Yarn Chain St. Patty's Wreath - finished wreath hanging on an exterior wallI love anything green. Being part Irish I too love the month of March. This wreath is super easy to make if you crochet. If you don't, you might find someone to do that for you.

Steps:

I want to explain something before I show you how to make this wreath. My apt. is tiny. So I have started making things, with the ability to 'dismantle' them and create something else with the basic elements of the craft. Because of that, you might see me using pins instead of hot glue. I might tie things instead of pinning them, etc. This month's St. Patty's Day wreath will be next month's Easter wreath, etc. It won't represent everything I do, but it will a lot.

  1. Using your fabric, cut strips of your choosing. Pin them around till the form is covered.
  2. Yarn Chain St. Patty's Wreath - cut strips of fabric and begin wrapping around the foam wreath form

  3. For the crocheted chain, I did it for 28 stitches or approximately 7 inches. That was the perfect length to wrap around the form and tie in a knot. You don't want more than a 1" tail. You will see five colors in the photos, but I ran out of basic green and had to just use the white, light green, darker green, and darkest green. It's important to start with a sequence and stay with it.

  5. When you have enough on there, trim all the tails.

  7. Now even tho' my wreath has all the tails on the outer ring, I wanted to give you 3 other ways to do it. The first is all the tails on the inside. Then alternating one outside and one inside. The last is a bit more complicated but it's basically you twist each one so that it's a spiral around the whole wreath. I gave you a sample of each section so I didn't have to change the whole thing for each shot.

  9. For the shamrocks, I chained 8 and slip stitched back on 7. Then chain 3, treble and double and treble and chain three again, slip stitching into the end of the stem. Repeat just two more times, then tie off in the back. I made 2 of each color, but then decided to just use two, the brightest and the darkest. I tied the flowers together and pinned them on.

  11. I then put three strands of ribbon in the back and tied a big bow in front. Then the two shamrocks on the front. It is a labor of love and yours will be too. But it's still pretty cool. N-JOY!!
