DIY Lucky Clover Sign

DIY Lucky Sign

Happy St. Patrick’s Day My Crafty Spot readers! This is Lindsay from My Creative Days back again with another DIY sign idea (I promise, I do not have “signage” all over my house). 🙂

This sign idea came to me while shopping the valentine clearance at Target a few weeks ago. I am a big fan of shopping after the holidays. Not only am I saving a lot of money, but so many times, I find items that I can use for other times of the year. This DIY lucky sign is a perfect example of that.

I found these wood trays on clearance for $1.99 each. Their regular price was $19.99!

To start making these hearts look less “valentine” and more “lucky”, I painted the pink trim, green.

Then, I painted the inside of the hearts with black, chalkboard paint. When three hearts are put together, they make a clover!

To make the stem of the clover, I drew the shape on paper and Hubby traced it on wood and cut it out.

I painted the stem the same green color that I used on the hearts.

To put the clover together, we screwed the bottom edges of the hearts together and used a nail gun to attach the stem.

To write my “lucky” message, I used chalkboard markers. (If you have not invested in chalkboard markers yet, you need to. They are the best things ever!)

What a transformation! You would never know that these were valentine trays in their past life.

I hope this St. Patrick’s Day is finding you feeling lucky too!

  1. I think it is very creative. I like to think I am a creative person too but I honestly didn’t see the clover made from hearts until you walked me through it.
