Lucky Shamrock Wreath + more Inspiration

“…you’ve gotta ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya..?” 
– Harry Callahan, Dirty Harry (1971)
So what is “luck” anyway?  Karma, kismet, serendipity – these are just a few positive words describing luck.  And there are more than a few symbols to aid in superstition: numbers, animals, and even objects like four leaf clovers, rabbit’s foot, and a upturned horseshoe.
What is luck to you?
For me, sometimes luck is finding a surplus of ideas when you start searching for crafty inspiration!   
I used a foam shamrock cutout to trace the larger ones, but I had to rely on my lack of drawing skills for the smaller ones.
I also feel lucky to be surrounded by amazing and talented friends who push me to be the best person I can be, both on- and offline.  You will find a f of their projects at the end of this post.
But first… 
Here is what I used:
  • 14″ wreath form
  • off-white/cream colored yarn
  • felt (three colors, obviously)
  • hot glue (and gun)
  • shamrock shape (for tracing)
Simple and fun, perfect for creating a little luck in the house (and St, Patrick’s Day, too)!


Here are a few wreaths that inspired me:
Beer Cap St. Patrick’s Day from Polished Habitat
Saint Patrick’s Day from Pins and Things (on YouTube)
Lucky Shamrocks from Flamingo Toes
Polka Dots and Pearls from Miss Lovie

Rainbow Yarn from Crafts ‘n Coffee

Now go get lucky! (you know what I mean)
