St. Patrick’s Day Craft: Leprechaun Wreath

Back in October 2013, I bought a wreath form, covered it in yarn, and created my Halloween wreath. Since then, it has been a Thanksgiving wreath and a Christmas wreath. Now, I have turned it into an adorable Leprechaun wreath to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Each transformation has cost around $5.00.

Broken Ornament Christmas Wreath ~

How many of you have a box of broken Christmas ornaments that you can't bring yourself to throw away because they have sentimental value? My mom had a box like that.
