DT Craft: Front Door Clover Decor

Dollar Tree St. Patrick's Day Clover WreathThe director for my daughter’s band asked me to make another video. This time the video is for the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, next year. It’s 11:30 at night and I’m faithfully plugging away. I better be buying her some major brownie points *wink*!

So in between working on the video today, I cleaned the living room, did the dishes, made some cookies, ate dinner (Megan fixed hot dogs & chili!) and quickly put this little craft together.

I wanted to put something on the front door for St. Patrick’s Day but money is tight (as usual!). A quick visit to the Dollar Tree, aka my home away from home, and I found a few objects to dress up the door for the amazing cost of $3.

This is an easy five minute craft that most older children (8-10 year old) should be able to create with a little help from a supervisor.

(Ok.. It’s now 5:30 am and I’m on the first export of the video. I really hope I don’t have to do any altering *knock knock knock*)
