all things green and springy


I’m going to skip the part where I share how I’ve been meaning to make a St. Patrick’s Day door wreath for years and instead show you the finished product. In a matter of hours and with the final chapters of East of Eden on the ipod, I accomplished this trivial but cheerful assignment. Check it off the list, put it up on the door- just in time- make one for yourself if you like, here’s my tutorial.

The St. Patrick’s Day wool shamrock garland is finished. What is it with me and garlands? I just can’t seem to have too many. This wool shamrock garland was easy to make because I just added the shamrocks- made with various green wools cut into shamrock shapes and embellished with sequins, ribbon and gold tinsel added to the red and orange felted flowers that were already on a string. I hope I don’t regret later that I sewed them all together and want to take it all apart to salvage my beloved felted flowers. I should just learn how to make them and keep a stash in all colors.
Anyway- have a great day, I hope you remembered to wear your green…
