Materials Needed:

Small Terra Cotta Flower Pot
5/8″ Black with Gold Edge Satin Ribbon
Shamrock Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint
Unfinished Wood Knobs for Cabinet Furniture Drawer Pull Handles
Four Leaf Clover Shamrocks
Hot glue gun and glue sticks

Let’s grab your supplies, channel your inner artist, and let get crafting!

Step 1: Grab your desired paint color that you wish to be the base color. You will then paint a nice coat covering all of the terra cotta pot. With this being for St. Patrick’s Day, i chose to go with ourShamrock Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint.

You will then grab your ‘snow globe’ jar and take this apart. Take the lid and the insert piece. You will then want to paint this in the same color used for the pot.

  • With this being plastic, the paint was having a hard time sticking. I did not have a primer on hand, so i went to the next best thing – HAIRSPRAY Worked Great!

Once all the paint was dried, i came in with a coat of our Mod Podge to help seal. You can spray again with the hairspray before and after. This will then help give it more security and not peeling!

Step 2: Grab your choice in ribbon. I went with our5/8″ Black with Gold Edge Satin Ribbon. I hot glued this in place alongside the rim of the lid and the insert that was inside the ‘Snow globe’ jar.

Step 3: Grab the insert piece that fit in the opening of the jar. You will want this piece glued onto the bottom of the terra cotta pot. You will glue the insert top against the pot. This will have the concave portion facing upward, which will create a “seat” for the jar to sit on.

  • You will want to apply the multi purpose glue, like E6000 in the center and then with the hot glue gun, apply a circle around this to help hold into place.

Step 4: Grab your globe. Once you are ready, apply a layer of hot glue on the rim of the plastic insert piece that the globe will sit on. Then attach.

With some of the hot glue showing, i came in with some twine and wrapped around about 3 times and tied off. This helped give a ice touch, but also hid that glue.

Step 5: Here you will have the options for a few finishing touches. I wanted to attach a topper to the lid for the globe. So i grabbed our Unfinished Wood Knobs, painted this in the same green and then hot glued in place on top.

We had these adorable shamrock accents, so i glue one right onto the terra cotta pot to give it more of a St. Patrick feel.

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!
