St. Patrick's Day DIY Wreath

Some holidays bring out the best and worst in people. Usually though, people stay true to their ethnic background. That doesn't seem to be the case with St Patrick's Day. Every year, more and more people claim to be Irish and drink their day away.

Is there a point to this holiday? What were the beginnings? This seems to be something that I need to study further at a later time. Seriously though, I don't think it became a holiday so people can drink green beer. My wreath doesn't help with that sterotype but, here we go. (P.s I rarely drink and I am just having fun, please no one be offended.)


I had to do things a little differently this month. Green trash bags were pretty expensive and I'm broke, white would look kind of silly and wouldn't convey the message from far away, so I had to find another way.

This time I used:

Green Shirt
Scissors or fabric cutter
wire or Hanger
Decorations

As far as instructions go, it works the same way as all the rest have. Just in case you haven't caught them before, let's dive right in, and make sure you check out the past wreaths sometime.


First, As always, cut up the shirt or green fabric or trash bags, into the size strips that you need. Don't worry, you can always trim them down after you attach them if you don't like the length.


Once that is done, you need to move on to shaping your wreath. I tried for a about an hour, to shape my hanger into a four leaf clover and it just wouldn't work for me. Even when I got it, it just didn't look right. So I opted to go with the classic circle.


Now, just work your away around the hanger tying on the cut up pieces of fabric. Once you get a few on you should have an idea on size, cut smaller pieces from here on out if you need to. You will need a lot of strips, so use them wisely.


Once your out of strips, move on to the next part which is decorating. I decided to go simple with mine and just add in a necklace with a shot glass attached to it. It is simple and fun and not too flashy. you can add whatever you want to make it your own.


I know it is plain but I enjoy it. Have you made any of the wreaths on my pages? Please, if you have let me know down below. Any tips on how I can improve would be great. Thank you so much for reading everyone,a nd have an amazing day!!
