St. Patrick's Day Lucky {Wreath}

I pulled this sucker together last minute when February was over and I had to take down my Valentine's Day wreath. 

I already had the vine wreath. I had previously wrapped cardstock in yard {last summer?} for the #70 (our house number) and added flowers  for a summertime for St. Patrick's Day, took everything but the yarn numbers off.

I used cardstock with a layer of spray glue and glitter to make this really quick wreath. I cut the letters using my Silhouette machine. I used toothpicks that I hot glued onto the back of the letters to stick the letters onto the wreath...I didn't want to make anything permanent so I can reuse the vine wreath! {My front door is covered with a porch, this would definitely NOT hold up if it was completely exposed to the elements} I sprayed the glitter with some sealant I had, but Mod Podge might be a good option to keep the glitter from falling off...

I added the burlap bow, using a roll of burlap I picked up a long time ago at Michael's and never used. {I think I googled "burlap bow tutorial" but of course can't find what I think I used.)

To tie this bow, I didn't use any wire, JUST the burlap ribbon. I made four evenly sized loops, with long 15" tails, asked my husband to hold them and then tied a smaller section of burlap around the rest of the bow. I used the excess of the center loop (the back of the knot) to tie the bow onto my wreath.

From start to finish I would say this took less than 30 minutes to pull together...not bad, right?!
