St. Patty's Day Wreath

Erin Go Bragh! We love St. Patty's Day at our house and to help decorate, I made this wreath for our front door!

It was very easy to make but a tad time consuming. I bought 4 heart shaped pieces of foam ($2 each), 1 yard each of two different shades of green fabric ($4.19), 1 package of glittery foam sheets (3.99), Foam glue (already had, but it's probably around $2), 1 little piece of faux black leather fabric (already had), gold pen (already had but I think it's about $2), Chuck E Cheese's Tokens (we have plenty in our reserves here at the house), and finally, 1 piece of green ribbon.

I used my rotary cutter to cut the fabric into 2X2" squares.

I glued the tips of the hearts together to make a clover shape and secured it by tying them with the fabric.

I then wrapped the squares of fabric around the end of a pencil and glued them all over the clover. It took about two hours.

I then used a large bowl to cut our strips of the glittery foam for the rainbow and glued them together. I then glued the rainbow to the wreath.

To make the pot, I used the little swatch of black faux leather and cut it out in the shape that I wanted and then hemmed the edge. I then rolled a small piece of fabric into a tube and sewed it to the top of the pot to make the lip. Next I glued Chuck E. Cheese's tokens between the pot and rainbow and all over the wreath.

Finally, I attached the ribbon and hung it up! I just hope it brings us the luck of the Irish! Happy St. Patty's Day everyone!
