Prepping my st patricks project
Ready to start crafting for St Patricks Day?
After gathering my supplies, I started with painting my 12″ round board first in white.
To get a good coverage you’ll probably need to do two coats of paint.
While the paint was drying, I decoupaged my shamrock with my scrapbook paper using Mod Podge.
Now when I did this project, I did not have my Cricut knife or mat so I used a piece of sandpaper to clean up the edges around the Shamrock when the Mod Podge was dry.
I’ve learned I love my Cricut knife but I can craft without it if I absolutely have too!
painting my ST PATRICKS stripes
How did I get those cute black whimsy stripes on my 12″ round board?
With my 2″ foam brush and painted it by hand without any painters tape!
I dipped the edge in black paint and I just brushed across the round board, with my first stripe in the middle.
What is the neat thing about this?
The stripes being less than perfect actually add to the whimsy character and I just added more stripes going up and then again going down the round board.
Making my ST PATRICKS Bow
While my stripes were drying, I then worked on making my St Patricks bow.

What’s so nice about this, you can use ribbons, leftover fabric from other crafts or both!
Assembling my St Patricks Door Hanger
One more thing and this is optional.
I added some gold highlights on my black stripes of my door hanger with a paint pen I found at Hobby Lobby!
These were just random stripes of gold, here and there!
When that was dry, I then grabbed my glue gun and started assembling!
I glued my shamrock in place, a little crooked and on purpose.
Then I glued my Messy Bow in place and added a Leprechaun coin in the middle of the bow.
Then I glued some more coins around the shamrock!
Hanging my St Patricks Door Hanger
I love using 3M command strips to hang my wall decor.
But you can always use left over strips of fabric for a makeshift hanger by stapling them on the backside if you wish.
Another idea, you can staple two pipe cleaners to the backside and use these to decorate a wreath or even a St. Patricks tree…
That is it! Make sure to check out my video below!
