Decorating for St. Patrick’s Day

I know it’s a little early to be decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, but I’m seriously ready for spring! 

St Patrick's Day Chalk Board

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.  wreath supplies

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.

St. Patrick's Day Bow

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.

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…..
