A leprechaun wreath is the perfect way to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day! Leprechauns, Rainbows, and pots of gold make this holiday just a little more magical than the rest.
I found a similar wreath on Etsy – but they wanted more than $20. I like my style much more and the cost was more in line with my budget!
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!

HOW TO MAKE A ST. PATRICK’S DAY LEPRECHAUN WREATH
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
To start, you need to determine how high up on the wreath you would like the beard to go. Use a permanent marker and make a mark so you know where to start and top. Keep in mind you will have a hat you place on the top, so the beard does not need to go completely around the wreath form.
You can see how I marked mine, and can use that as a guide when marking your own.
Next, cute the orange tulle into 10″ strips. Tie them around the wreath, one at a time, knotting it twice. Layer and overlap the tulle onto itself as you tie for full coverage of the wreath form. This part will take some time to complete.
Your wreath should look something like this when you are done.
The final step is to add a hat. Cut out the shape from your green foam that is at least as wide as the space you did not cover with tulle.
Then, cut out a black strip for the band. Make sure it is no wider than the hat (as you do not want the edges to hang over the side). Cut a yellow buckle. Glue both to the hat.
The final step is to use a hot glue gun and attach the hat to the wreath. Make certain your hat covers all the exposed green of the wreath form. Allow to cook and then hang your leprechaun wreath on your front door!
