So remember the other day when I said I wasn’t feeling inspired by St. Patrick’s Day? Well, turns out, I was! I managed to get to the craft store. I had a short list of a couple of things to grab but then I took a little time to wander the aisles and for whatever reason, as it is for creativity, at that particular moment I was full of ideas.

Like I said though, St. Patrick’s Day and the color green are not my favorite, but when I was standing in front of the felt I started thinking about springtime and green grass and I dreamed up this wreath–fluffy green grass with shamrocks nestled inside.

Because really, you guys, I am soooo over winter. 

Maybe it was standing outside the cold snow all morning? I don’t really know, but it made me dream of when I was little at soccer games, when I was waiting on the sidelines for my turn to play we’d sit in the sun on the grass and look for flowers and four leaf clovers. And so I made this wreath later that day and I love it and now I’m thinking maybe I DO like St. Patrick’s Day after all!Make this adorable St. Patrick's Day Shamrock wreath with felt, it's a fun and easy project!

  4. cassie, you are so absolutely clever 🙂 love this project! just seeing the wreath by itself looks like it would take so much work and/or that it came straight from a store (it looks so good!), but you simplified it in your tutorial! love! thanks for sharing! 😀
