St. Patrick’s Day is such a fun holiday to decorate for! Leprechauns, Rainbows, and pots of gold make this holiday just a little more magical than the rest. I found a similar wreath like this on Etsy selling for nearly $30! This adorable, and super easy, St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Wreath will charm anyone who comes in your front door, and you can make it for around $5! It’s so easy to make, you don’t have to be crafty to make it adorable!
2 rolls of orange tulle
12″ green floral foam wreath form
Green foam sheet
Yellow self-sticking foam sheet
Black self-sticking foam sheet
Hot glue gun
Using a permanent marker, give yourself a guideline for how high you will want the tulle to go. You don’t need to do the full circle, since you will be covering part of it with a hat. The space you leave, will determine the size of hat, so keep that in mind when your marking your guidelines. Cut your tulle into 10″ strips. One strip at a time, tie them around the wreath, knotting it twice. Layer and overlap the tulle onto itself as you tie for full coverage of the wreath form. This will be time consuming. I did this while watching TV with my family one evening, and it went by quickly.
This should be what your wreath looks like when you finish with the tulle. Plug your glue gun in before we begin the next steps, to make sure it’s hot and ready to go when you need it. Cut out a top hat from the green foam sheet that’s as wide as the space you didn’t tie tulle. Then cut a black strip to be the hat band. Stick it to the hat, and trim around the edges, so the black strip doesn’t overlap the edges of the top hat. Cut out a yellow square to act as the hat buckle, and stick it on top of the black hat band.
Use the hot glue gun to attach the hat to the foam wreath. Line it up to make sure it covers all the exposed green portions of the wreath form. Allow the glue to cool before hanging it. Use a normal wreath hanger to hang your adorable St. Patrick’s Day Leprechaun Wreath on your door!
