So, since I couldn't find an adorably cheesy St. Patrick's Day wreath, I decided to MAKE one. Take that, Easter!
I was wandering around the Dollar Store, looking for ideas, when I remembered seeing this post from Serendipity Refined around Valentine's Day:
Dollar Store Valentine's Wreath - via Pinterest
Here's the photo run-through of how I assembled this cute, festive wreath for only $3!
Gather Materials - yes, there are supplies for an Easter wreath, too. ;)
Start with the wreath form and loofahs - I scored with this gigantic ombre one.
Cut the loofah apart. This was surprisingly fun to do!
Crazy how much goes into a loofah ;)
I used the palest green to wrap my wreath form. I just used a dot of hot glue at the beginning and end.
Next, I started gluing the loofah pieces onto the wreath, making sure they weren't spread too thin so that it would fluffy and full looking.
I alternated between lighter and darker greens.
Ta da! A giant round loofah!
I was a little skeptical at this point, since it DID look like a giant loofah.
Enter these foam shamrocks
I just alternated colors and hot glued them in place.
I added one to the top, too, since it was looking a little naked.
And there we go! All finished!
This wreath took me approximately fifteen minutes to make. And a whopping three bucks. :)
The best part is, I know it's water proof, thanks to the loofahs!
I'll mark this down as a Pinterest success! Here's another look at the wreath bringing some cheer to our front door:
What have you done to decorate for St. Patrick's Day? Or are you jumping right over to Easter?
