Lucky St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

Do you ever have one of those weeks that you feel like a chicken with your head cut off? That is what this week has been like for me. I’ve had parent teacher conferences for all four boys, put up the March birthday bulletin board for PTA, helped at the school book fair, been trying to work on a few projects, went to Disney on Ice with the family, had some chiropractor appointments, and had bunko last night. I’ve been totally busy and stressed this week! I’m so glad to see Friday today!
Am I the only one that can’t resist a good clearance sale at Target? Right after Christmas, I was in Target shopping, and came upon their clearance at 90% off. When things are 90% off, I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time passing them up! I found the fun sparkly wreaths for $.80. I grabbed a green, red, and blue. I figured that I could use them for Valentine’s Day (didn’t happen), St. Patrick’s Day and the 4th of July. Well, I did get this St. Patrick’s Day Wreath put together just in time for the holiday, and I must say, I am in love with it.¬† I’ve been in a creative slump lately, so I was hesitant and didn’t know if it would turn out when I started working on it, but I love it, and it only took me about 30 minutes to complete.

Using the amazing new Cricut Explore machine, I cut out this simple, fun banner and strung it together with some jute twine.

I used the Storybook font cartridge for the letters.

Once I had the banner put together, I just tied it around the wreath. The great part about this is that if I wanted to, I could take the banner off and use this wreath for another holiday.

I finished off this project by using some wide burlap ribbon to hang it from.

I think this is one of the simplest things I’ve ever had hanging on my front door, and I love it.

I’m curious, what is on your front door for St. Patrick’s Day?

    This is sooooo cute! Yes I do feel like a chicken running around with its head cut off sometimes! :D I love that term, it’s funny. It’s been a while since I have run in to the 90% off but I won’t buy anything unless it is for the Target after Christmas!
