I’m jumping in to decorating for St. Patrick’s Day this week. This is one of those holidays that for me means fun, whimsical, and festive decor is called for. Making this Whimsical St. Patrick’s Day Wreath was both easy and budget friendly. Using items from the Dollar Tree kept the cost low.
I’ve made wreaths before using scarves and boas, but this time I combined the two. A couple of years ago I made a simple Coastal Scarf Wreath that truly only took about ten minutes to make.
For my St. Patrick’s Day wreath, I’m using boas and a fun scarf with a leprechaun hat pattern.
14″ metal wreath form
Wood Leprechaun Hat
I wrapped the end of one boa around the inner ring of the wreath form. It’s tucked around the metal to keep it in place.
I continued to place the boa around the inner ring until it met at the ends. I twisted the end around and tucked it in place.
I used a total of four boas to make the wreath full. Once they were wrapped around the form, I used some pipe cleaners to hold them in place along the way.
I tried several different ways to use the scarf. Simply tying it around the wreath into a big bow was my favorite position for it.
My local Dollar Tree had packages of these fun hats. Using the strings that are attached to the hats, I tied them around the top of the wreath. I used a piece from a door hanger that I also bought at the Dollar Tree for the center of the wreath. I used the other pieces in my Leprechaun Hat Centerpiece. I added green ribbon to the wooden piece and draped it from the wreath hanger.
A third hat was hot glued between the other two hats.
I found some fun cupcake picks that I used for some contrasting color. I twisted a piece of pipe cleaner around the stems to make them more sturdy and then hot glued them onto the boas.
Gold coin were glued to pipe cleaners and then hot glued to the boas.
Since the hats, picks, and coins all came in packages I still have some of those to use for more projects. I already had the metal wreath form, so the cost of this was around $8.00.
I don’t think the boas would hold up well if the wreath is exposed to rain, but it should be fine otherwise. I’m enjoying decorating more for St. Patrick’s Day this year than I usually do. I think it’s been such a dreary winter that I’m ready for some fun, colorful decor.
