St. Patrick's Day Wreath in a Few Easy Steps!

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)
  • Paintbrush
  • Craft glue
Paint a wooden heart with green acrylic paint

You’ll first paint four wood hearts and one wood circle with green paint. This is going to be your obligatory four leaf clover.

Glue painted green wooden hearts to a wooden circle

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!

Green floral wreath form

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!

Add Mod Podge to your wreath form with a paintbrush

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 . . .

Fabric strips wrapped around a wreath form

Start wrapping the strips around and around!

Wrap fabric strips around your wreath using Mod Podge

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.

Add a dab of glue to your wreath

Glue your shamrock to the front to finish.

it is a lovely wreath. In my opinion there is one tiny error of great significance. Legend has it that St Patrick used the shamrock because it had 3 leaves which he used to represent the Father, Son and Holy Trinity.

The 4 leaf clover on the other hand is I think about luck.

Happy St Patrick's Day for next Tuesday.
