To make this fun craft, start with a straw wreath that you can buy at any local craft store. First, wrap the entire wreath with a burlap ribbon and secured it with pins. Next, use Canvas Corp Avocado, Linen and Ivory Burlap Fringe to wrap sections of color onto the wreath. You can use twine as well to give some extra texture.

Also, you can make paper flowers using Lime Green & White Dot and Green & Ivory Ribbon Stripe papers. If you don’t own a Sizzix, there are several floral templates online or you can use the many Burlap Flowers that Canvas Corp has to offer. Using the Lime Green canvas, cut out clover leaves and sew a wooden button on as the base.

To make the banner use the Green Burlap to cut out 5 small triangles. Next, glue on the alphabet letters and twine to the triangles. Finally,  arrange and glue the flowers to the wreath and attach the banner to green Bakers twine with mini clothespins. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Happy Creating!!!
