INSIDE: Re-purpose Dollar Store green ribbon and shamrock headbands into easy and cheap DIY St. Patrick’s Day front door wreath decor.
Want a good challenge? Stand in front of the seasonal holiday decorations and doh dads at your local dollar store. You may find yourself standing there for a good 10 minutes overwhelmed by all the things. Until you’ve realized your preschooler has gotten bored and wandered off to toys. #momoftheyear
So there I stood, perplexed by what dollar store item I could re-purpose, into some crafty St. Patrick’s Day decor. I already had a wreath form and the world’s largest ball of green yarn at home. These items were going to be my Irish crafting base as I sought to bring some good luck to my front door.
So what did I purchase? Two sparkly ribbon headbands with spring-coiled four leaf clovers. And here’s how these St. Patrick’s Day headbands were turned into a wreath…
How to Make a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath from Shamrock Headbands

– Two (2) shamrock headband with ribbon streamers (Don’t have a dollar store near you? You can buy them here)
– St. Patrick’s Day bandana
– Gold coines
– Green yard
– Hot glue gun
– Straight pins
Make a St. Patrick’s Day Wreath with Cheap Shamrock Headbands
I had a great (albeit not-so-well-thought-out) idea to wrap the entire foam wreath form with the green yarn. Until I realized how time-consuming this would be.
Instead, I haphazardly covered the wreath with yarn, leaving much of the white foam exposed.
I pulled the ribbon off of the headbands. And somehow managed to twist and pulled the coiled shamrocks off as well. Plain green plastic headband = new project!
I gathered the bandana in half and used a straight pin to secure it to the top of the foam wreath.
I then pinned the ribbon streamers on top of the bandana, also using straight pins. (You can just as easily use a hot glue gun to do this.)

Pin (or glue) the shamrocks to the top of the wreath.
What’s St. Patrick’s Day without some good luck bling? Glue a handful of gold coins to the ribbons.
Wreath me, I’m Irish!
