Ever since Heidi made a Lucky Charms bracelet for Mod Podge Rocks last year, I’ve been obsessed with figuring out how to incorporate this delicious cereal into another craft. Her project was seriously brilliant, and I knew I couldn’t touch jewelry because she already went there. So I decided to venture into the home decor realm with this fun Lucky Charms wreath! Make St. Patrick’s Day a little kitschy and a little colorful with this fun project. Check out the detail:
The only time consuming part of this craft is picking the marshmallows out of the cereal, and it’s kind of a shame that you don’t get to eat them . . . but the end result is worth it. Here’s how I made this wreath.
Gather These Supplies
- 12″ chipboard wreath form
- Lucky Charms cereal – one box
- Acrylic paint – white
- Clear acrylic sealer
- Craft glue
- Blue ribbon
- Hot glue gun
I found this nice chipboard wreath form at Hobby Lobby. I didn’t want to use foam because it was too thick (and I didn’t want a round edge to work the cereal around) – so this was perfect. I painted it white and let it dry.
This part brought a few tears to my eyes. I had to pick the marshmallows out of the cereal. The marshmallows are the best part! Though I was sad to do it . . . the final result was worth it. And I’m not going to lie – a few may have snuck into my mouth during this process.
