St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and I realized it was time to swap out the Christmassy Wreath for a fun St Patrick’s Day Wreath. I have a large wreath on my fireplace that I like to adapt to each season. I have gotten so quick at changing out the decomesh and trim that I no longer even have to remove the wreath from it’s spot. Lazy or ingenius? you pick
St Patrick’s Day Wreath
First steps are always De-seasonailing the wreath, OK not a real word but you know what I mean right? I remove all of the seasonal trim. Lately I have left the burlap as a base, it adds an added dimension. Decomesh has been my trim of choice over the past few years. It adds a fullness to the wreath. Plus such an affordable trim to help you change out every season.
Constructing the Wreath
After removing the seasonal trim, I started with adding a decomesh in a seasonal colour. Today’s colour of choice of course was green. St Patrick’s Day Green. Looping the decomesh is very simple. It’s a personal preference always of where you want to loop the mesh and how you want it to look.
Next I add some colourful carnations and fun trim.
There you have it, sparkly shamrocks, a few leprechauns and carnations and my wreath is complete. Do you normally decorate for every Holiday or only the big ones? I find that having the wreath sets the stage in the family room. It’s the focal point of the room and sets a seasonal stage.
