St. Patrick's Day wreath with a yarn rainbow on top and a green felt pot of gold.This past weekend I picked up two foam wreath forms with the plan of creating new wreaths for our home. One for St. Patrick’s Day and one for Easter! Today I’m sharing this fun DIY St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Wreath! This was so fun to make and I love how colorful the rainbow yarn colors are.

I picked up the gold coins and felt shamrocks from Joann Fabrics. The felt shamrocks originally came on a string of lights but I just pulled them off and they were ready to use. You could definitely make these yourself, but since this was somewhat of a last minute project I thought easy and quick was the way to go!

Below is the step-by-step tutorial :)

Supplies Needed

Step by Step Tutorial

Step One: Create the pot of gold.

Cut the green glitter felt into a “pot of gold” shape using the foam wreath form as a guide. I traced around the bottom half of my wreath form to get started and then trimmed the pot to be about 6″ tall. I cut small divots into each side to shape the pot.

A sheet of green felt is cut to match the curve of the wreath form.

Step Two: Create the rainbow!

Divide the top half of the wreath form into 7 equal parts – one for each color of the rainbow. For my form, this ended up being slightly over 2″ when measured along the inside part of the form.

Start with the red yarn and wrap the yarn around the form tightly. Secure the ends with glue or tape and repeat for all seven colors.

Red yarn is starting to be wrapped around the wreath form; rolls of colorful yarn sit nearby.

After covering the top half of my form, I decided to extend the red and purple sections down farther since the white form was peeking through the divots in my pot of gold. I covered the bottom part of the wreath form with green yarn.

Step Three: Adhere the pot of gold to the wreath.

Glue the pot of gold onto the wreath form. I used hot glue.

A green pot cut from felt is adhered to the bottom of the rainbow wreath.

Attach gold coins from the back side of the pot. The gold coins I found at Joann Fabrics were a really light plastic which worked perfectly for this.

Plastic gold coins are coming out of the top of the green felt pot.

Step Four: Decorate the pot of gold.

Decorate the pot of gold with ribbon and felt shamrocks. Add a small hanging loop to the top of the wreath with green yarn.

The St. Patrick’s Day wreath is finished! Yay! I love how cute and colorful this wreath turned out. It was fairly easy to make and was a great use for some of my yarn stash. Wrapping the yarn around the wreath form was the most time consuming part of this wreath – a great activity to do while catching up on your Netflix shows :)
