Yesterday I was in the mood for a quick craft so I decided to make a new wreath for St. Patrick's day. It was super easy and turned out pretty dang cute if I do say so myself.
All I did was take a straw wreath form (or you could use foam... whichever is cheaper) and wrap it with green yarn.
And wrap and wrap and wrap. I enlisted the help of my five year old for this. He held the ball of yarn and did the wrapping while I adjusted the spacing and kept everything tight. With his help we had it done in about 30 minutes or so.
Then I hot glued a great big green and white bow on the top.
My secret to perfect bows is wired ribbon. It makes all the difference!!!
The letters for the word "lucky" I found at Micheal's already painted white and glittered. As much as I love painting its sometimes nice to find stuff already done!
I just hot glued the letters down another piece of the green ribbon and secured it to my wreath with a few sewing pins. Like this...
That way if i ever want to remove the lucky banner and use the wreath for something else I can. I'm not sure I ever will but its nice to have options!
And that's it!
A super cute new wreath for my front door in a little over an hour. I love crafts like that!
As always I'm linking to these great parties and events:
