I love putting together wreaths and this easy spring wreath works perfectly for St. Patrick’s Day and transitions nicely for an all year wreath by just adding or taking away a little bit of decor.
St Patricks day…I don’t know how I feel about it. As a non drinker, that aspect of fun is out the window. The corned beef and cabbage, sure I can get on board with eating that once a year. The wearing of green to avoid being pinched, okay that’s kinda fun. The whole “kiss me, I’m Irish” well I’m a whole lotta Irish, but there are only a very select few that I want kissing me. 😉 I do like the lucky aspect, because I really do feel so lucky for all that I have, I’m on board. The sneaky little leprechauns playing tricks and leaving treats…this is why we have the elf on the shelf people! More work for moms right? As a kid I loved the whole wearing green and setting traps though, so I know as far as a non drinking mama goes…this holiday is for my kids.
I don’t want my decor for the month to look like kids stuff though and it feels like a lot of St Patricks day decor is SO over the top! I was on a mission to make my St Patricks Day mantel and decor more on the pretty side rather than obnoxious. This easy spring wreath is just what I was looking for.
Easy Spring Wreath for St Patricks Day
This is the easiest wreath I have ever put together! Took less than 10 minutes, and can be used all spring, not just St Patricks Day! Obviously we need green, but another common color for this holiday? Gold! I can get behind that color! So I pulled out my gold and white polka dot wrapping paper and cut about a 2 inch strip off and folded it in half. I get my wrapping paper almost exclusively at TJ Maxx, they always have something cute and it’s excellent quality, just my two cents. There’s a cute gold and white polka dot tissue paper on Amazon that would also be perfect for this.
I cut little triangles out of the paper and then attached them to a gold ribbon using my tape runner to make a super quick and easy mini banner. Practically free and super cute!
The rest of the supplies were inexpensive finds at the craft store.
I took the greenery and just tucked it into the wreath hiding the stems and tucking random stems into the branches on each side.
I used some jute to tie the greenery on in a couple places, it blends in very nicely.
Then I just hung the banner across the wreath. So simple, and I think it turned out very pretty and understated, just how I wanted it.
Hang it on your door or on a wreath stand on the mantel.
