St. Patricks Day Wreath

It's not everyday that white carnations tipped in a kelly green color speak to me....but they did.





Not that I am even Irish, although I would love to go to Ireland one day and I love Colin Farrell's accent, but something inside the Dollar Tree on that particular day, told me that I should make something that would make even my non-irish eyes smile...so I did.

Supplies Needed for Carnation Wreath
1 clapboard wreath form
5 bunches of faux carnations ( I got mine from the Dollar Store )
Hot glue gun
White paint
Craft scissors

Step 1
Spray your wreath form white, this way it blends with the flowers a bit more.

Step 2
Snip the stem of the flowers off with the scissors. This is so when you glue the flowers on the wreath , they will lay flat.


Step 3
Begin gluing down the flower tips around your wreath form. Place the flowers as close to each other side by side. 


Step 4
If you have any holes, fill those with your extra flower tips, if not, your done.

Step 5
Hang your wreath listening to Irish Eyes Are Smiling sung by this absolutely beautiful voice here.


And I leave you with this......
May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more.
May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door...with your beautiful carnation wreath of course.

Grateful for~
Wonderful family time over the weekend
