I have never been one to celebrate St. Patty’s Day. It just hasn’t been appealing to me. My attitude has been “if you pinch me, I’ll punch you.” Simple enough. If there was a Scrooge of this holiday, it would probably be called “Jonie” because that’s how much I don’t really care about it.
Fast forward to this year. I have decided that it’s ok to celebrate the little holidays with my kids. In fact, it can be fun AND very informative. To start my transition to my new mindset, I decided to make a little St. Patty’s Day decor to get the ball rolling. Baby steps people. Baby steps.
With the help of a kit from FabDecor, I was able to create my very first St. Patty’s Day decoration. I really like a more classic look, and I think I achieved that here.
Would you like to make one of your own? It is so easy and fun to make!
- Wood/Vinyl from FabDecor
- Mod Podge
- Paint Brush
I started by painting my blocks white. Like I said before, I really like a classic look over the traditional green although both are nice.
Next, I took my vinyl shamrocks and peeled the backing off and sprinkled glitter all over the top of the sticky side. Then you peel the vinyl off of the transfer tape and glue the shamrocks to the blocks using mod podge.
The next part is a little tricky to show you with pictures, so I will try to explain it the best I can. I put my vinyl “Pot of Gold” saying on the bottom block. (The letters were also white, so it didn’t really show up in the photo I took.) I used mod podge and painted the block directly over the top of the letters. I let it dry for a little bit and then peeled the letters out of the glitter. This makes it so the vinyl acts as a backwards stencil. It worked like a charm!
On the top block, I decided to keep it simple and just used some tape to create lines. I then used my mod podge and glitter again and am loving the way it turned out!
Overall, not bad for my first St. Patty’s Day decor!
