St. Patty’s Decor
I wanted to share a few fun projects I’ve finished the last few weeks! I wanted to add some St. Patrick’s Day decor to my rotation this year. In the past, I’ve just gone from Valentine’s to Spring Decor. Initially I struggled, cause St. Patty’s decor can be a bit cheesy. I came up with some fun stuff though and I think it turned out simple and fun!
The first thing I decided was that I wanted to do a canvas project. I’ve had some canvases in my closet for a while that needed to be used and I’ve been wanting to try a little painting project. My friend, Jessica, came over from across the street and we just jumped into the project, with very little direction. We learned a lot of things… figured out tons of easier ways (haha).. but all and all they still turned out pretty fun. The shamrocks I bought in a pack at Michaels and then I just hot glued them on! I printed the Lucky Printable from Mom on Time Out! It’s probably my favorite St. Patrick’s Day printable I’ve seen this year!
Then, I originally thought I was going to make a split pea wreath after I saw a pin from That Red Headed Step Child, but then I realized I needed something for on top of my candle sticks. I had an extra 8″ Styrofoam ball in closet, so I decided to use it to make Split Pea Balls! I used hot glue to attach the split peas. It was easy and didn’t take all that long! I love how they turned out too! They are easily going to be something I can pull out several times throughout the year for several seasons/holidays! For the 2nd ball, I knew I wanted it a little smaller. So, I actually ended up using tin foil to make my own ball. It worked really good and I’m super excited about this new discovery. Now I can customize whatever size ball I want, whenever!
I also had a few boards in my garage, so I spray painted one using Krylon’s Ivy Leaf Spray Paint and applied a simple vinyl, that reads “Lucky Us” to it!
For my fireplace mantel, I again, kept it pretty simple. I printed our St. Patrick’s Day Bunting and then I spray painted some beans to arrange them in a vase. I also swapped around some vases, to bring the green vase to the mantel!
All I did in the kitchen was put up this cute board that I purchased from Lori at You’ve Been Framed! I loved the finish she put on the wood!
