Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner-and so is spring for that matter!  What better time to make a bright & cheery, green fabric rose wreath?  Hand made roses are often made with craft paper which is great, but for this project I decided to use fabric.  Fabric roses are so simple to make {much easier than they appear}, and they have a chic, upscale look.  Fabric flower wreaths sell for a pretty penny, but this DIY fabric wreath cost me less than $10 to make.  Introducing, the St. Patty’s Irish {fabric} Rose Wreath.banner display complete st patricks irish rose wreath

Gather up:

Three large pieces of green fabric in varying shades & textures {I used 3 outdated shirts from my local thrift shop}

One piece of cardboard for wreath cut out

Hot glue gun

step 1

Select three pieces of green fabric in different shades & textures.  I went to my local thrift shop and picked up a sweater {$2.99}, waffle knit {$1.99}, and woven tee {$2.99}.  Upcycle when you can!

step 21 Cut a ring out of a piece of cardboard in whatever size you desire.  My wreath was approx. 12″ across

step 3

Cover the wreath in strips of fabric, wrapped around the perimeter.  Hot glue the ends to secure them to the cardboardhow to wrap cardboard wreath st

step 4Now, it’s time to make the fabric flowers.  Cut a circle {approx. 5″ in diameter} out of the fabric.  Your circle does not have to be perfect, infact the fabric roses will look more authentic with uneven edges and varying shapesfabric cut out for st

Cut the fabric circle in a spiral fashion.  The spiral cut should start out thin and gradually get thicker as you reach the center.  how to cut fabric flower st

Starting at the thin end of the spriral cut fabric circle, begin to roll the fabric tightly.  Pinch the bottom end of the roll and this will should spread the petals of the rose naturally

Using hot glue, secure fabric roses to the wreath in desired color pattern.  I simply placed them randomly…

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day and enjoy your St. Patty’s DIY Irish Rose Wreath!  Oh, and find somebody Irish to kiss =)

  1. I think I will try this as a spring wreath with all different colored roses! Love the idea! Must now go rifle through my pile of give away clothes and the kids stained clothes. I can do this project for the price of a few glue sticks.

    1. Sheila, it’s really so simple! What a great way to use clothing that the kids have outgrown, especially considering all the fun patterns!

      Good Luck!

  2. I love home made wreaths! They are so much fun to make, this DIY St. Patricks Day really gets my creative juices flowing! I didn’t know it was that easy to make the fabric roses?! I think I might make one of these for every season. Thanks for the DIY wreath and keep them coming!

  3. This wreath is simply fabulous! St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, might have something to do with my red hair and freckles 😉 I think I may attempt your St. Patrick’s Rose Wreath tonight

  4. How nice! I am interested and think I will try this attractive wreath with a variety of small scrap shamrock print materials of which I refuse to discard. With delight and thanks…Lily
