A Unique St. Patrick’s Wreath
A pair of ghillies (Irish dance shoes) make this St. Patrick’s wreath unique. Even without the shoes, this would make a great wreath for your door this St. Patrick’s season.

I began this wreath with a standard grapevine wreath.
Spotting this sign at Hobby Lobby, I knew I wanted to include it as part of my St. Patrick’s wreath. You can find St. Patrick’s signs at Dollar Tree, too!
Secure your sign to your wreath with floral wire. Pull the wire around and through the grapevines and use it to make a circle on the backside of the wreath to hang it on your door.
Faux green and white florals including bells of Ireland, naturally!
Take the stems of your flowers and foliage and wedge them down through the grapevine wreath securely. If you would like, you can use hot glue to be sure they do not come out. I like to just wedge the stems in and use wire to secure them so that I can remove them and re-use both my wreath and the florals in different ways in the future.
Use floral wire to attach the stems to the wreath.
This photo shows how the bells of Ireland are not laying down against the wreath. Using the wire will make it lie down against the grapevine.
A pair of green tulip bunches for just $1.99 each from Michael’s are just the right color for St. Patrick’s Day.
There was no need to cut the tulip bunches apart, they were just added to the wreath.
The last florals I selected to add to the wreath are these white hydrangea clusters.
Continuing to add the florals to the side of the wreath gives it a focal point.
This little pair of ghillies (Irish dance shoes) were worn by my granddaughter. She has outgrown these and has given up Irish Dance in favor of karate!
The shoes were bit flat, so I stuffed them with moss to fill them out. The green is an appropriate addition to the wreath, too.
After knotting the laces, I used a green paper coated wire, threaded through the knot and fed down through the grapevine wreath.
At this point it seemed like I needed to add a little more florals along the top edge of the wreath.
Here is my St. Patrick’s wreath all ready to hang from my front door!
