Fast/Easy/Cheap DIY St. Patrick’s Day Wreath




Question:  Is it really possible to make a wreath for 3 whole dollars?  (Not including tax, of course!)  Answer:  Why yes my friends, yes it is!  Proof is in the pictures…

I simply took a dollar store wreath and wrapped in a dollar store green boa. (two whole bucks) I love how it gives the look of fluffy grass and a touch of the spring season to come to us soon!  {Can not hardly wait!}

I then used a small pack of wood hearts (one buck – for a grand total of $3.00)

I had the craft paint on hand and painted the front and rims of all the hearts in shades of yellow paint.  Once dry, I added the green sparkle because nobody has ever heard of a yellow shamrock..but I couldn’t have a green one on a green wreath.  It needed the little burst of color and I wanted to coordinate the clovers with the ribbon.  Now for real, is it clover or shamrock?  …I have no idea.

I also took apart a 2 clothes pins and painted 3 (of the 4) pieces in the same way I painted the hearts.  While that was drying, I wrapped and glued the boa around the wreath form.


I went on to hot glue the hearts in a clover shape onto the half of a disassembled clothes pin – which is acting as the stem for my clover.  When using the hot glue on such tiny parts of the hearts, I did a bridge like affect on the back to secure it all into place.


Then I simply took them and hot glued them into place on the wreath!


I think it turned out pretty cute and I am giving it to my Mom as part of her DIY birthday present!  So Mom, if you happen to read this – just forget that it is your gift!


One question for my awesome readers:  Do I leave it as-is or do I add a small pennant banner that says “lucky” or something?  I’d love to hear your thoughts on this.  Since I suck as a daughter and didn’t give it to her yet…(her birthday was March 4th) I wanted to hear what you had to say first!  Sorry Mom, I do love you and STO-LAT!
