Quick and Simple St. Patricks Day Wreath

My kids are counting down the days until they get the day off from school to celebrate Ireland’s biggest holiday – St. Patrick’s Day.

Waiting is oh, so hard!

Until then, they did help me make a super simple felt wreath to decorate one corner of our home.

We traced shamrocks onto green felt, then cut them out and hot glued them on a wreath form.

Super simple and not overly obnoxious! Those are my two main criteria when it comes to holiday crafting.

I used a wire wreath form like this one so I could easily remove the felt shamrocks if I want to reuse the wreath form in the future. You can also buy flat craft rings on Amazon. If you don’t have a wreath form, a cardboard box or cereal box cut into a ring shape would work too.

While I opted for the minimalist approach, there are endless ways to trick this wreath out.

You could add a Happy St. Patrick’s Day sign from the dollar store, rainbow ribbon, a leprechaun hat, etc.

I’ll end with a quote that is appropriate for this craft. I don’t know if it is truly Irish or who to attribute the saying to, but It sounds good.

“For each petal on the shamrock, this brings a wish your way: good health, good luck and happiness for today and every day.”

Nice, right?

It sure beats the other anonymous quote I found: “God created liquor to keep the Irish from conquering the world.” Although there may be some truth to that…
