Top of the morning to ya! Ready for an easy St. Patty’s Day wreath DIY with farmhouse-style!
Back in the day, we used to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by going to pubs to listen to Irish bands and drinking a bit of green beer.
These days, the leprechaun may visit us to pull some pranks and leave a few chocolate coins for us to find. Ah, how times do change, but each season brings good things and hopefully a little luck of the Irish with it!
I wasn’t planning on doing a St. Patrick’s Day DIY. However, I was in the Dollar Tree recently looking for gardening gloves and I spotted this cool shamrock-shaped wire wreath form.
I just had to buy it! And it was only a dollar, so I figured why not?
I also had some 6″ wide burlap ribbon that I figured I could put to use, that I dug out of my storage bins downstairs.
Read on for how to make this St. Patrick’s Day wreath with farmhouse-style!
Supplies for St. Patrick’s Day Wreath Farmhouse-Style
*Quick Note* I have not seen this shamrock form in my Dollar Tree this year (2023). I have only seen them on sites such as Etsy, Amazon, Walmart and Hobby Lobby (Hobby Lobby has one with green pipe cleaners that I assume are removable), but they are more money.
However, a reader was kind enough to let me know that they found one in their local Dollar Tree, so some stores are definitely carrying them! Yay! ☘️
- Wire Shamrock Form – Dollar Tree $1.25
- Burlap Ribbon – had on hand, but suggestions for this at the end of the post
- 5.5″ Green Burlap Ribbon – Walmart $4.47
- Patience 😉
Cut Your Burlap Ribbon to Tie on Shamrock Form
First, take your burlap ribbon (mine was about 6 inches in width) and cut it to about 6 inches in length. Then cut it into small sections, each section was 1/2 to 3/4 inch in width. I was able to make 7 sections out of the 6″ width burlap. It took me roughly 16 feet to make the entire wreath. So patience is a good thing to have here!
Tie Your Burlap Pieces To Your Shamrock Wreath Form
Next, take your sections and start tying them onto your wreath form. One tie worked out just fine for me, I didn’t double knot them. I just kept tying the burlap onto the shamrock wreath form.
I pushed the burlap pieces together as I went along. You’ll be tying them to all 3 sections around the shamrock leaves, and then the 2 sections on the stem.
Keep pushing them together and work your way around.
Finish Up Brown Burlap Pieces for St. Patty’s Day Wreath
Whew…Ok finally done! So this was supposed to be my finished product. And it would have only cost me $1.00 since I had the burlap on hand! However, my kids looked at this and said “Shamrocks aren’t brown!” I had to admit that it didn’t look much like a shamrock.
Brown and Green Burlap Used for Shamrock Wreath
So I headed to my local Walmart and found this green burlap for about $4.50 in the store. I followed the same process in cutting up the pieces as noted above. It wasn’t as tight a weave as the brown (as you can see in the picture), so it did shred a bit easier while I was trying to tie it on. But it worked out perfectly!
Add the Green Burlap and Finish Up Your Shamrock Burlap Wreath!
I randomly tied the green strips of burlap (about 60 pieces) on until I liked the look. This is the finished wreath! I think it speaks “Farmhouse-Style St. Patrick’s Day” diy home decor don’t you?

Where I found the green burlap in the section at Walmart near the floral, I also found 5.5″ brown burlap that was 30 feet for $4.47. This would work if you needed to buy brown burlap for this project. The weave is a bit wider than the burlap that I used. Which lends itself to shredding a bit when tying it on. But I did make it work for me with the green. I also found this tighter weave (similar to the kind I used) 6″ wide burlap on Amazon for just a bit more. I figure though, you wouldn’t use it all, and burlap is always good to have on hand for future DIY projects!
