For anyone who may have missed it last year, here is my Scrappy St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Wreath. It is still one of my fave things I’ve made, so here we go…
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 Char’s 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!
