Uncategorized Decorating for St. Patrick’s Day February 16, 2018 I know it’s a little early to be decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, but I’m seriously ready for spring! Monday it was so cold, in the 30’s. Today is a breezy 78! My Brella app told me to break out the shorts and flip flops to wear with my crown. I’m loving it! Of course, one of the first things I decorated was my chalkboard and kitchen area. When I see the Oxalis plants at the nursery, I know it’s time to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day. Woo Hoo! Once I finished in the kitchen, I moved to the front porch. I thought I had a wreath to go with my garden flag, but couldn’t find one. Clearly, it was time to make a new one! Brittany the Certified Celebrator was my inspiration for this one. Her St. Patrick’s Day wreath was super cute. I thought that I would try making a similar one. Aren’t these glittery shamrocks from the Dollar Tree cute? I bought 3 packages to make sure I had enough for my project. The wreath and the ribbon were leftovers from earlier projects. The first thing I did was make a ribbon and glue it onto the wreath. Normally, I would add the bow last. However, this time I thought it would be easier to add it first. This project is so easy to do. Simply fold the shamrock in half, then put a small dot of hot glue in the center. Press the shamrock onto the wreath. I continued doing this, placing the shamrocks at random angles, until the wreath was full. Once I was finished, I noticed that I had some holes on the sides. To fill these holes in, I cut the shamrocks in half. Then glued the partial shamrocks into the holes. So cute! Just looking at that bright green on the black door makes me happy! A sure sign that spring is just around the corner! Maybe I should have started decorating for St. Patrick’s Day a lot sooner. Until next time….. Tammy You can find me at these fabulous link parties!

Love that flag too, hehe. I skipped right over both Valnetine’s and St Patrick’s (other than yard flags). I was ready for spring right after Christmas!
