Madigan made… a St. Patty’s Day wreath (sort of).
Last year I shared a simple ‘lucky’ St. Paddy’s Day printable and I told you that I never decorate my home for the said holiday.
Today is the day I eat those words… Well, kinda.
I’m still not going to bake any green food or make any crafts with shamrocks on them. But I was due to update my ever-changing ceiling medallion wreath this month. I chose to give the medallion a quick coat of green spray paint since it was such a fresh and spring-y color. (Avocado from Valspar)
To honor the Irish flag, I decided to add in some orange and white, too. It seemed like a simple way to semi-decorate for St. Patty’s Day and welcome spring at the same time.
You may recognize the small orange wreath from the black and orange version I made back in October. I recycled it for this month.
I didn’t have any ribbon that felt right, so I created wider ribbon to get the look I wanted. I used craft glue and attached white ribbon onto the edges of pretty orange and green plaid ribbon.
I love that my reference to St. Paddy’s Day is subtle – just in the wreath color scheme.
I can’t wait to hang this wreath on our front door next month. It is still a little chilly here this week – but I’ll probably put the wreath out by next weekend.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for spring! This was my first springtime craft for the year and seeing the soft green color got me excited for warmer weather.
What about you… Have you started to work on any spring projects yet?
I will be sharing this project with these blogs:
