Fluffy Shamrock Wreath Tutorial

by Jenn @ Frugal Upstate on March 10, 2014

Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day?  I admit, while we aren’t Irish, we do enjoy an excuse to eat some delicious corned beef and cabbage, and to change out our Valentines Day decorations for something new while we wait for true spring and Easter to arrive.

This year for my Walmart Mom St. Patrick’s Day project I decided to veer away from my typical rainbow food post (remember the Rainbow Cake and the Rainbow Jello?) and make a Shamrock Wreath.  Since my Easy and Inexpensive Fluffy Valentines Day Heart Wreath turned out so pretty, I decided to create a similar wreath in the Shamrock shape.

Fluffy Shamrock Wreath Project

The materials are simple and inexpensive.  This project will take 3 green plastic table covers from the Party Aisle at Walmart (at about $.97 each), a pack of wire hangers (from the closet organization area of Walmart), some scissors, some tape and a few twist ties (not shown).

To make the wreath you must start by making three of the heart wreaths.  You bend your hangers into the heart shape, cut your plastic talbe covers into strips about 3 inches by 1/2 inch wide, and start tying them on.  This will take a LONG time.  Seriously.  Plan on twice what you think it should take!  Put on a good movie, or two, and get to work!  I did mine over about 3 evenings of tv watching.

Shamrock Wreath How To

Once your three heart shapes are done, you will bend another hanger into a diamond shape and straighten the hook out.  This will be the frame to which you attach the rest of the wreath.

Use the twist ties to attach the “hearts” to the diamond frame.  It is best to use two per wreath for stability.  Then you flip the wreath over and cover the stem with more “fluff” strips.

Hang and enjoy!  Have a very happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!
