It’s the season of crisp green and glittery gold, rainbows and great big pots of gold. Oh, and of course the cute little guys with full beards and cool hats. Yep…you guessed it, it is St. Patrick’s season and today Cherie is sharing a super fun and festive wreath inspired by nothing but green shamrocks, green ribbon and lots of glittery goodness. This fun wreath is great for welcoming Leprechauns and other good luck fortunes to your front door or to hang on your wall or display among your other St. Patrick’s Day inspired decor. Enjoy!
This wreath is the best because I got to use all different kinds of adorable ribbon!! I just love the sparkle ribbon and the sequins!! I’m going to take all the guess work away for you and tell you exactly how to make this fun wreath. This one is for St. Patrick’s Day, but you can choose any ribbon for any occasion or holiday!
- 21 strips of 1 1/2″ ribbon cut to 18 1/2″
- 34 strips of 7/8″ ribbon cut to 18″
- 17 strips of 3/8″ ribbon cut to 17″
- 14″ Form Wreath
- Stiff ‘n’ Stuff or Spray Starch
Get a plain foam wreath. I used a 14″ which is a good average size.
Cut your 21 pieces of 1 1/2″ ribbon to 18 1/2″. Cut each end in a V cut and seal the ends. Tie the ribbons around the wreath. They don’t need to be close together.
Fill in the gaps with your strips of 7/8″ ribbon. Make sure they are also V cut and sealed.
Now add the 3/8″ ribbon wherever you feel like it. They are mainly there to add interest and texture. I cut these small ribbons at an angle instead of in a V.
Here’s where the Stiff ‘n’ Stuff or Spray Starch comes in. Lay the wreath down flat and spray all the ribbon fringe. Comb out the ribbons and situate them the way you want them to stay. You can blow dry it if you are in a hurry or let it dry for about an hour. This is an important step for the top of the wreath because this helps the ribbons stay upright and not flopping over.
This was super fun to make and it’s even more fun to look at! I’m already thinking of different ribbon combinations for different seasons and holidays!
Thank you Cherie! I am in love with this adorable green-a-licious wreath! That ribbon, those sparkles, that sea of green is just plain yummy!
