Easy and Quick Way to Add St. Patrick’s Charm

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.

Difficulty level:Beginner
Time to complete:20-30 minutes

Supplies needed:

  • 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
  • Scissors

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!

DIY St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Wreath: A Bright & Cheerful Door Decor

It’s about that time to embrace all things green, gold and rainbow!! This bright and colorful DIY will be a great way to add cheer to your home this St. Patrick’s Day!

Difficulty level: Beginner
Time to complete: 30-45 minutes

Supplies needed:

  • Styrofoam Wreath ( 12 inch used)
  • Ribbon ( i used the colors of the rainbow)
  • Paper Mache Half Flower Pot
  • White pom poms
  • Oval cutout
  • 1 inch wood round disc
  • DecoArt Glamour Dust Gold Glitz Glitter Paint
  • Xacto Knife
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors

Let’s grab all the supplies and get crafting!

First things first, we are going to cut off the bottom of the Styrofoam wreath with the xacto knife. I cut off about 11 inches. This allowed me enough room to wrap with the ribbon and connect the cloud and pot of gold at the end.

Once you have got the wreath cut to your liking. We will move on to the painting. I went through and painted the wooden round disc with the DecoArt Glamour Dust Gold Glitz Glitter Paint. This will be the ‘coins’ in our pot of gold! This paint was like magic. Beautifully covered all areas in about 2 coats or less.

I moved on to paints the oval cutout with the white apple barrel paint. This will be turned into our ‘cloud’. I took the black apple barrel paint and covered the paper mache half flower pot.

Allow all the paint to dry.

Once the paint has dried – I came in with my pom poms to help finalize the ‘cloud’. I simply just hot glued the white pom poms to cover all square inches. Now you have a fluffy cloud!

Here comes the fun part! Let’s create the rainbow.

I measured about before beginning to find how much space each ribbon color was going to take. I measured approximately 3.25 to 3.5 inches for each color. I went through and marked with with the xacto knife.

For the ribbon, i choose to do colors of the rainbow! But feel free to mix it up and use leftover ribbon you have around the house.

I started with the red ribbon and hot glued it into place at the one end of the wreath. I then glued every couple wraps, this allow for minimal movement. Once i reached my marked spot, I then cut and glued that in place and moved on with the orange. You will keep doing so until all the wreath is nicely covered in ribbon.

Here is the part the wreath really started to come together. We will grab the dried ‘cloud’ made from the oval cutout and pom poms. I glued that to the left side of the wreath. Make sure you put enough to help adhere to the wreath.

Take the black paint paper mache pot and not slip that onto the right side of the wreath, then glue into place.

Lastly, you will take you painted ‘coins’ and glue them into place on the pot. You will layer them to help give that mound look for the coins.

And that’s it! Your St. Patrick’s Day rainbow is now complete. Add a wire or ribbon to hang on your front door or in a prominent location in your home for a touch of festive cheer.

With its bright colors and cheerful design, this DIY rainbow wreath is sure to bring a smile to the face of everyone who sees it. So grab your supplies and get started on your own St. Patrick’s Day wreath today!
