You don’t have to be a crafter to make this easy St. Patrick’s Day wreath. All it took was two rolls of tulle, a shamrock wreath form, and some ribbon. Oh, and I used a little hot glue too. Watch the video below.

Putting it Together
Wrap the tulle around the wire form. I wrapped the two colors together. You’ll need a bit of hot glue here and there to help hold the tulle in place, especially around the curvy parts.
Cut the tulle into about 2-yard lengths to make it easier to handle. The tulle doesn’t have to be smooth, hold it sort of snugly, but not too tightly. Wrap until the wire is no longer visible.
When you have gone around the form, end the tulle off by tucking it in on the back and securing it with a bit of glue.
Make a simple bow, I made three loops but could have gotten by with just two and probably could have made it a little bit smaller. Secure the bow with floral wire. The green and gold pom pom ribbon just adds a little bit of dimension to the bow. It’s wired, so you can curl those ends around.
All done! Now you have a cute little St. Patrick’s Day wreath and you didn’t spend a lot of money or time. The finished wreath is about 16″ x 18 and it’s not very deep so it’s a great size for a storm door and it’s light as a feather.
There was a little bit of tulle left over, and of course ribbon since I started with new rolls. The leftover tulle is perfect for making bows for gift packages. Especially when you need to tie on a fluffy bow on gift sacks.
