Easy DIY St. Patrick's Day Décor

If you want some last-minute St. Patrick’s Day decorations, then here are two DIY crafts you can make in a day. Both are great for home or party décor, and because they are made with spring greens, it is possible to make them long past the vacation season.

Jordan from Picklee created this Irish Rose Wreath for under $10. (Find her original tutorial) Her suggestion: If you do not have green fabric, purchase a few old garments in a thrift store rather than new, expensive fabric.

You’ll want:
3 large pieces of green fabric
Hot glue gun
Cardboard for wreath base

1. Cut a wreath base from cardboard. Cover it with fabric, and staple or pin the fabric on so no cardboard is visible from front.

2. Produce the little handmade roses. Cut your fabric into a circle and then cut it into a spiral, gradually getting thicker in the middle. Beginning in the thinner end, roll tightly and pinch the bottom — this will spread the blossom out.

3. Attach your roses into the wreath using a dab of hot glue. Jordan varied the colors to her liking. Until the wreath is coated work.

Hang and enjoy!

Thought of the Week: Storage Goes Glam

Once I see some thing for my house that I I can not manage I generally obsess over it, crunch some numbers, lament my want of funds… and and finally ignore it. Not Tina Sindahl. All that electricity is used by her in an infinitely more productive way by determining the best way to create her own and becoming creative.

Sindahl

With a hammer, some upholstery nails as well as an IKEA cupboard, she could create a piece that is nearly identical to the one she fell in love with, but at a portion of the price. Does not it seem unbelievable?
