This wreath tutorial can easily be adapted to suit younger children. Just omit the hot glue and use craft glue. You can also simplify it more by using a paper plate with the middle cut out to form a wreath as the base of cardboard. By using recycled card stock you reduce the costs of this wreath even further. 

Start by applying some hot glue and then wrapping the mesh tulle around the wreath form. This is to have something for the cotton balls to attach to and not fall through the wire wreath form. 

Add a dab of hot glue to the cotton ball and then place it on the tulle that is on the wreath. I did not have a pattern for the cotton balls but it seemed like 3 wide would cover from the top to the bottom.  

Repeat this around the entire wreath form. In a couple of places I stretched the cotton ball to fill in minor gaps. 

On the bottom of the trees is a white plastic piece that I just pulled off. I then added hot glue to the bottom of the tree and then placed it in between cotton balls on the wreath. I repeated this for the 3 trees that I added to the wreath, you could add any small trinket to the bottom of this wreath to theme it.
