While shopping at Joann’s, I was looking at a pair of over-the-knee, striped, St. Patrick’s Day socks, with black lace trim, and asked my husband,
“Do you think I could pull these off?”
“Green is not your color,” he wisely replied.
I kept looking through the rest of the Shamrock themed decorations and found a wreath I really liked. It was made of wooden cut-out hearts, and decorated with Shamrocks. I looked at it closer and realized they were stickers!
They wanted $25.00 for a wooden wreath with stickers!
I had a wooden wreath, made with heart-shaped pieces, in my garage. I decided I would just make my own. Only, I didn’t have any stickers. I got out my St. Patrick’s Day decorations and found these.
I cut a heart shape out of one of the cupcake papers and glued it to the top heart in the wreath. After removing the plastic picks, I glued the Shamrocks and Lucky stickers on to my wreath. I ended up with the same wreath for free!
When you look at it from the street, you cannot tell it is just a wooden wreath with stickers!
Look around your home before you buy a new decoration. You just might have what you need to make it yourself.
