Hello readers! I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! I am excited to be here today with another fun craft! I don’t know about you, but I just love St. Patrick’s day. I don’t know why. I’m not Irish and I don’t drink so I don’t really celebrate other than decorating my house and dressing up on the 17th. It’s just a fun holiday to enjoy, who would love pots of GOLD at the end of a rainbow, am I right?!!
Anyway, I was browsing pinterest last year and found this fabric wreath and fell in LOVE with it!! I didn’t get a chance to make it though because I had already made one for myself last year, but I pinned it anyway and I’m glad I did!
A friend of mine recently moved into a new house. I knew she would love to have a St. Patty’s day wreath for her new home, and I was right! Here’s the finished project:
It turned out so much better than I thought! I cut up a LOT of fabric and the wreath I bought was 18″. As I looked from the wreath form to the fabric I didn’t think I was going to have enough, but I did! I actually have a ton left over.
I purchased a wire wreath from Michael’s for $2.22. It was 18″ around and it had 4 wires around it. That’s why I didn’t think I’d have enough fabric! The wires all around it were very intimidating.
I bought fat quarters from JoAnn’s and Walmart and a couple quarter yards as well. I bought mainly green fabric, except for 2 white ones. I didn’t want to be too overwhelmed with green.
It was fun to make! I will admit that it took about 3-4 hours total. Between cutting the fabric and tying all those little knots on the wires, it is time consuming, but I just watched old ER episodes and the time passed quickly! 🙂
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I do! I can’t wait to see it hanging on my friends door the next time I go over. (Like I said, she just moved so she can’t find her wreath door hanger, naturally.)
Thanks for stopping by today! I can’t wait to come back next month to share another crafty adventure!
