St. Patrick's Day Wreath!!!

St. Patricks Day isnt a big deal around her, but i thought i would make a few decorations for this lovely Green holiday! So this is what i did....
Dollar store wreath and hot glued Pecans all the way around. Spray painted it white. Then for the clover i cut the shape out of card board. We all know streamers for birthday partys, i got 2 rolls for a $ 1 at the dollar store. I fold it in half and with hot glue i just bunched it all close together. WA-La! added some tule and hung it on my pantry door!

Yes some of nuts cracked when i hot glued them on.....and i burnt my finger a few times and said a few choice words...i Dislike the glue gun!

Cute! I love how everything you make is so inexpensive! I'm always thinking I need TONS of money to decorate. Suggestion: Something BIG, like a wall-hanging? I like BIG things on my walls but those are the most expensive. :)

So clever! Love that idea. I agree, glue guns hurt and cause me to say bad things!

Michelle @ Sweet Something said...
