St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanger DIY

• Head over to Michaels, Joann or Hobby Lobby for the pieces of this project. The beard and shamrocks were found in-store.

• You can always cut out your own beard and your own shamrocks from cardstock allowing for better variation! Use cookie cutters for the shamrock templates if you decide to cut your own!

• The shamrocks are stacked on top of one another with pipe-cleaners in between to allow you to adhere the shamrocks to the door hanger and have all the shamrock seen. If you try and attach the shamrocks directly to the ruler, hat, beard, etc., most of the shamrock will be hidden by the attachment.

• This is a fast project, and yes, it is all done on the back of a ruler!

Crafts and decor do not need to be expensive to be cute. This heart wreath is made with items found at the local dollar store! Especially for a holiday like Valentine’s day – you want a little bit, but do not want to spend a fortune. This could easily be upgraded with nicer products from your local Michaels, JoAnn or Hobby Lobby too.

Notes:

• This is a fast craft. Everything came together in about 15 minutes. I swear it took longer to gather the items used on this heart wreath than it did to make it.

• This is a great craft for a kid’s door, or for a teacher to hang in the classroom.

• This can easily be adjusted to a summer wreath with a different scarf (say in yellow or blue) and different pipe cleaners (swap the red for yellow!).
