Lucky Clover Wreath


St. Patrick's Day is almost here! Get ready to pinch or be pinched.  While browsing Pinterest I found the idea for this wreath on this blog and loved it! I added a few things of my own such as the gold clovers and the mossy stuff.  Seriously guys... This mossy stuff is totes cray-cray (don't judge me, I only say it because I hate it ;))  anyways...It makes a total mess! I seriously felt like I was on the set of Ferngully. Here's a picture to prove my point... This stuff literally has tiny rocks in it!


Supplies

  • 1 straw wreath (3.99)
  • 3 different shades of green felt (1 sheet each) (.25 each)
  • Felt in the colors of the rainbow (1 sheet each) (.25 cents each)
  • Super moss sheet (2 square ft) (3.20)
  • 1 sheet gold felt (1.47)
  • Wire for hanging banner
  • Glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Total Cost = $12.88
Directions
  1. Measure the width of your wreath, mine was 8" around, and cut strips of the moss one inch shorter (7")
     

  2. Then cut the moss in strips to help it lay better on the wreath
  3. Using a hot glue gun, glue the strips of moss onto your wreath.  It won't go on perfectly, it's sort of like filling in a puzzle and cutting pieces to fit in empty spaces. (PS.  Told you it makes a mess!)
  4. For the clovers, cut out hearts and snip a piece out from the bottom.  Then place a tiny blob of glue on the tip and lay the other side on top...
  5. Next glue the smaller "leaf" on top of the bigger "leaf" and glue all three leaves together
  6. Make more clovers in all shapes, sizes, and colors!
  7. As for the banner, just print off a triangle from your computer to use as a template for your felt.  Make them sort of diamond shaped so you can bend them over wire
  8. Hot glue them to wire or string
  9. Glue the clovers and the banner to your mossy wreath and your done!
