I love decorating my house for each holiday and season. As soon as Valentine’s Day hits, I break out the green glitter playdough and get all my St. Patrick’s Day items out to change up the decor around the house.
Each year I like to DIY something special for my home. This year I thought I would keep with the farmhouse theme I have going and make a fabric wreath for our front door. I found some adorable shamrock fabric and paired it with some classic green for a fun shamrock wreath.
This project was a bit time consuming, but it wasn’t hard at all. You can get your kids involved and make it a fun family project.

How to make a Shamrock Wreath
1. Measure and cut your 3 yards of fabric into 1.5” x 7” strips of fabric.
2. Tie on strips of fabric on your wire wreath in a pattern (green polka dot, shamrock, lime green) one at a time starting on the outer edge and working your way in.
3. Keep tiring your fabric strips on in a pattern once section at a time.
4. When your wreath is full cut a piece of fabric that is 34” x 7” from your 1/4” yard green polka dot fabric.
5. Fold the vertical sides in and iron in place making the fabric look like a strip of 3” wide ribbon.
6. Place your strip of fabric through the center of the wreath and tie the ends into a knot. Pull the knot behind the wreath and your wreath is ready to hang.
