How to make a St. Patrick's Day ribbon wreath

A holiday wreath is a festive way to display enthusiasm for St. Patrick's Day. This tutorial uses a shamrock ribbon to showcase Irish pride, but not all stores may carry this pattern. If this is the case, try a solid green ribbon and use spray adhesive to attach gold glitter or sequins.
Although you may hang this wreath anywhere, it would look striking against a cream-colored wall and dramatic against a black background. If you want to festoon your home with all thing for the holiday, make smaller wreaths to sit in bookshelves or hang on doors.

Instructions
1. Dab glue onto the wreath form. Press the end of the shamrock ribbon to the glue, angling the ribbon slightly downward. Wrap the ribbon around the form three time, slightly overlapping each previous wrap with the next.
2. Continue gluing and wrapping the ribbon around the form. Trim off the ribbon when the form is completely covered. Glue down the end of the ribbon.
3. Make a large bow with trailing ends from the gold ribbon. Glue the ribbon to the wreath wherever you want the top to be.
