I can't believe St. Patrick's Day is here already! I had so many decorations I wanted to make and crafts to do with Ree. I managed to make 2 decorations. Ree & I haven't done any crafts! I had better start Easter crafting tomorrow!
I had pinned this simple shamrock banner from Simple as That awhile ago. Then I came across an adapted version of the banner at Lil' Luna's blog. I ended up using the neat maps of Ireland she posted as the background and her idea for the 3-d shamrocks. I backed the map with green cardstock; and strung it all on white ribbon. I like it on our mantle.
I knew I wanted to make a St. Patrick's Day wreath for our front door. It took me almost all month to think of something to do. A few days ago I traced shamrocks onto watercolor paper then painted them with different shades of green watercolor. After they dried I cut them out. I then hot glued them to a wreath frame and voila! I like the way it looks on our front door. Simple but easy and I used everything I already had. All in all it probably took an hour to put together including the drying of the watercolor.
