Green is my all-time favorite color, so I’m swimming in delight when St. Patrick’s Day rolls around. But I never really thought of it as an all-out decorating holiday until Kim Stoegbauer created some festive projects I couldn’t pass up. I personally love this easy-to-create burlap wreath, because once St. Patrick’s Day is (sadly) over, you can simply remove the shamrock and green-and-white ribbon and embellish it for the next upcoming holiday or just decorate it for spring. It’s that easy.
The finished St. Patrick’s Day wreath.
Imagine this little beauty on your front door. I’m pretty sure you’ll be the only one on the block with a St. Patty’s Day wreath that looks this good!
1. Gathering the materials. 2. Tying the fabric around the foam wreath.
All you need for this project is a 14-inch foam wreath, 1-1/2 yards of burlap fabric, scissors, a sparkly shamrock embellishment and a ribbon for hanging.
After cutting the burlap into strips, start tying the fabric into a knot around the foam wreath. Continue tying the strips, making sure to overlap the the previous strip with the next strip.
1. Adding the shamrock embellishment. 2. Wreath with embellishment and hanging ribbon.
After covering the wreath with fabric, add the embellishments. This shiny shamrock is the perfect addition for St. Patrick’s Day, as well as the green-and-white, polka-dot hanging ribbon. Get the Full Step-by-Step Instructions Here >>
