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!
