St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, and there’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than by making a “lucky” wall hanger to display in your home. This easy DIY project is a fun and creative way to show your Irish spirit, and it’s a great way to bring a little bit of luck into your life.
Time to complete:20-30 minutes
- Unfinished Wood Shamrock Cutout
- Unfinished Wood A to Z Dot to Dot Alphabet Letters “L.U.C.K.Y”
- DecoArt Glamour Dust Gold Glitz Glitter Paint
- 7/8″ Black and White Buffalo Plaid Wired Ribbon
- Lime Sherbert Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint
- Christmas Green Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint
- Hot glue gun
Once all supplies are pulled together, we will start painting all the wood pieces.
I went through painting the wooden letters to spell out the word “LUCKY”, with the DecoArt Glamour Dust Gold Glitz Glitter Paint. I had to put about 3 layers since the wood was on the lighter side.
I then moved on to paint the 5 shamrock cutouts. I went with a dark green and a lighter green color. I chose to paint 3 cutouts with the Christmas Green apple barrel paint and then the other 2 with the lime sherbert apple barrel paint. I did add a few drops of the darker green to the lime sherbert to help darken it up slightly.
Once painted pieces were dry, I then started gluing the letters in the middle of each shamrock. I laid the shamrock alternating dark to light.
- Letters L, C, and Y were on the darker colored shamrocks
- Letters U and K were on the lighter colored shamrocks.
This is where we will start putting the wall hanger together. I cut the plaid ribbon in the length of 27 inches. I tied a loop at the top for the hanger. I then laid it flat to start hot gluing all the shamrocks onto the ribbon. I butted each shamrock up together, so each were touching one another.
Your St. Patrick’s Day lucky wall hanger is now complete! This fun and festive wall hanger is a great way to bring a little bit of luck into your life, and it’s a great way to celebrate the holiday in style.
Enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day wall hanger, and have a happy and lucky holiday!
