My sister loves to decorate her house for each and every holiday. She passed this love on to her children, who decorate their bedrooms instead of the whole house. One craft I suggested they make is a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath. The wreath can be hung from a bedroom window, or outside the bedroom door.
You will need the following items to make your wreath:
- Paper plate
- Construction paper
- Hole Puncher
Follow these steps to create your wreath:
Select construction paper in a light shade of green and a dark shade. Cut out at least twenty shamrocks from the construction paper.
Cut the center out of a paper plate. The round edge makes up the base of your St. Patrick’s Day wreath.
Glue the shamrocks around the edge of the paper plate, alternating shades of green as you go. Wait for the glue to dry before continuing to the next step.
Punch a hole through the top center of the wreath with a hole puncher. Slide a 1 ft. piece of green yarn through the hole and tie together at the ends. You now have a loop in which to hang the wreath from.
- Spread glue over some of the shamrocks and then sprinkle gold glitter over the glue. The glue will dry clear, leaving behind a gold sparkle.
- Add other St. Patrick’s Day symbols to the wreath. You can cut out a pot of gold, a rainbow, or a leprechaun. Glue the symbols randomly, or to the bottom center of the wreath.
