I do not have a single piece of St. Patrick's Day decor in my home. So this year I decided I needed to at least do a wreath. And I got a brilliant idea, but then I couldn't find what I needed so I gave up. Then a few days ago I got another idea and this one was easy to get everything I needed and I love it. So now less than a week before St. Patrick's day I finally have a wreath.
A wreath you can wrap and stick pins into. (I used the same wreath I used in this project.)
1/8 yd of 4 pieces of green fabric
1 yd heavy iron on interfacing (or wonder under)
white ball headed pins
9ish yards of 3 inch ribbon to wrap the wreath with
1 yr ribbon for bow.
Now what to do. ( I am sorry I don't have step by step photo's but it is fairly simple.)
First wrap you wreath with your ribbon.
Trace an assortment of your shamrocks onto freezer paper. You will need about 15 from each piece of fabric. Trace onto a size that will fit your fabric
Iron your interfacing onto the wrong side of your fabric and then iron your freezer paper to the right side of your fabric. Then cut all of them out.
Now just piece a large one and a small one together and stick one of you white pins through them into the wreath.
Fill up your wreath.
Now for the finishing touch, a bow.
And the wreath is done. Simple and cute. And it cost me less then $10.
