St. Patrick's Day Wreath
Anyone interested in making a St. Patrick's Day wreath? I always love converting the secular to sacred:) I dug this up from the archives as I'm hanging mine up this week. Thought I'd re-post the tutorial for fun!
Making this St. Patrick's Day wreath into a liturgical wreath, only took a few easy steps...a long with a little Mod Podge and an image of St. Patrick!
I started with an old grapevine wreath (complete with dusty leaves that I need to clean) *wink* and added some foam glitter shamrocks with hot glue, representing the way that St. Patrick taught us about the trinity. I think I bought these and the large bow from the Dollar Tree at one time. If you can't find them there, I have no doubt you can find these inexpensive supplies just about anywhere...Hobby Lobby, Target, Walmart?
Then I added this image to the center, found at this link. I reduced it to 30% and glued it on with a little Mod Podge. Voila...A St. Patrick liturgical wreath!
It's nothing fancy but it's another visual that brings back the faithful meaning to a holiday that has been taken over, in large part, by the secular culture.
+Happy St. Patrick's Day!+
