St. Patrick's Day Wreath

I saw a Valentine's Heart wreath on someone's door at work and loved it. I decided to do one for St. Patrick's Day. Both my husband and I have Irish blood (my maiden name was Diggins, his ancestor was a Walker) and we always do something around here to celebrate. My husband always cooks breakfast at our house and sometimes he dyes our breakfast green (no one ate the oatmeal the year he did that green!), or I make an Irish meal for dinner. I send St. Patrick's Day cards to my parents and siblings, but they have been made for a while, so I made this wreath to get into the spirit last week. I cut the base with the Cricut Expression, using my Gypsy to set the cuts. I cut it in a lightweight cardboard, then again in a green patterened paper. I cut lots of shamrocks in 2 shades of green cardstock and 2 patterened papers, then one "pot of gold" and one hat in black. I used Paper Doll Dress Up for all those cuts. I added a green hat band and put lots of Stickles in several shades of golds on the pot and made a gold buckle on the hat. I added some doodling with white pen on the pot and hat. I laminated everything so I could hang it on the outside door and not worry about rain ruining it. I glued it all together and added the stamped sentiment (Have a lucky day) from Studio G, and the ST. Patrick's Day ribbon (bought on clearance from Wal-Mart after St. Patrick's day a few years ago). If I were doing it over I would have made it a little larger, but I'm pleased overall with how it turned out.  Erin Go Braugh!
