How To Make A St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

Start by carefully wrapping the rainbow ribbon around the wreath form. Use a straight pin to hold the ribbon in place each time you loop it around.

Once you’ve finished looping your ribbon around the wreath form, cut off any excess and use a little hold glue to hold the end of the ribbon in place.

Create a pot of gold by hot gluing the gold coins to the back of the foam cauldron. I picked up my glittery cauldrons at the dollar store, but it’s such a simple shape you could cut your own out of glitter foam from the craft store. 

Attach gold coins and black cauldron to a popsicle stick to hot glue to the wreath.

The foam will need a little support holding up those coins, so gluing popsicle sticks to the back will give it the structure it needs. I glued another foam cauldron on the front and back to make it even sturdier.

Attach your pot of gold, along with some shamrock decorations, to your wreath with hot glue.

You can hang your wreath with more rainbow ribbon, but I opted to glue on an old key ring, which makes it easy to hang the wreath from a hook.
