I looked through pages of wreaths before I settled on the simple bow method. I found this tutorial at Home By Sunset. The directions are pretty simple. Use a wire ring or convert an old hanger (as I did) and start tying bows. I got these two huge spools (50 yards)of ribbon at Costco a couple months ago.
There are 26 bows in each color. It took me roughly 2 hrs to complete. I did have a few interruptions as I do have 4 year old twin boys at home with me. Oh, how I wish they knew how to tie bows (or their shoes).
In retrospect I would have lined the hanger with florist tape because the flowers do flip slightly when not on a hard surface (like the door). Overall, I am super happy with the wreath. It brightens my day when I drive up to the house and I see it. I will be doing another ribbon type wreath for Easter. I got a super deal on yellow ribbon at Menards after Christmas sale. Yes, Menards!
If you like what you see, leave a comment. Comments make me happy!

This 6 inch Happy St Patrick's Day circle is from How Does She? They do make you sign up your email but it's totally worth it.
This little cutie is from eighteen25. This is straight off the printer; no trimming, no nothing. Yep, I said, "No nothing." That's my favorite kind of printable.
Now I need to work on my Photoshop skills so I can offer my own free St Patrick's day printable!!

Edit: I added flowers to the banner. I made two different kinds. The first one is the same one I used on my Christmas cards. You can see those here. It is five punched scallops, spritzed with bronze glimmer mist and held together with a brad. The second is five punched scallops too. To make this flower you fold four of the scallops into fourths and glue on. This flower is also held together with a brad. I like the little addition.

Then it hit me! A mustache valentine. I thought I was a genius. I could cut out little mustaches for the boys and lips for the girls and wrap it around the lollipop. I mean, really, I am so smart. Then I decided to google it make sure nobody else was as smart (i.e. thought of it first). Turn out I am not a genius. I found cute mustache ideas here and here and here. I guess great minds think alike.
What I DID do was make them cute, original tshirts. Using my new best friend (PSE) I made the mustache valentine shirt. I printed onto t-shirt iron-on transfer paper and ironed on. You can download it here. Again, I ask that you leave a comment or become a follower when you download. Thanks!
