Lucky Wreath

I don't have many (ok not really any) decorations for St. Patrick's Day. I really love making wreaths so I whipped this beauty up the other day.  Here is a mini-tutorial on how I did it.

I like to use foam wreaths for these projects.

Cut your fabric in 1 1/2 inch strips and wrap it around the wreath.
I try to overlap the fabric and use as little glue as possible because I don't like the look of it.
I cut out burlap diamonds to use as the banner.  I spelled out LUCK with scrabble letters and glued them on
Little Shamrocks from Pick Your Plum.  I decoupaged some cute scrapbook paper on it.

I made a variety of flowers.  Tutorials for these flowers are all over blogland, but I would be happy to provide a tutorial on them if anyone wants.

I love it up against my shabby green chair.  I will be linking to the following St. Patrick's Day linky party.

Woo Hoo, my lucky wreath was lucky enough to be featured on Someday Crafts!!  Thank You!!!
