shamrock wreath tutorial
Just follow each step and you’ll be able to make your own wreath! It’s so easy that you’ll want to make one of these every year.
Wrap each wreath.
Begin by securing the open end of the burlap ribbon onto one wreath by using either a dot of hot glue or by pressing a sewing pin through the ribbon and into the foam. This side will be considered the “back” of your wreath.
After the end of the ribbon is secure, wrap the loose end of the ribbon around the wreath until the entire wreath is covered in green. Be sure to keep the ribbon tight as you wrap it to ensure there is no slack. Next, cut the end of the ribbon with enough space that the end of the ribbon will end on the back side of your wreath. Then secure the ribbon to the wreath using either hot glue or a sewing pin.
Next follow the same steps to cover the two additional heart wreaths with green burlap ribbon.
Create a shamrock shape.
Lay out the three heart wreaths in the shape of a clover or shamrock then loop a piece of jute through two of the hearts to join them at their points by tying the jute into a knot. Do the same thing to secure the third heart to the first two creating the shape of a shamrock.
If desired, loop a piece of green burlap ribbon over the jute to hide the string then hot glue the ribbon onto the back of the wreath to secure it in place.
Add hanger and accessorize.
Next, create a hanger for your wreath by cutting a short piece of jute then securing it in the shape of a small loop to the back of your shamrock wreath with hot glue. Create a bow with the burlap ribbon and secure it to the front of your wreath with hot glue or sewing pins.
