Create a Wreath for St. Patty’s Day
This is a fun craft idea that anyone can do. Just grab a plain wreath, some green like a couple feather green boas, a few gold coins, some shamrocks and even some tiny leprechaun hats. Wrap the boas around the wreath, paste the shamrocks, hats and coins around the wreath and finish off with a gold bow. So easy and cute! Another option is to get an orange boa, a leprechaun hat and a wreath. Put the hat on the top and wrap the boa around the bottom like a beard. So cute!
Pot of Gold
