Yarn Wrapped Shamrock Wreath

Are you lacking in St. Patrick’s Day decor?

I don’t have a lot of St. Paddy’s decor. I wanted to make something that say’s “St. Patrick’s Day” but still fit into my everyday decor.

This yarn wrapped shamrock wreath was the perfect fit!

I grabbed a foam pipe insulator.

You can pick these up at your hardware store.

I bent it into a circle and taped it together.

I secured a piece of yarn to the foam insulator with tape and began to wrap

and wrap and wrap and wrap.

Yes, there’s a lot of wrapping, but not to worry it really doesn’t take that long.

I snipped my yarn and secured with a dab of hot glue.

Then I made these shamrocks with green, gray and white felt.

Click here for a tutorial on how to make them, why reinvent the wheel, right?

I picked these stylish green buttons out of my stash and attached them to the center of the shamrocks with a little dab of hot glue.

The result…a simple St. paddy’s Day wreath for almost next to nothing.

You can’t be that, cheap and easy.

I love projects that are budget friendly!
