I wanted to have a cute St. Patrick’s Shamrock wreath. I am part Irish for heaven’s sake. Did you know that my ancestor was the one who kidnapped St. Patrick?! Anyway, I saw this great idea for using hearts to make a shamrock shape, but I decided I am way too lazy to cut out that many felt circles. So, I combined that idea with this fabric scrap wreath idea and we had a winner!
Here’s my adorable Scrappy St. Patrick’s Shamrock Wreath…
Supplies needed: (lots of supplies but you probably have most of them at home)
- Styrofoam packaging (or 4 hearts from a craft store)
- Serrated knife
- Piece of paper for heart template
- Marker or pen
- Measuring device
- Two colors Green Fabric (I think I used about 1/2 yard total)
- White Glue
- Pen or pencil
- Hot glue
1. Measure 4 equal parts of foam and cut in to pieces. Use paper template and trace edges on foam with marker lid. I just dented the foam with the lid around the template so marker would not show.
4. Once all your hearts are covered hot glue the edges together. I thought it looked kind of like a blob at this point, so I added a little stem.
5. I did not like the white edges showing, so I hot glued some ribbon around the edges. Then, I tied a bow and hot glued it to the back to hang the wreath from.
6. I added an embellishment from the scrapbook section that says “Lucky you” to break up the green blob.
I couldn’t let the St. Patty’s Day decor stop at the door. I made these adorable Lucky wood blocks at Amanda’s craft night. I’m so lucky to have awesome friends!
