ic Kathe With an E: St. Patrick's Day Wreath

St. Patrick's Day Wreath

We are in the middle of a late winter blizzard.
Judging by the snow on the patio chair 
I'd say we have about 7-8 inches so far
with more to come this afternoon into the evening.
I don't think we'll be sitting out there any time soon!

Luckily, we had no plans to be out and about so, today was the perfect day to get my craft on!

Valentine's Day has been packed away for this year
and with only a few weeks until St. Patrick's Day
I decided to create a simple wreath to put on the front door.
I received the grapevine wreath for free from Ms K when she moved a few months ago.
The welcome shamrock is from the Dollar Tree as are all of the other embellishments.
I don't think I've ever said something had to much glitter!
Even the green tipped carnations are sprinkled with glitter.
Of course, I'll have to wait until the snow stops and I can get out before I can add it to the front door to great guests. 
Until then, I'll keep it up on the wall in the hallway to welcome us up the stairs each day!

And, since it's still snowing and my glue gun is still locked and loaded, 
I'll just have to find something else to craft!

Don't forget to come by on Tuesday's
for the link party.

  1. Ok I'll listen to you gripe about the snow but I'm not gonna feel sorry for you! Cute wreath.

  2. Your wreath is adorable - between you and Danni ( Silo Hill Farm ) I'm feeling very inadequate with holiday decorating lol!!!
    I'm officially fed up with snow now - I'm praying March is a good month - sometimes it can be worse than all of them put together here in Montreal!

  3. What an amazing snow picture! It looks wonderful to us here in FLA!
    The wreath is so cute, it'll soon be that time. I can't wait.

  4. Cute wreath. Happy to be a new GFC follower.

  6. Very cute, Kathe! Thanks for sharing at A New Creation link party!

    Hope you are staying warm with the blizzard pouring down!

  7. Ooooohhhh Kathe, your porch looks soooooo cold! We've had a cold, windy day too, but no snow. Your bright, St. Patty's green decorations are certainly a reminder of a beautiful spring to come!

  8. Cute wreath! Since I'm leaving for Texas I'm not going to do any St Pat's decorations this year. Glad you have the snow and not me!! Stay warm and craft away! hugs, Linda

  9. We got snow today in New Mexico, some of the drifts on our front porch are about 2 ft high! We don't get much snow here in Eastern NM, so it's a real treat! Love your wreath, I haven't ever decorated for St Pat's day, maybe I will...it looks fun! Hugs, Penny

  10. Back again...I am a no-reply commenter and that makes me sad! I've tried to fix it but I can't seem to figure out how..lol! Hugs, Penny

  11. Wow..don't you wish you could be siting in your porch and not shoveling all that snow? yikes!!! lol...but we are about to be covered as well with another 6 inches...sooo..in the meantime I will enjoy your festive wreath! Thank you for posting Kathe! it's adorable and sure warms the heart! Came over from Nap-Time Creations party! Have a great week!

  23. I cannot believe all of that snow! We almost never get any in Georgia any more - in the past, it would snow a little every few years. Love the wreath - hope you get to hang it soon!

  24. I love your wreath - great diy! The vintage graphics on the shamrock are so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing it at Project Inspired!

  25. Great way to weather the storm.

    Great to have you at Seasonal Sundays.

  26. This year the Ground Hog predicted an early spring but I think he couldn't have been more wrong! It seems everyone has snow and more so than in previous years! Down here in Mississippi we even had snow yesterday and that is unheard of for March in Mississippi!

    Thanks for linking up your St. Patty's Day wreath at Party In Polka Dots!

    Have a wonderful week!


  27. Never thought of making a wreath for St. Paddy's Day. The patio chair did not really looking inviting to sit on.

  28. Cute Kathe. May the luck of the Irish be with you! We have alot of snow out back also. Sunny yesterday and rainy today. Melting alot in the front yard. Yahoo, may I will finally feel motivated to decorate my porch for Spring.

  29. Wow. This is simple enough that even I could make it. Nicely done! Hope the snow leaves before Spring. :)

  30. Such a fun way to decorate for St. Patrick's Day!
    Thanks so much for linking up over at Finding the Pretty & Delicious Linky Party. Hope you'll come back again on Saturday! Leigh Anne

  31. Wow, I am so jealous of your snow!! I do remember getting tired of it real quick when I had to deal with it every year. LOL Your wreath is adorable. Perfect color against all of that snow. Thank you so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. :)
