St. Patty Wreath

Remember a while ago when I featured the Rose Wreath from I'm a Yarner - I LOVED it and planned on making a pink version for Valentine's Day  - well, like many projects it just didn't get done.  But look:

 Then the other day my aunt showed up to craft with this scrapbook cutter thing that cut spirals - I immediately thought of the paper rosettes and making a wreath.  Since the next holiday coming up was St. Patrick's Day, I dug out all the green paper I had and cut it all with her mat thing - so easy!  I then wrapped a cardboard circle in green fabric (err, green sheet remnant - whatever) and hot glued on the flowers.  So fun!

Sometimes I get so excited to take pictures and show off my creations that I don't cut threads/pull of glue strings/etc - just keeping it real.....

I love the vibrant greens (that is why I love St Patty's Day!) FABULOUSNESS!!!!!!! I think I may have to try this with all my paper scraps!

This is one of my favorite CSI projects I have visited. Cute cute cute.

This is really nice! I've been fighting decorating for St. Patty's Day, but this would be a nice subtle touch! I'm a new follower!

So cute...you did a great job! I love little rosettes, so cute :)

If only we could find out what the cutter thingy was, we might totally be able to copy you! This is such a fun idea, and it looks like you could do it for all kinds of color themes etc. Thanks for sharing. :)

I love how it looks on your door and what a great idea. Bravo!!!!

This looks awesome Mandy, great job!!

(and I'm totally with you on not always cutting strings or pulling off random hot glue strands. :)

very cute Mandy! I actually own the cutter thing and have not used it to do this. Love it!

Just found your blog from a Pinterest pinning...what a great wreath. How did you weatherize it?

I LOVE your paper flower wreath for St. Patrick's Day, it is stunning! I hope it's okay, I featured it in a St. Patrick's Day round-up hub here:

I'm linking up to your tutorial from a blog post/link roundup I'm doing tomorrow. This is just too cool to not share!

Lovely wreath, which is featured in Good Housekeeping's email this week. Could you please be more specific about "this scrapbook cutter thing that cut spirals"? I'd like to try making a similar wreath, but am unclear what tool you're referencing.

Hi Caro - - I need to draw out a picture and update the post, but it's a diecut that cuts a circle spiral out of paper. Then you roll up the spiral. I'll try and update the tutorial later today!
