Quick and easy St. Patricks Day banner

Beth Watson
March 9, 2017

The day of the leprechaun is just around the corner and you can make this quick and easy banner for St. Patrick's Day in just under an hour. Maybe it will bring me some LUCK this year! I hope this lucky shamrock banner inspires you to create some St. Patrick's Day themed home decor items. Paint five wooden shamrock shapes in five different shades of green craft paint. Let dry, then apply a second coat, if necessary.

Apply liquid glue to the edges of each shamrock. This glue applies white, but dries clear and tacky. I always let it set up overnight.

Once the glue is dry and clear, apply release-foil by pressing and burnishing gently with your fingers, then peel back. Repeat until all the edges are covered.

Attach shamrocks to rainbow ribbon with clear adhesive tabs. I chose to hang my shamrocks in an ombre fashion from lightest to darkest, but any combination of greens would work! Use an extra long, single length of ribbon with an arch at the top to resemble an actual rainbow.

I love the shimmering gold thread that these JOY embroidered letters are made from. They really give any project extra sparkle and are perfect for this St. Patrick's Day wallhanging!  Select letters to spell LUCKY and position on shamrocks.  The letters just pop right off the sheets that they come packaged on and the iron-on adhesive is already on the back, which makes any kind of personalized project quick and easy!

Iron on the letters following the directions on the back of the package.  I use a small craft iron because it allows me to get into small areas and doesn't have any steam holes, which can sometimes cause an uneven application of the embroidered letters.

Once cool, just hang and enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!  -Beth
