Fun and Easy Shamrock Wreath

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! I’m part Irish, so it’s always fun for me! Sooo…to celebrate, I created this shamrock wreath…so fun and easy to make! It was inexpensive, too, since most of the supplies came from my stash. And…I love that it is not too over-the-top!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Wreath suppliesMy inspiration came from a lovely wreath from Consie at Atop Serenity Hill that I found here. She’s a fabulous artist and I …errr…am not, so I just made a few changes to better suit my lack of talent capabilities.
Here’s what you will need:
  • A grapevine wreath (about 15 inches)
  • Approximately 50 strips of burlap measuring 1” x 6” (I just raided my scrap stash, but 1/3 of a yard of burlap will be more than enough.)
  • Felt squares in three shades of green (1 square of light green, 1 of dark green and 2 of medium green)
  • Print-out of the shamrock template found here
  • Hot glue gun
  • Jute twine (to hang the wreath)
And here’s what you will do:
  1. Tie the strips of burlap to the wreath, spacing them evenly throughout the wreath.
  2. Using the template, cut out the shamrocks in three different sizes.  (I cut 5 large shamrocks in medium green, 5 medium shamrocks in medium green, 10 small shamrocks in light green and 5 small shamrocks in dark green.)
  3. Hot glue the shamrocks to the wreath, spacing them evenly throughout the wreath.
  4. Tie a loop of jute twine to the back of the wreath to hang it.

And here it is…ready to let my home join in on the wearin’ o’ the green! Erin go Bragh!
