Recycling a Wreath for Spring

I decided for spring I would recycle one of the wreaths I already have into a new wreath for St. Patrick's Day.  I took this Book Page Wreath and stripped it of it's leaves and ribbon.  That left me with a burlap wrapped wreath form and the black and white ribbon hanger.

 I cut out my own patterns for four leaf clovers and hearts.  I put glue down the fold of the hearts and glued them only by the fold to create the 3D effect. 

The Scrabble tiles are just printed out with my computer.  You can get that printable here.
The four leaf clovers are made with old book pages and construction paper.  I put a spot of school glue on the back to adhere them to the burlap wreath.  

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.
