St. Patty’s Day Wreath

I am a little late in posting this.  After all, this wreath has been hanging on my door for a week or two now!  


I was inspired by Crap I've Made.  Char made an adorable shamrock wreath, and I had to try it.  I glued 4 styrofoam hearts together to make the shamrock shape.  This was a little tricky, but I finally used layers of hot glue and felt in between the hearts to secure it.   (I debated about adding a stem, and finally did AFTER taking the pictures!)  I have to admit that I got a little sick of cutting circles out of green felt by the time I was done.  But I dare you to find ANY styrofoam peeking through!!

Many of you know my struggles with my very orange apartment door.  There's just nothing I can do about it. I don't mind how my shamrock looks on it.   But it looked like a giant green blob.  I had to do something about it.  

So I added a little burlap flower in the center.

Much better, don't you think?!
Okay.  Just one more view.

    Super cute! Was this hard to do? I might give it a whirl, or something similar.

  3. Welcome, Holly! I am glad someone shares my obsession. I am addicted!

    Frugal Designer… this wasn't HARD. Just time consuming. Cutting out all of those green felt circles took forever. And with this wreath, the styrofoam wasn't thick enough, and I had to use hot glue to secure the felt with the pins. Anyway, I had second thoughts in the middle of the wreath, but had to finish it! I am glad it is DONE. The felt heart wreath was much easier.
