This post is for everyone who wants to be Irish this month. I hit up my craft supply hoard to create this St. Patrick’s Day wreath. There are 3 steps to making it. You might want to copy just a part of it to incorporate into your creations.
There are several supplies needed. A styrofoam wreath form and yarn to wrap around it. It took me about an hour to get it wrapped.
Wire, green and black felt, gold plastic buttons, thin cardboard or posterboard, and crafting straight pins.
Tulle ribbon, twine, and gold bead strand.
After I wrapped my wreath form with the yarn, I cut out a pot from the black felt and the poster board. The felt pot is slightly larger to completely hide the poster board. I glued the felt on top of the poster board pot so the felt pot wouldn’t flop around.
Then I pinned the pot onto the wreath.
I cut out a shamrock from the green felt, and glued it over the pins.
Cut the backs of several buttons off using a wire clipper. Glue the buttons to the top of the black pot.
Cut 2 pieces of wire and wrap them around 2 button backs each, just like the photo below.
Then put a dab of glue on the backs to hold the buttons in place on the wire. Poke the ends of the wire into the wreath behind the pot.
Your pot should look like this.
Make pom poms with your tulle ribbon. I used twine to tie it together. Yarn didn’t hold it.
Glue gold bead chain like this picture, to the back of the wreath.
Glue the tulle pom poms to the bead chain.
And now it’s ready to hang.
Are you getting your Irish on?
