Green St. Patrick's Day Wreath {tutorial}


Today I caught the craft bug!  I have wanted to make some kind of St. Patrick's Day wreath, but I just wasn't sure what I wanted it to look like. 

So today I went at it.  Here is what I came up with!

I started off with about 6 different patterns of fabric.  Most of them were fabric quarters on sale at JoAnns this last weekend.

I also cut strips of Burlap to cover up the white styrofoam wreath.  

Here it is all wrapped up and ready to decorate!

I didn't take pictures of making the flowers, but there are some fabulous tutorials already out there.  Here is one I used.


I never really decorated for St. Paddy's Day before, but it's kinda fun to see what I can come up with!  I love the way it turned out:)  

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
