Better late than never, right? :) Hello again EIGHTY TWO followers! Here are some quick St. Patrick's Day decorations I made using materials from the Dollar Tree.
(Seriously, I highly recommend shopping their for your crafting needs! Here in Little Rock we have a Dollar Tree right next to Michael's and around the corner from Hobby Lobby. They must think I am crazy because I go to Dollar Tree to see what they have, then to Hobby Lobby and Michael's to get inspiration, and then back to Dollar Tree to buy the supplies I need. Often times I will see that Dollar Tree has the EXACT same things as Michael's and Hobby Lobby. Did I mention that everything at Dollar Tree is ONE dollar?!!)
Ok, back at the ranch...St. Patrick's Day decor
I made this wreath using a pack of shamrocks that came in 4 colors. Just hot glued it onto a mini wreath form!
These shamrocks came in a pack of 8. I used them all over the house. The little wooden shamrocks are from a broken wreath from Target. I asked the cashier if I could buy all of the broken pieces for a quarter and he said yes!
I originally used the green and gold beads and made a swag for the scrolly thing over the TV. After living with it for a week, I scratched the idea :)
I moved the shamrocks onto the Amaryllis pots.
Here is another identical wreath I made. I tied a red ribbon to hand it. It looked so pretty!
I used a shamrock wire garland around the candles to make a candle wreath. Later I pulled the shamrocks off the wire garland and sprinkled them around the candle.
These large felt shamrocks were a buck. I especially love them because they are swirly! :)
The inside of the house was looking purdy, so I wanted to make a wreath for the door.
A co worker bought two straw wreaths for me for only 50 cents each! I painted it green with craft paint. (Next year I am going to wrap them in ribbon instead)
Love this fun shamrock!
They had several different sayings. Can you believe this was a buck? At Hobby Lobby it would easily be 10 bucks!
I hot glued the shamrock and then the sign, and voila!
Happy St. Patrick's Day from a part, part, part, Irish girl :)
