St Patricks Day

Again...Just posting 11 months early!
The "LUCK" letters were cut out with a scroll saw (can I just say I LOVE my scroll saw?!) I also cut the clovers out with it. I painted the letters, then traced them on paper, then mod podged the paper on. One of the clovers has bead board paper on it (available at Home Depot) and another is glittered.

A closer view - I distressed the letters with sand paper and then inked the edges with a dark brown ink pad.

Hah! Like the yellow putty holding the letter upright?! :)

The glittered and bead board paper shamrock

Then I printed the word "lucky" on green vellum, and used spray adhesive to attach it to a painted board.

Shamrock cut out with scroll saw (I'm tellin' ya, I couldn't live without that saw!)

This is so cute! St Patricks day si so hard to decorate for. I wish I had a scroll saw, but alas I only have a circular saw. Thanks for the cute ideas, I wish I could come to your craft nights!
