I’m back with another seasonal wreath and this time we’re going green with a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath. Made with green bandanas and a big gold buckle, this wreath is begging to bring good luck to your front door.
I’m challenging myself to reuse a wreath form rather than having a new form for each wreath. This way all materials can be reused for different projects and my wreath bin stays the same size. I also took the opportunity to reuse my black bow with gold buckle from my Santa Wreath.

How to Make a Bandana Wreath
A straw or foam wreath form works best for this method of a DIY bandana wreath.
Wrap the wreath form with the bandanas and secure the bandanas to the backside of the form with the pins. I made my St. Patrick’s Day wreath have some texture by layering the bandanas and letting them lay slightly loose.
Secure the faux flowers and foliage to the wreath form using more pins to hold in place. Instead of cutting my stems, I wrapped them around the bottom of the wreath form so I can still use them as long stems later.
Create a bow with gold buckle and attach to wreath with wire or more ribbon.

Hang the St. Patrick’s Day Wreath using more black ribbon or a wreath hanger.
That’s a wrap on the St. Patrick’s Day wreath…have some green beer for me.

The St. Patricks’ Wreath is lovely.
If I can purchase green bandanas her (Ireland) I shall try to make one for next Patricks Feast day.
Thank you for the tutorial.
I think that’s a wonderful idea :) Send pics!
