Hello all! St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and 16 of my favorite bloggers got together to share St. Patty’s Day Crafts on a Budget! We were given a budget of no more than $10 and we were challenged to create a St. Patrick’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. Here is how I made my Dollar Store Mesh Wreath!
St Patricks Day Dollar Store Mesh Wreath
- 2 Rolls white 6inch Deco Mesh $2
- 1-2 Rolls Green Burlap Ribbon $2
- St. Patrick’s Gold Coins $1
- Gold Curling Ribbon $1
- Large felt Shamrock $1
- Tinsel Shamrock $1
- Wire Wreath $1
- Pipe Cleaners
- Hot glue & gun
- Sharp scissors
Add two pipe cleaners per section of the wire wreath.
Take the end of the roll of deco ribbon and fold the end of the ribbon under and pinch the end together.
Secure the pinched end to a pipe cleaner turning the pipe cleaner three times to make it snug. Bunch up around 8-10 inches of the mesh and pinch another section and secure it to the next pipe cleaner. Secure the ribbon all the way around the wreath. Trim at the end and turn that end under and secure with a pipe cleaner.
Add the green burlap ribbon in the same manner of the deco mesh ribbon. Weave in and out of the deco mesh with the green ribbon.
Not shown: I added another row of deco mesh to the center of the wreath to hide the wire base. Add one pipe cleaner per section and repeat the above steps.
Take five 12 inch strips of the gold curling ribbon and bunch it together. Tie the ribbon around the ribbon base in 5 sections. Curl the ribbon by sliding scissors down the strands.
Hot glue the gold coins to the ends of every other pipe cleaner to add bling. Curl the remaining pipe cleaners with a pencil.
Place the felt shamrock over the wreath and hot glue it down to the mesh. For added security, hot glue a pipe cleaner to the back of your shamrock and the tie it the wire wreath. Hot glue the tinsel shamrock to the felt shamrock.
Fluff and arrange the ribbons and hang it up! And that’s it! So easy and super cute for nine bucks!
