St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner and I’m so excited! It’s one of my favorite holidays because it’s so fun and no one has to buy anyone any presents! 🙂 I wanted to make a new wreath to decorate my front door for the month of March and knew it had to be a St. Paddy’s Day one. Want to make your own St. Patrick’s Day yarn wreath? It’s simple, here’s how:
What you will need:
wreath (I used a straw one)
dark and light green felt
green ribbon for hanging
hot glue gun
This will be a striped wreath with alternating white and green sections. If you are a perfectionist, you may want to mark out the sections so they are even and you don’t even up with two of the same colors side by side. After you’ve done that, you will begin by gluing one color on the back of your wreath and wrapping it around an around until that section is full, then glue the other end on the back again.
Then you will continue with the white and the more green until your entire wreath is covered. You can feel free to use thin or thicker stripes, however you’d like your finished wreath to look.
I used about 2 1/2 in sections for each of my colors. This is what your finished wrapped wreath will look like. Now time for the shamrocks!
To make your shamrocks, cut four heart shapes out of the felt and then glue the corners together in a spiraling pattern. I glued an different shade of green down for the middle.
For my wreath, I made three shamrocks, two with the darker green and one with the lighter green.
Hot glue your shamrocks onto your wreath and then just add the ribbon to the top to hang it and you are finished!
This wreath didn’t take too long to make and it relatively easy to put together. As with all of these wreaths, it’s the wrapping that takes the longest, but I always suggest doing it at night while watching your favorite show and a glass of wine- it’s much more relaxing that way.
