This has been a rough and busy week for me. I had such high hopes of getting numerous recipes finished and written up. I also had to get my post for Manilla.com written up as well for this week. There are a ton and a half of craft projects in various stages of completion on my craft table and I am trying to get everything ready for the cruise, which I leave for in like 26 days. Sadly though you know how life goes. When you are trying to do a ton of things is always when things seem to go the most wrong. Like your cell phone breaks thanks to the kids or your stove decides to stop working altogether and then you have to scramble to come up with new recipes for jobs and one of your two photography lights gets knocked down and breaks so your pictures aren’t so hot. Yes, it’s been that kind of week. So hopefully next week improves. I have a new cell phone now and the stove is being repaired so this should make my life easier. I just need to purchase some new photography lights and all will then be right in my little world. 

Since I was limited to what I could do this week with no stove I did get some no-bake recipes created (look for those in coming days and weeks) and I was able to work on an easy kids craft with my daughter to keep her occupied and to give us all a brief break from watching Disney’s Frozen yet again or listening to “Let It Go”. I love them both but sometimes you just need a break. Since I had a lot of St. Patrick’s Day craft items lying about I helped her make an easy kids St. Patrick’s Day Irish banner. It came out really cute and she was super proud of it.

St. Patrick’s Day Wreath

St. Patrick's Day Wreath

FTC DisclosureYesterday it was supposed to snow again here in Chicago. I was not feeling that and wanted to do something that would move my mind towards spring. I decided to work on a St. Patrick’s Day wreath for my front door. I figured if fun, festive St. Patrick’s Day couldn’t get me out of my winter blahs then nothing would.

It worked! By the time I finished, my table and I were both completely covered in glitter and honestly, glitter just makes me smile like a five-year old. In fact, my five-year old was playing in it. It was all kinds of fun! We were tossing it around calling it pixie dust and just like all things like this, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt. That’s right there was an injury. I took some glitter to the eye when I rubbed my eye with my glitter covered hands. Can I just say, that hurts!

Anyway, I really like the wreath! It is very much in keeping with the whole vibe of St. Patrick’s Day. You know, that means it’s got lots of green, gold, sparkle and shamrocks. So if you are looking for a quick project to get your home ready for St. Patrick’s Day then try this one. I had it done in under an hour.

St. Patrick's Day Wreath

Supplies:

3 6 yd. spools of 5″-6″ tulle (I used glitter tulle in green, light green and gold)
1 10″ styrofoam wreath
green ribbon
shamrock embellishments (I used Jolee’s Boutique)
scissors
ruler
hot glue gun and glue sticks

Instructions:

Cut the tulle into 10″ long pieces. Tie pieces evenly onto the wreath leaving the knots and excess on the outside of the wreath. Using the hot glue gun attach the ribbon to the back of the wreath to hang it and glue on the shamrocks.

This is a super easy project that anyone can make to get themselves into the St. Patrick’s Day spirit.
