St. Patty's Day Wreath

I know you must think I forgot to show you my St. Patty's Day Wreath.  Don't worry I didn't!  My time has been sucked up by volleyball lately but this past weekend and the next one I don't have tournaments so it's a mini 'get everything cleaned and back together' vacation.
I was plesently surprised with both wreaths, and actually even more that I am a 'wreath person' I never got into them til recently.  Browsing the endless DIY crafting blogs inspired me.
For my St. Patty's Wreath you will need A LOT of green felt, I used 2 different shades. Cut into circles, I used a glass to measure the circles.  A straw wreath, wrapped in celophane.  Some simple sewing pins, and a decorative ribbon to finish it off.
So simple!  Take a pin and insert it in the middle of the circle, then pin to the wreath, add felt with pins so that they squish the other felt together, making it look like flowers!

Finished product!
Voila! Happy St. Patty's Day to you!  Next up, my spring wreath.
