St. Patrick's Day is quickly approaching and especially since I am part Irish, I like to add a few decorative touches around the house to celebrate this holiday. So, welcome to a week of Irish inspiration!! Today we begin with a bit of lucky artwork – or my “How to Frame a Shamrock” project. While finding a four-leaf clover is especially fortuitous, I think all shamrocks and clovers are delightful and lucky in their own right. Since planting my own shamrock last St. Patrick's Day (see that post here), I had all supplies on-hand for this craft – making it extremely budget-friendly (basically free!)!
You'll need a small frame, a shamrock and some type of backing paper. I thought it would be clever to use a piece of dictionary paper with the word “lucky” in the background.
then, I used the paper that came with the frame to mark where I need to cut the paper (but again, you could just use the piece of glass from the frame to do this).
Once I cut out the paper, I placed the shamrock on the paper and covered it with the frame glass. I did not use any type of glue or tape to secure the leaf, once the glass is on there the shamrock is held in place.
And there you have a sweet & simple St. Patrick's Day craft that takes only a few minutes to create but is sure to add charm to your home all month long!
Doing this project reminded me of how I used to love to press flowers when I was a young girl – I'd love to teach my Emma how to press flowers so don't be surprised if I share a pressed flower tutorial or two later this spring once the garden begins to bloom again! An event which can't come soon enough for me. I eagerly took advantage of the warmer weather this morning and pruned my rose bushes in hope that the groundhog was indeed right and that we may get an early spring!
I hope you enjoyed this craft and feel inspired to add a bit of luck to your home decor this St. Paddy's Day! Thank you so much for reading and sharing!
