Hang a little luck o’ the Irish on your front door! Turn a boring boxwood wreath into a festive St Patricks Day wreath with two simple accents.
I am doing holiday wreath round-ups this year, and it has been a lot of fun to see what cute ideas are out there. But as I was looking for St Patricks Day wreaths a few weeks ago, I was sorely disappointed. It seemed like all the wreaths wreaths were either a gaudy green deco-mesh explosion, or only vaguely St Patricks Day-ish.
I had a fun idea to just modify my existing Boxwood Wreath (from my Easy Faux Boxwood Wreath DIY post), and give it a bit more “Luck o’ the Irish”. Boxwood already has a clover-ish look to it, so I thought it would be perfect!
This wreath is definitely on the bold and playful side. I love wreaths that my kids get excited about too. Its such a fun and simple way to decorate for the holidays!
How to Make an Easy St Patricks Day Wreath
I found some plastic gold coins at the Dollar Tree and then ordered this awesome rainbow ribbon from Amazon and voila!
Ideally, I wanted the St Patricks Day accents to be easily removed after the holiday was over. I thought it would be best to just stick them into the boxwood somehow, instead of glueing them in.
For the coins, I just hot glued them onto the end of a bamboo skewer (broken in half) and let them cool. All I had to do was slip them into the greenery/grapevine! They seem to be staying just fine, even with my kids typical door slamming.
And I made a quick bow (I need to do a post on wreath bows!) and wired it onto the wreath. I keep going back and forth about whether I like the bow on the top or the side. And I’m toying with the idea of a more loopy bow with skinnier ribbon. You can just go so many directions with bows.
Love it! It’ll be perfect for March. Now on to finishing the St Patricks Day Wreath Round-up!
If you make one, I’d love to see it! Tag me @thehowtomom on IG or tag #thehowtomomwreaths, so I can tell you how great it turned out! 🙂
