Hello My Crafty Spot readers! It is Lindsay from My Creative Days here to share a DIY project to help celebrate St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow.
I am someone who loves to see the potential in
almost everything. I keep stacks of old wood, miscellaneous metal pieces and odds and ends from all of my projects because I know I can reuse them for something else. This sign is a great example of that. I had a left over horseshoe in our garage and some old, wood boards that I wanted to bring together for a sign on St. Patrick’s Day.
I painted the wood board with a fresh coat of white paint and made it look worn with some rough sandpaper.
I nailed the horseshoe on the sign for the letter “U” in “lucky” and cut the rest of the letters from my Cricut.
I even had some horseshoe scrapbook paper to use! Perfect!
*Tip: I always pick up scrapbook paper at yard sales because it is usually dirt cheap and I use it on so many projects!
I Mod Podged the letters on the board. When that was dry, I put a clear coat on top of the entire sign.
To hang the sign, I added some twine to the back of the board with a staple gun. Easy!
I think this sign would be cute in a nursery, a cowboy/cowgirl room or even on a gallery wall in a family room. We are all lucky for different reasons and this sign definitely celebrates that.
