St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

What You Need:

  • Foam ring
  • Twine
  • Fake flowers
  • Green ribbon
  • Scissors

Directions:

  1. Tie the twine in a knot around the foam ring. Wrap twine around the ring until it is covered three-fourths of the way. Cut the twine with scissors and tie it off.
  2. Cut the stem of the fake flowers so there is only 1 ½ inches of stem left. Stick the stem into the exposed part of the foam ring. 
  3. Repeat step two until there is no foam visible.
  4. Tie a bow with the green ribbon onto the foam ring.
  5. Hang the wreath on your door.

What You Need:

  • Clover foam shapes

  • Pennies 

Directions:

  1. Cut string to desired length and hot glue the clover shapes to the string, spacing them out evenly along the string.
