to help children learn and understand more about history and what the poppy symbol represents.

To get started, cut a large circle from A4 red card. We decided to add a verse of the poem In Flanders Fields by John McCrae to the centre of our wreath. If you want to do the same, write or print it out then cut this into a circle. Stick this into the middle of the red disc.

To create the poppies, cut four petal shapes from red tissue paper and crease them a little to make them ruffled.


Stick them together, we used a glue pen.

Then add a small black circle on top for the poppy centre.

Our circle was 18cm in diameter and we made eight poppies. Once you have created all your flowers, stick them around the edge of the large circle. Add a ribbon loop to finish so you can hang it up.


Will you be making any projects to mark Remembrance Sunday?
