St. Patrick’s Day Door Wreath – Leprechaun Hat Door Decoration

This cute St. Patrick’s Day Door Wreath is whimsical and welcomes both my guests and spring with the pretty yellow and purple flowers. The door decoration features a leprechaun hat to give it a whimsical look.

My front door is one place that I decorate all year round. Even when I don’t decorate inside the house, I still like to welcome guests in a pretty way on my entry.

Recycling is my middle name when it comes to my craft projects. I like to use my supplies over and over again!

The sunflowers on this door hanging have been in so many other projects. I love the look of them and just keep taking apart previous projects to fashion them into something new. I think this may be their last project, though! The stems are pretty short now.

On a recent shopping trip, I found a lucky leprechaun hat and a shamrock with attached bells and I knew just how my my front door would look in March!

I have an oval glass panel on my front door, so a normal wreath doesn’t work for me. I enjoy making door swags instead.St. Patrick's Day Door wreath on a blue door with a leprechaun hat.

Here is how I made my St. Patrick’s Day door decoration

I gathered up all of my supplies. This is what I used:Leprechaun hat, flowers, shamrocks, leaves and plywood.

Burlap is a great material to use in wreaths. For this project, I started by covering the plywood with the burlap fabric and tack it in place using the hot glue.Hot glue gun and green burlap material.

Open up the onion grass sprigs and flatten them out. Lay them on the covered burlap to make a base for the swag, then attach with hot glue.

Attach the greenery by gluing the ivy so that is fans outward evenly on both sides, and then hot glue the flowers in place. There is no set way to do this.

I walked back and forth to the front door to see how it was coming together. Just keep attaching until the look of it is pleasing.Leaves and silk flowers in a collage.

Time to add the leprechaun hat

Hot glue the shamrock and bells in place on the brim of the hat on an angle. The bells will hang down and make a sound when the door opens and closes.Leprechaun hat with shamrock and bells.

Hot glue the hat in place at the top of the plywood piece and thread a piece of fine gauge wire through the hat brim under the ribbon so that it is hidden.

Make a loop with it and hang it on a glass door hanger.

TaDa! That’s all there is to making this St. Patrick’s Day Door Swag. I love the pretty yellow and purple flowers that seem to say “it’s almost spring.”

Could you please tell me the brand of paint and color of your door? It’s beautiful!

Thanks for the kind words. The color is a Sherwin Williams shade called Naval, but I had it tinted to a Behr paint because I liked the consistency better.
