I don’t go crazy with decorations for St. Patrick’s Day but I always like a good excuse to redecorate my mantel! This year I’m doing a pretty simple mantel (posting next week!) and the focal point is this fun Rainbow & Gold St. Patrick’s Day sign I made!
I’ve used this same fun plaque (found at Hobby Lobby) to make a Christmas and a Valentine’s Day sign. And today I’m showing you my St. Patrick’s Day version. Rainbows for days!! And who doesn’t love gold right now, right?
- wood plaque
- craft paints (rainbow colors as well as white and gold metallic)
- Small wood letters to spell out LUCKY
- Shamrock Printable that you can download HERE.
- foam brushes
- 1″ painter’s tape
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Paint entire plaque white and allow to dry. Tape off stripes (spacing 1″ apart) and paint in rainbow colors. I did the bottom stripe in the gold metallic paint because I had an extra stripe. Allow paint to dry and remove painter’s tape. Paint tops of wood letters gold. Download shamrock printable and cut out shamrock (I recommend printing on cardstock).
I just used a little dab of hot glue to attach each letter (I used one of my pot lids as a guide to arrange the letters in a curve like that) and also dabbed a bit of glue to attach the shamrock. You might want to mod podge the shamrock on before attaching the letters to make it more permanent. I liked having it be a little bit 3D and off the board a bit.
I can’t wait to show you the rest of my mantel. Feelin’ pretty LUCKY over here. 🙂
