I know what you are thinking, it’s Valentine’s Day and already she is posting about Saint Patrick’s Day. Well that’s the way it is in the blogging and retail world, you have to think ahead to stay ahead.

Ha ha ha ha, I certainly am not ahead of the game as I’ve seen lots of St. Patty’s Day posts out there already and all over Pinterest. I don’t normally decorate or craft for this occasion but this year I decided to change things up.

I’ve chosen 10 of the best Saint Patrick’s Day crafts I could find (that is my opinion) and now I just have to decide which one I will make – good thing is I have a month to decide.

First up is this Fabric Lucky Clover Specimen Art by Flamingo Toes

I really like the look of this and although it is made with fabric, I think you could make a similar version from scrapbooking papers.

Day 11 – Edible DIY Pretzel Wreaths

Edible DIY Pretzel Wreaths

Here is a cute and delicious idea for Christmas. These can be made and given as gifts or hung on the Christmas tree.  I plan on storing some in an airtight container until Christmas Day and then my family and friends can pick an ornament from my tree that is edible and delicious.

For these pretzel wreaths you will need 9 small pretzels for each wreath, melted chocolate chips to adhere the pieces together and candy of your choice for decorating.  I used M&Ms and colored sugar.

Lay your pretzels out on parchment or wax paper (to catch the extra chocolate and sugar, this could get messy) to the size you want, like I said I used 9 pretzels in total per wreath, 5 on the bottom and four on the top.  I dipped each of the bottom pretzels in the melted chocolate and placed on the parchment paper in the shape of a wreath. Then I dipped the 4 remaining pretzels and placed them so they would overlap the bottom layer. While the chocolate was still wet I added my candy and colored sugar.
