Make a Lucky Charms Wreath for St. Patrick’s Day

Use one of the best cereals ever – Lucky Charms – to create a fun and unique St. Patrick’s Day wreath. This Lucky Charms wreath is SO easy to make.

Make a Lucky Charms Wreath for St. Patrick's DayEver 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:

DIY Lucky Charms Wreath detailThe 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
  • Scissors

IMG_3411I 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.
