I am not Irish…..so what!?! I wanted to get in a few St. Patrick's Day Crafts in. St. Patrick’s Day is the door way to spring! Who doesn't love a reason to craft or celebrate? My holiday preparations always begin with the front door. First impressions are very important! I seldomly purchase a premade wreath. I don't want something that everyone else has. If I do purchase a premade wreath I change it up so much you wouldn't recognize it. Wreaths are a good DIY project that spices up the front porch and sets it apart from all the neighbors.
I like to make a front door wreath as big as I can possibly get it and still be able to open the door! The bigger the better! This guy went together rather quickly. I used the biggest grapevine wreath the craft store had. Layered it with green grass, berries, and other green filler. When the wreath was nice and full, I began layering in the shamrocks. I used shiny, glittered, and metal shamrocks of all sizes. Lets just say I really sham-rocked this wreath up! I used two different colors of burlap ribbon to tie a big bow on top. The bow also holds giant glittered shamrocks that hang in the center of the wreath. I like mixing textures like; burlap and glitter, shiny and natural, really big with really small. I think it keeps things interesting!
This St. Patrick's Day wreath will only hang on the front door for a short time, Easter is two week after St. Patrick's Day this year. It's time on the door may be a short one but, it will be a glorious one! I think this is a beautiful beginning to a fantastic spring season!
