St Patrick's Day Wreath Across the BlvdIt’s close enough to spring to begin thinking of warm, sunny days, blooming flowers and vibrant colors! Even though we’re still in the midst of chilly February days, I’m ready to dress my front door in spring time colors. With St. Patrick’s Day only a few weeks away, it’s a great time to brighten up my decor.

When I decided to make a St Patrick’s Day wreath, I thought I would use the traditional shamrock decor pieces for it. I bought several wooden shamrocks to use. But, when I started putting the wreath together, something just wasn’t working. I also bought some jeweled flower stems that I wanted to use. Those combined with the shamrocks just made the wreath look too cluttered. I put the shamrocks aside and decided to let the green ribbon and the jewel stems give the wreath a St Patrick’s Day feel. 

Jewel Flower Stems

After that decision was made, I ran into a problem. Clearly, I didn’t plan ahead well enough before I started making this wreath. I wrapped the ribbon around a straw wreath and then this happened.

Plus, I wanted to finish the wreath this morning. I pulled the flowers from their stems and began placing them over the empty spot on the wreath. I didn’t want to make it look too crowded, but I thought I could cover the spot well.

I added the jewel stems with hot glue. I used a piece of burlap with gold specks to make a loop for hanging. For the bow, I reused the same one I made for my Valentine’s Day Wreath. I just replaced the red button with this green one. The bow is pinned onto the wreath with pearl head pins.

While there are no shamrocks or witty Irish quotes, I’m loving how bright and cheery my St. Patrick’s Day Wreath turned out.
