Emerald Isle Painted Newspaper Wreath

CeCe's Emerald Isle Chalk & Clay Paint DIY Wreath~ Vintage Street Designs (15)Yep, it’s true…I’m ready to take down the Valentine Decorations and make our home GREEN!  I thought I would start off with a DIY project using CeCe’s Emerald Isle Paint Color fitting for St. Patrick’s Day.  This would be a great project to do with your little Leprechauns too.

Supplies Needed:

Two Twig Wreaths, Old Newspaper, CeCe Caldwell’s Paints ~ Emerald Isle (Sample Size goes a long way), Glitter Cardstock, Twine, Hot Glue Gun, Paint Roller, ScissorsCeCe's Emerald Isle Chalk & Clay Paint ~ Vintage Street Designs (3)A sample size of paint is all I needed for the two small wreaths I made and I had plenty left over.

CeCe's Emerald Isle Chalk & Clay Paint ~ Vintage Street Designs (17)I made these wreaths to hang on the back’s of our dining room chairs.  CeCe Caldwell's Paints Emerald Isle DIY Painted Newspaper Wreath (4)
