I had such a great time making the Easter Wreath, I decided to try my luck again with a fun St. Patrick’s Day Wreath. I love that I have found a way to make holiday wreaths so affordable and I may just make one for every holiday!
So once again, I set off for Hobby Lobby to see what I could find to design a St. Patrick's Day wreath. These are all items I found at my local Hobby Lobby, and the discounts I saw. Discounts change from week to week, so make sure you check the signs.
Fun St. Patrick's Day Wreath Supplies:
- 1 14” Flora Craft “Make It Fun” White Foam Wreath
- 1 Box of St. Patrick’s Day 2015 Decorations (30% off)
- 1 Roll Ribbon Boutique Ribbon 1.5” wide X 3 yards Neon Green (50 % off)
- 1 Roll Ribbon Boutique Ribbon 2.5” wide X 3 yards Champagne (50% off)
- 1 St. Patrick’s Day Crafts Mixed Feather Boa 2 yards (30% off)
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
How To Make A Fun St. Patrick's Day Wreath:
1) Wrap the Neon Green ribbon around the Foam Wreath to cover it and secure it with the hot glue gun. This is loosely wrapped just to show you that the ribbon will not cover the entire foam wreath. The ribbon will only covered half of the wreath when wrapped tightly.
2) Cover the other half of the wreath with the Feather Boa and secure it with the hot glue gun.
3) Use the hot glue gun to attach the larger hats to the wreath. I added a few of the coins as well. You can add whatever you want from the box of St. Patrick's Day Decorations, but I will be making other crafts using this box, so if you plan to follow along, save some of them for our St. Patrick's Day Placemats, Napkins, and Centerpiece!
4) Use the Champagne ribbon to make the Bow and the Loop hang the wreath using the same steps I used to make the Easter Wreath. The only difference in this loop hanger is that I glued it instead of tying it because I was running low on the ribbon by the time I finished with my bow.
I completed this wreath for under $20.00 and still had St. Patrick’s Day 2015 Decorations to use in my other St. Patrick's Day projects!

How to Make Your Homemade St. Patrick's Day Wreaths
Step 1: Wrap the St. Patrick's Day garland around your foam wreath shape.
Step 2: Once you have decided how tight you want to wrap your wreath form, use your hot glue gun to attach the garland to the foam shape. When you have finished wrapping the garland around the wreath form, glue the other end to the wreath form as well.
Step 3: Choose the image you wish to use in the center of your wreath. A shamrock, pot of gold, leprechaun or any other St. Patrick's Day image you like would work. Then choose the Welcome Font image you like with your shape. Cut your images with your die cutting machine.
This shamrock is from the Cricut Classroom Cartridge - February and March (#M46DDD). The dimensions used were 5.2-inches X 5.71-inches. The shadow image is cut from the cardboard and gold and the image was cut from the green cardstock.
The welcome image used is from the Cindy Loo Cricut Cartridge (M3765B) and is 5.05-inches X 1.5-inches.
Step 4: With your liquid adhesive, attach your gold and green shamrocks to the cardboard back. It is best to let this sit under a book or weight while it dries to make sure you get a good flat form for your wreath center. Once dry, use your Xyron 2.5-inch Create-A-Sticker Maker to attach the Welcome to the shamrock.
Step 5: Punch a hole in the shamrock to hang it in the center of the wreath with your thread.Step 6: Using two pieces of ribbon, each about 24-inches long, thread them around the wreath form, one on each side of the thread used to hang the welcome sign in the center and tie them together, to create your hanger.
Hang your finished Homemade St. Patrick's Day Wreath on your door and enjoy! With projects this easy and quick to make, we should probably consider making one for every holiday, don't you think?
