Ok, I promise this is my last St. Patrick’s Day post…before I dive into Easter crafting! I live for the holidays, in case you can’t tell. 😉 I came up with this St. Patrick’s Day mantel a little last minute. When I was at Target last week, I found these sturdy wood letters in the Kid Made Modern craft aisle and thought it would be fun to spell “lucky” with them. Then one thing lead to another, and now we have a living room mantel decked out for St. Patrick’s Day! 😉 Read on to see how I pulled together some of my other recent crafts to create this luck-filled mantel.
I had lots of green and gold Martha Stewart craft paint left over from my potted paper shamrocks project, so got to painting.
I used a different color of green for each of the wood letters, applying two coats to each letter.
I then used a rounded brush to add two coats of metallic gold paint to the bottom half of each letter for a scalloped look.
I incorporated my favorite St. Patrick’s Day craft of the year – these paper shamrocks that I displayed in fun geometric pots that I also scored at Target.
I made a quick pom-pom garland in different shades of green pom-poms by stringing them onto baker’s twine.
Finally, I repurposed the shamrock party fan wreath that I made for my St. Patrick’s Day dinner party by hanging it over the mantel mirror.
I love all the shades of green and touches of gold! I’m hoping this mantel will send a little extra luck our way this St. Patrick’s Day!
