St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath

Find your pot o’ gold on this charming St. Patrick’s Day door décor wreath! This wreath is meant to be abundant, but not complete around the straw wreath. You, of course, can do what you like. If you do not want any exposed straw, I’d suggest making the balls come up both sides of the wreath (duplicating each side), and then placing the shamrocks and coins at the top.


Like so many crafts this is simply an idea for you to begin with and expand upon to make your own. You can follow my steps exactly, or go off in your own direction.

Notes:

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this easy St. Patrick’s Day Luck o’ the Irish Wreath craft can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby

• Take the straw wreath outside to unwrap it, and then give it a good shake outdoors! This will remove the loose straw, and keep your house tidy.

• Christmas bulbs were used on this craft – because I am cheap. Different textures, and various shades make for wonderful depth and juxposition of colors and textures. You can use craft balls in different shades of gold and green, but adhering them to the wreath may be a bit tricky.

• Quilter t-pins + hot glue were used to attach the bulbs. You could also use the floral picks with the wire at the end, or you could try and use only hot glue, but it may be a bit difficult.

• Instead of felt shamrocks, you could cut out paper ones – providing your wreath is not expoded to the elements.

• You could also use pot o’ gold felt cutouts.

• You can purchase the “gold coins” at the dollar store for a buck, or your favorite craft store for more.

• Layer the baubles (balls):
• Insert a quilting pin into the hanger portion of your bulb (at the top of the ornament cap).
• Insert the pin into the straw wreath, then, dab a dot of hot glue under the ball to more firmly affix it in place.
• Note: the pin is going to anchor across the ball wire hanger and you want to push that quiting pin in sideways to hide the ornament cap (hanger and pin) in the wreath and away from the exterior of the finished wreath product.
• Proceed to attach more bulbs in the same manner. Pay attention to size, texture, and holes. If you want to place some smaller bulbs on top of the larger wreath-adhered bulbs, you can hot glue them to the existing bulbs, and hide those holes. 12 bulbs were used in total on this wreath. You can use more or less according to your personal taste and preferences.
• Once you are finished with your bulbs, take a step back and make certain they are as complete as you would like, and firmly adhered to the wreath.
