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.
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!
