St. Patty's Day Home Decor-MPC Challenge

Hi my crafty friends!  Happy hump day to you all!  Today's Cricut challenge at My Paper Crafting is "Irish Eye's Smiling", so anything to do with St. Patty's Day.  I didn't have any decorations for this time of year so I made myself some.  On Monday I posted a banner, today I am posting a wreath.  I am so loving these tulle wreaths and yes I've made quite a few of them. They are just so easy to make and they look nice as well.  I used a 10" Styrofoam wreath form and lots of tulle.  I cute my tulle at 15-18" strips, you will need about 50 of them, maybe more.  Tie them onto your wreath form making a knot. Enlarge the pic and you will see my knots, they make a little design going around the wreath.  Trim up your ends as you go keeping them as even as possible.  After you have your wreath covered you are ready to decorate how ever you would like.  I chose to put a Cricut cut on mine with some die cut shamrocks.  I might add shamrocks all the way around the wreath-still decided on that.  The Cricut cartridge I used is Simply Charmed, the shamrock die is from My Creative Time, and Peachy Keen face stamps.  Come and link up with us with your Cricut project!  We love it when you do!!
