Just a Little St. Patrick's Day Craft - A Wreath

I was feeling a little bad that I hadn't put any St. Patrick's Day decor up.  Truth is, I don't have any.  We do use a lot of green in our living room, does that count?  No?  Ok, well, I whipped something up this weekend real quick.  Just a little extra green to be a little festive.  I realize this is probably way late for blog world, but hey, it is what it is.

I created a cute little St. Patrick's Day wreath for our bedroom door.  This was one of those almost too easy projects.  Love those!  I used one of my $1 frames left over from our wedding that I've been using for project after project.  Frames can be wreaths too!

I covered my $1 wreath with some green fabric, and cut out the center just like I did with my stenciled music sheet frame.  Only instead of using Mod Podge to adhere the fabric, I used hot glue on the back to pull the fabric taunt around the frame.

Once that was done, I took a cute little sparkly shamrock ornament that I found at JoAnn Fabrics for about $2 & cut off the ribbon.  I attached it with hot glue to my frame, and I was done!  A random piece of yarn was added to hang it by and voila!  A new little festive wreath.

I really like the sparkly shamrocks.  They are for sure the best part about this.  Have you made any decorations for St. Patrick's Day this year?
