St Patrick’s Day Wreath DIY
Since St. Patrick’s day and Easter are so close together this year I decided to start sharing St. Patrick’s Day crafts and DIY’s early. I’m starting with a super cute door wreath made from Items that I found for a dollar each.
Foam wreath 7.9″ x 1.5″ (I cut mine in half lengthwise to have a second wreath base to use for Easter.)
1 package of 12 foam shamrocks 6 glitter and 6 plain.
Wrapping Ribbon and tooth picks.
Decide on your shamrock design and hot glue the foam shamrocks in place.
I decided to use my solid green as a base and the glitter shamrocks as the top layer. You can also alternate shamrocks for a stripe or spiral design. It is up to you.
Cut your ribbon to the lengths you like and curl the ribbon. Wrap and glue the center of the ribbon to the top of the tooth pick. When you curl the ribbon start curling from the center out to each end. This makes it easier to glue the ribbon in place and helps the ribbon curls to fall in a more attractive way.
Press the toothpicks into the foam ring and weave the ribbon through the shamrock leaves. Use a yellow or gold ribbon to represent gold or add small plastic gold coins to add a little detail or depth. You can personalize the wreath in lots of ways such as adding leprechaun hats or shoes, pots of gold, or rainbows. Your imagination is your only limitation.
Your wreath is ready to welcome people to your home and remind them that they make their own luck.
My favorite old Irish saying is
May the sun shine, all day long,
everything go right, and nothing wrong.
May those you love bring love back to you,
and may all the wishes you wish come True!
