This past weekend we went to a St. Patrick's parade here in St. Louis. St. Patrick's is a big deal here. We has a really fun time at the parade. My kids' favorite thing was to get all the "stuff" that gets handed out. Candy, stickers, hats, and beads.
Some of the beads came with these big shamrocks on them.
I thought they would be perfect to finish up a wreath I had made.
I had extra dollar store shamrock garland leftover from my topiary, so I just wrapped it around a wreath I had picked up awhile ago at Goodwill. Then I tied the ribbon on. But it didn't look finished until I added the shamrocks from the parade. I took the shamrock off the beads and glued the chipboard letters on, then glued in onto the wreath.
Just in time for St. Pat's! I am doing some fun things tomorrow with my kids, lots of green food, a leprechaun visitor, and some crafts. Should be fun!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
