Easy, St. Patrick’s Day Green Daisy Wreath to DIY

Designer Kathleen George is sharing another easy St. Patrick’s Day craft today. Her pretty, St. Patrick’s Day Green Daisy Wreath uses the same pre-cut flowers as the St. Patrick’s Day Daisy Topiary, so you can whip it up fast. Don’t they make a pretty pair together? We’ve been having a debate about this St. Patrick’s Day Wreath, too, and I’d love to have your opinion. Bu first, let’s make a wreath.

These are so stinkin' cute & easy for St. Patrick's Day! CraftsnCoffee.com

To make a St. Patrick’s Day Green Daisy Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 9” wreath
  • Acrylic craft paint in green
  • Pre-cut flowers, three – four bags (We found these at Oriental Trading Co.)
  • Scrapbook paper, one sheet of yellow
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Low-temp glue gun
  • Green ribbon, 8”
  • Optional: Gold coins and additional green ribbon
  • Tools needed: Scissors; stiff paintbrush; small flower paper punch
So sweet! It's an easy wreath to DIY, too. Tutorial on CraftsnCoffee.com.

Remove the coins after St. Patrick’s Day for an all-season wreath.

To make a St. Patrick’s Day Green Daisy Wreath:

1. Paint the wreath green. Let dry.

2. Glue medium and large flowers to the wreath ring, overlapping till the wreath is almost covered. It’s o.k. if there are a few small, bare spots, as you’ll add a few more flowers in the next. step.

3. Glue a small flower in the center of each large flower. Add a few more small flowers to the wreath, to cover up any bare spots.

4. Punch out yellow centers for the flowers using a small flower paper punch. Glue yellow centers to the middle of each flower.

5. Knot together the ends of an 8” length of ribbon. Pin and glue the knot to the back of the wreath for a hanger.

6. Optional: Cut four, 10” lengths of ribbon. Glue a gold coin to one end of each ribbon. Knot together the other ends, and pin and glue the ribbons to the center of the wreath.

With coins . . .

Now, for the debate. Do you like the wreath with or without the coins? I kind of like the coins, but there are a few people around here don’t agree. Once St. Patrick’s Day is over, you could remove the ribbon streamers and use it as a spring wreath.

And without coins.

Here they are side-by-side. Which one do you prefer?

    What a beautiful way to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day! I wanted to let you know that I am starting to feature creative women like you and wanted my first feature to be this stunning wreath! I will be linking to this from my site on Tuesday, March 11th if you don’t mind.

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you so much, Alyssa! I’m honored! (And of course, all the kudos go to designer Kathleen George.) Good luck with your new blog, too. Looks like fun. Sharon

    Coins totally make it St Paddy’s Day

  4. Deniseinark says:

    I like the coins. Furthermore, you could also drape mardi gras beads on it and the doubloons plus the beads would let the wreath do double duty from just past Valentine’s Day through St. Pat’s.

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you for the suggestion — it never occurred to me that this could also be a Mardi Gras wreath. Thanks for the “coin” vote, too. I’ll have a Mardi Gras idea next week, so I’ll see you soon! Sharon

  5. Lorrie Koenig says:

    I like the wreath better without the coins….they make it too busy and take away from the look, not adding anything to it.
    Thanks for the cheerful crafts to brighten these winter days.

  6. LisaM6 says:

    The wreath really looks great too. Where to find the time to create all the fun ideas you show us. This is on my to create list. Thanks. :)

    • Sharon says:

      Thank you, Lisa. Using these “ready-to-go” flowers really makes this easy, so I hope you can find the time to create the wreath and/or the topiary. Happy Friday! Sharon
