Because I can't pass up a good dinner party, I am having all my friends and family all over for a bowl of Corned Beef Cabbage and a glass of green wine! In order to prepare I felt my house needed a little Irish flare and I wasn't having much luck finding decorations that fit my style so I decide to make my own. Shocker, right? I found a green foam wreath at the local craft store and also picked up some floral, small decorations, ribbon and moss.
I wrapped the foam wreath with the green moss, trying to cover as much of the wreath as possible and glue in place.
I layered the floral pieces on the bottom of the wreath and glued in place. I added a pretty shamrock shaped sign and a few other shamrocks. Lastly I added an ornate white and gold ribbon to hang the wreath with.
I absolutely love how it turned out and I know I couldn't of found something like this in a store for small amount that I spend. Take the time to make your own decorations, it cost effect and really fun! Plus it is always fun when someone ask where you bought and you can just smile and say I made it!
