Easy St. Patricks Sign...
I have been making St. Patrick's Day stuff!
I asked one of my friends to join me and she hesitated, and was like um, we're Italian! We don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day!!! I loved the devotion to heritage, and it also made me chuckle. I'm not Irish either, but I love any excuse to be festive!
This sign is so easy to make. I was inspired by this cute photo block that I made a long time ago. It's black and white striped. I thought that would be a cute base for a St. Patrick's day sign.
I started with a block of wood, (that I found on the side of the road) that I have sanded down and cleaned up. I painted it a distressed white back in November. Remember this thankful sign?
I bought wood letters and the plan was to do the sign black and white stripes with green letters.
I began by taping my stripes. I used washi tape. It isn't too sticky and comes up nicely. I just eyeballed the width between the stripes, and the level. You can certainly measure if you wish!
Next I painted with black paint. Since the white is distressed I chose to do the black that way as well. I was sure not to cover all of the white completely.
My next step was to remove the tape. I love that crafty paint doesn't take a long time to dry.
I bought these wood letters for this project. My next step was to paint them green, Shamrock Green actually! I sanded the edges of the letters after they were dry, again, to go with all of the distressing happening! Then, I hot glued them to my sign.
Super fast, super easy, super cute! I put this sign up on my mantle. Here is how my St. Patrick's mantle looks...
I love it! This is my first St. Patty's mantle!
