Shamrock wreath step by step instructions

Using a knit jersey like fabric (it doesn’t have to be, just as long as it’s a light and flowy fabric), an old t-shirt works great too. Cut out 3 inch circles.

I’m not sure how many I used, but I’m guessing about 15-20.

Also, your circles don’t have to be perfect since it won’t matter.

With each circle piece, add a dab of glue in the center.

Cut small triangle pieces out of a few different fabrics. And cut a piece of thin ribbon about 12 inches in length.

(also depends on the width of your wreath).

Glue along the top of the back of your triangle.

Keep attaching your traingle pieces along the piece of your ribbon. You should only need about 5 or 6 triangles on your mini bunting.
