As I've said before, I don't usually decorate for St. Paddy's Day, but this year I added small touches of green around the house. I started with the Quatrefoil and Four Leaf Clover printable and now I've added this:
I wanted to keep the quatrefoil theme going because it's so classic and add touches of green to the wreath. This project was extremely affordable for the scale of the wreath! I made it for just $16.00.
To get started, you will need: four grapevine wreaths, thin brown ribbon or wire, greenery garland, and ribbon.
Lie two wreaths side by side and tie them together with the ribbon or wire. Be sure to make the knot snug.
Repeat the same process with the other two wreaths. Then lay one set of two on top of the other to make the quatrefoil.
Now securely tie these together with the ribbon or wire. I went around and through the grapevine. The picture below is a close up of where I tied the wreaths.
Now weave the greenery garland in and around the wreath. I simply tucked the ends of the garland into the wreath. I did not tie it. This will make it easy for me to quickly change the appearance of the wreath with the seasons.
Now do the same thing with the ribbon. Again, I tucked the ribbon ends into the grapevine.
And there you have it! I hung the wreath above the fireplace in the middle of a decorative wrought iron wall hanging. It reminds me of an old garden gate. :)
The all green wreath is perfect for St. Paddy's Day, but I plan on changing out the ribbon and adding some fabric flowers for spring. :)
I'll be linking this project up to some of my favorite parties!
