Man am I slacking this month!  I’ve finally gotten around to finishing up this St. Patty’s Day Wreath…only to turn around and change it again for Spring in just a couple of days.

St Patty Chalkboard Wreath

Anyway, remember the $3 Valentine’s Monkey Love Wreath that I reused from the Disney Inspired Christmas Wreath which was originally

the $10 Thanksgiving wreath?  Well, yes, I have yet again remade the same wreath for yet another holiday!

Seriously, I don’t have space to store a wreath for every season and I my tastes change from year to year.  So, I have found it most cost effective (and fun- and Earth friendly) to reduce, reuse, and recycle the same wreath over and over again.

I originally bought this vine wreath from Hobby Lobby for about $6 (that’s the price without the coupon- you can get it even cheaper).  All the accessories I’ve bought from the Dollar Tree or Target’s dollar section….so the decorations for these wreaths have only cost about $3-$5 each holiday…..MUCH cheaper than buying a new wreath each season!

The Dollar Tree had these large clovers but I wasn’t a fan of the picture on the so I thought it would be cute to paint a chalkboard coating over it- since chalkboard is ALL the rage now!

I also found a cute scarf that I decided to use as ribbon/tulle around the wreath and these adorable foam clovers- they were already glittered up so I didn’t have to do a thing to them!

And, of course, right in the middle of this project I killed my glue gun!  That’s why it’s taken me so long to finish it up and get it posted—that is a rather interesting story entitled Dead Glue Gun, Sippy Cups, and the Dishwasher….I think the story is the PERFECT way to illustrate the journey to survive toddlerhood!

Bye for now! Where I Shop- (1)
Thrive Market - It's like the Costco of organics...this is where I get all of my sugar, flour, baking supplies, kids snacks, etc.
Zaycon Foods- This is where I buy most of my meat products in bulk.  The quality is amazing and the prices just can't be beat!  I mean, $1.89 a pound for boneless all-natural chicken breasts!!  It is bulk but you can always split with a friend or make up a bunch of freezer meals like I do!
