- Green and bright pink construction paper
- 1 ½-inch-wide ribbon
- Make a shaka and trace your hand on the green paper.
- Repeat the first step multiple times, using hands of all family members. You will need about 20 shaka-shaped pieces.
- Cut out the pieces.
- Arrange the cutouts in a circle, with fingers pointing outward. Repeat inside the first circle until you have three layers.
- Glue the cutouts together.
- Draw 3-inch circles on the pink paper. Cut out and glue on as the berries.
- Cut a piece of ribbon long enough for hanging. Loop through the wreath and tie in a bow.

Shortcut: Use our free shaka template below instead of tracing your hand.
- Small kids might need a grownup’s help cutting out the shakas.
- Every year, trace your keiki’s growing hands. Mark with the date and add to the wreath so your holiday tradition grows!
- We bought a foam circle wreath base from a craft store and secured it to the back for added stability.
