St. Patrick's Day Wreath

This is the cutest small St. Patrick’s Day wreath.

You will need:

  • Mini wreath frame
  • Green fuzzy sticks
  • Shamrock scatter foam
  • Green ribbon(optional)
  • Hot glue

This wreath may be any size. I chose to make a mini wreath for this project. The wire frame for this little wreath is 8 1/4" in diameter. The nice thing about a mini wreath is that it requires fewer supplies, and you may place it anywhere.

Step 1

Wrap green fuzzy stick through and around wire lines. Choose any pattern you wish. I picked light green, and three dark green stripes. The shiny ones give a good effect as well.
