I’m so happy that this year there is plenty of time in between St. Patrick’s Day and Easter so I can go all out and decorate for both! Well, decorate my mantel anyway… that seems to always be my go-to spot to throw up some festivity. Not “throw up” but, you know, put up. You know what I mean.
Anyway, excited to share my Lucky Burlap Mantel with you today!
It was quite easy to put together. I kept the basic design in tact from my Valentine’s Day mantel and simply swapped out some of the elements to St. Patty it up! It’s an “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” kind of a situation.
I started with my Burlap Banner that I shared yesterday. Well, really I started with the gold polka dot burlap I had found at Joann’s and knew it would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day this year… THEN I came up with a way to make a banner out of it. THEN I figured, why not frame some of it? That seemed a skosh boring all on its own so I then decided to take some of the craft paint I had used on the banner and paint LUCKY right on the glass. It comes right off with soap & water so it’s a super inexpensive way to decorate for a holiday. I drew out my word with a washable marker first and then went over it with a big paint brush until it looked how I wanted it to look. I don’t think anyone will mistake me for a famous calligrapher or anything but I think it turned out pretty cute!
I also spray painted some mason jars gold and added some fake daisies that I’ve had around forever and keep repurposing again & again & again!
