Quick and Easy St. Patrick’s Day Craft

I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day.
It’s not a big highlight at my house. But since Easter is later than usual this year, I thought it might be fun to make something this year. 

I stumbled across this easy idea the other day and thought I could make that using my silhouette and put my own spin on it.
I hit the jackpot last year at a few garage sales with $1 frames of all different sizes and shapes. They are sitting in my garage, waiting for a project. So I grabbed a small one and painted it green. Then I sanded it lightly and put a little stain over the top.
I measured the opening and cut out a piece of foam core board {is that what it’s called??}. I got out my Silhouette and typed a bunch of letters in with a “lucky” toward the bottom. Then I printed it out in black vinyl. And I also printed off just the “lucky” letters in green vinyl, along with a little shamrock that I downloaded from the Silhouette Online Store. 
I put the vinyl on the foam board, except that I peeled the black “Lucky” words off. I put the green “Lucky” on the board in the empty space. Then I found a spot at the top of the board for the Shamrock and I peeled off one of the letters and put the Shamrock there.
The last thing I did was hot glued two coordinating ribbon on the back of the frame. And I was done.
Easy project! 
And you could do this for any holiday  
Easter, Birthday, Valentine’s Day, Christmas, you name it.
Also, you don’t need a Silhouette to make this project. You can get scrapbook letters, stamp it like the original did OR you can design it on your computer and frame it.
So there’s my easy St. Patrick’s Day project. 
Do YOU have any St. Patrick’s traditions?
Do YOU decorate?

    Jen,

    I usually don't decorate for St. patrick's day either, but you are right, there needs to be some color in the house until Easter ( usually when all of my spring stuff somes out.)

    That sign is tooo cute!

  16. LOVE how this turned out!!! It might even talk me into doing something for St. Patty's. I love how clean it is with the pop of green. So SUPER cute, Jen!

  17. SO CUTE.. Love your blog

  18. Kelli @ RTSM says:

    I LOVE this! So cute and simple! I was really hoping this was going to be a printable because I seriously need to change out the Valentine's day one that is still on my kitchen counter:)

  19. Nice….I see myself doing this craft idea for many upcoming holidays. I'll probably do the graphic on my computer.

  20. I love it! how fun!

  21. so cute!
    we don't usually do much, although i try to at least do something little to make it a special day for my kids…. put a few drops of green food coloring in their milk at breakfast, make an 'irish meal' (something with potatoes!), or i have also made green eggs & ham!

  22. Amanda @ Serenity Now says:

    Cuteness, Jen!!!! I have a St. Patty's garden flag, but I don't have anything for indoors. I might need to do a little shopping or crafting. ;) I don't want to go all out, but it's fun for the kids to have some acknowledgement of the holiday. :) Love the ribbon!!!

  23. Amy Kirchhoff says:

    Man…I really want a Silhouette. I did this using paint and stencils b/c I like the messy medium, but these letters are so crisp! Super cute.

  24. Bellenza Wedding Bistro says:

    The green paint you chose is such a vibrant shade, and love the polka dot ribbon to match!

  25. I love this idea. The frame, the art work, the ribbons, it's all so darling!!! Love your blog…so many cute ideas!

  28. Really cute. I just may make the time to do this project!

  29. Carmen @ Life with Sprinkles on Top says:

    Cute! I just love this color green. The ribbons make the project extra cute. I don't have any St. Pat's decorations but I will probably do a little something this year.

  30. I♥naptime w/ Chocolate Sundaes says:

  32. This is so darling! Thanks Jen! I have been debating whether or not to decorate for St. Paddys. I still have some decorations from my daughter's 1st birthday up, including a really fun chandelier I made out of rock candy.

    Hope your weekend was wonderful!
