Time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and welcome spring with a festive Irish wreath. (Maybe the snow will be melted by then!)
Make your own shamrock for the front door or over the fireplace with a few simple craft supplies.
I found three white wicker wreaths for only $.49 each at Goodwill. Here’s a shopping hint: check out the holiday department every time you shop. You never know what you might find. These were on the Christmas shelf.
I purchased two yards of green tulle, a sheet of craft foam, piece of black felt and curling ribbon at the craft store.
Cut the tulle into strips eight inches wide and wrap around each wreath. Use a hot glue gun to hold in place.
Then wind the curling ribbon around each. Don’t try to be too neat! Secure in the back with glue. Hold the wreaths together with more ribbon. This time tie the knots in front and curl the ends with a scissors.
Make a leprechaun hat from the felt. Use a piece of leftover foam for the ribbon and add a fancy button.
Set the hat at a jaunty angle and glue in place. Glue the clover stem to the back and add more curling ribbon. After all, you want to attract the leprechaun and his lucky pot of gold!
