Long time no blog... I know, I know! I'm back and promise I'll get back on track. I just realized this morning I must be way behind on my 52 week organization! Yikes! Afraid to look at what I missed and what I have to catch up on!
So anyways, I decided this week it was about time to take down my Valentine's Day decorations... I know I'm totally slacking! I needed a new wreath for the back of my front door though... Off to the dollar store I went!
Here is what I got:
I got 4 packs of cut out shamrocks and a wreath form. I already had the mod podge as you've seen from other posts!
So I started off by covering the edges of the form. I did this my overlapping the shamrocks so nothing was showing. I also only used the non glittered ones. No particular reason just my preference!
This was super tricky to keep them from sliding around and sticking to the form. If I had to do it again I would probably use a different glue but I am at a loss as to what I'd use so I can't help you on that!
Once I went all the way around I moved to the inside... For this I precut the shamrocks to fit the inside perfectly.
Once I let it dry a little bit I trimmed the shamrocks that were on the front of the wreath so I had a flatter surface to start applying the glittered shamrocks on.
I did 1 layer of shamrocks and really thought it was turning out great! I wanted a little more though so I added another layer!
I need to take another shot of this at a different angle. I took this as I was running out the door so it isn't the best picture! I really like the way it turned out though!
Total Project Cost: $5
