Easy DIY St. Patrick's Day Wreath

Yep.  I know.  We just got through Valentine’s Day and now I’m bombarding you with St. Patrick’s Day decor!  Well … I’m sorry.  I can’t help it.  So humor me here …

It’s Katie from View From The Fridge and if you’re looking for some fresh door decor for the next month (yep … exactly one month ’til St. Paddy’s), I’ve got a quick and easy tutorial for you today:

I’m a big fan of reusing and re-purposing decor from one holiday to the next (mostly because I hate finding a place to store it until the following year, and partly because I know I’ll want to make something NEW the following year).  So … my {super easy} Christmas wreath from this past year just got a makeover:

I pulled off the flowers that were pinned on and the berries that were tucked into the burlap ribbon, and started fresh with this:

The new wreath is not necessarily just for St. Patrick’s Day … I could just be a Spring wreath (wishful thinking as you can see the snow on the ground there in the reflection … and it’s going to be a high of 0 here … ZERO … tomorrow).  After St. Patrick’s day, a couple pink or yellow flowers or ribbon and it works perfectly for spring!

SUPPLIES:

Easy DIY St. Patrick's Day Wreath

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • An cheap wreath form (the cheapest you can find in the size you want because you won’t see any of it).
  • Burlap Ribbon.  I found that white chevron printed burlap ribbon at JoAnn Fabrics a couple months ago.  It was perfect size and length for wrapping around this wreath.
  • Green burlap ribbon (on clearance at Michael’s).
  • Green striped ribbon (Michael’s)
  • Twine
  • Wooden bunting pieces painted with black paint (again … I found these for like a quarter each at Michael’s, but you could also just use black card stock).
  • Gold letter stickers (or … you could just use a gold sharpie or white chalk pen to create the letters).

And for the rolled fabric flowers:

  • Fabric scraps cut into long strips (~4′ x 4″wide)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Felt squares for base (could also just cut a square from the same fabric for the base).

PROCESS:

And here’s how you make the wreath:

First, make your flowers.  I made 6 for this wreath, but you could go as crazy as you like.  There’s a great tutorial that I created that shows you how to make the rolled fabric rosettes HERE, but I’ll show you the picture version here:

Now … with your rosettes completed, here’s how the wreath comes together:

Easy DIY St. Patrick's Day Wreath

  1. Wrap your wreath form with the chevron burlap ribbon and pin or glue in place.
  2. Wrap your green burlap ribbon around wreath as shown and secure ends in back of wreath.
  3. Wrap your green striped/patterned ribbon around on top of the green burlap and secure in back.
  4. Wrap some twine around wreath as shown for some extra texture.
  5. Grab your rosettes and pin or glue them on the lower right ‘corner’ (I realize circles don’t have corners, but you get what I’m saying, right …)
  6. Grab your black bunting pieces, gold letters, and some twine and create the ‘HELLO’ sign strung across the wreath.  You could totally be creative here with some more festive sayings … LUCKY?  IRISH?  HAPPY ST. PADDY’S?
  7. Hang it will some extra burlap ribbon!

Thanks so much for having me here today.  I’ll be back next month with more crafting, but I’d love for you to stop by and say ‘hello’ in the meantime at my corner of the world … View From The Fridge.

Thanks for having me!

Cheers!
