We love creating paper wreaths for different seasons and holidays. This paper shamrock and dogwood wreath is the perfect craft project for an understated St. Paddy’s Day. And since it’s so subtle, you can keep it up in your home all spring.
Rock this wreath all spring
Our paper shamrock and dogwood wreath features a variety of plants, leaves, and flowers. While it looks detailed, our designer Krista created it for all skill levels. So even if you’re a beginner, we encourage you to try this one out!
Along with being a fun DIY project, this handcrafted wreath is a great way to bring some greenery into your home. And since spring will be here next month, it’s a good transitional piece too. You can hang this wreath up anywhere in your home—above your mantel, on a door, or on a wall.
