Sometimes St. Patrick’s Day decor can be a little crazy for me. Don’t get me wrong – I love green stuff and sparkles in general. But I try not to go completely glitter nuts-o for every holiday . . . sometimes I like to do things a bit more subtly.
Such is the case with my St. Patrick’s Day wreath for this year. I decided to make it simple and modern and easy to create. And I thought you’d probably appreciate that too. Here’s how I did it!
St Patricks Wreath
Gather These Supplies
- 12″ wreath form
- Green fabric of your choice – scraps work too
- Mod Podge Gloss
- Four wood hearts
- One small wood circle
- Green acrylic paint
- White acrylic paint (optional)
- Craft glue
You’ll first paint four wood hearts and one wood circle with green paint. This is going to be your obligatory four leaf clover.
Once you’re done painting and it’s dried, you’re going to glue the pieces together . . .
and this is the cute little clover that is going to result!
Grab your wreath form. They come in a few different colors and sizes. When I went, they didn’t have a white one, so I ended up having to paint mine.
This is because cotton fabrics (when decoupaged) sometimes end up not looking as bright or bold because the color of the wreath form dulls them down. My fabric was a bit thin so I took this extra measure just in case!
While you are waiting for the paint to dry on the wreath form, tear your fabric into strips (maybe 1″ – 2″ wide?). Then add Mod Podge to the wreath form and . . .
Start wrapping the strips around and around!
Keep going until the entire wreath is covered. The steps are decoupage, wrap, repeat.
When the entire thing is covered with fabric, let it dry for 15 – 20 minutes and then coat the entire wreath and fabric with Mod Podge.
Glue your shamrock to the front to finish.
Hang your St. Patrick’s Day wreath with a Command Strip or whatever you like! This wreath is really lightweight.
