St. Patrick’s Day Countdown Wreath

Valentine’s Day has quickly passed and now it’s time to prepare for one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, c’mon… my name is Erin. It means Ireland.

So back in my early blogging days I created this wreath for my daughter’s bedroom door using some colorful fabric scraps. I still love this wreath. One of my absolute favorites.
