Lucky Clover Potted Plant

 

We are two months into the new year and I can’t believe it has gone by so fast!  I’ve cleaned up Valentine’s Day and am moving on to the next holiday, St. Patrick’s Day!  I’m was never a big celebrator of this holiday as a kid, but with my own kids, I’m wanting to get more in the spirit and the fun of St. Patrick’s Day.  Part of that, is putting up some St. Patrick’s decorations.  My son is really into finding “clovers” in our yard (I think they are weeds).  So I wanted to bring some clovers into our decorations since he is excited about that aspect of the holiday.  I put together this lucky clover potted plant complete with polka dots to celebrate our luck!

 
This project was simple to put together.  You don’t have to be a professional flower arranger to make this.  The first thing to do is paint your pot.  I just used regular acrylic paint in white and gave it about 2 coats.  Using a sponge brush (that is used for stenciling), I took my green acrylic paint and made my polka dots.  They are very random, no pattern at all.  Then I took my styrofoam half circle and turned it upside down in and placed it in the pot.  I made sure this fit while I was at the craft store.  Then I took my wire cutters and trimmed off the pieces of the clover plant pics I picked up at the craft store.

Love True Love – Valentine Sign

Hi!  It’s me, Liz!  Here again to show you this fun sign I made for Valentine’s Day.  Love True Love.  Isn’t that what Valentine’s Day is all about?  Well I thought this sign would be just perfect to go with any Valentine’s Day Decor.  It turned out super cute and was really easy to make.
Here is how I made this lovable sign:
I used a 1×8 piece of pine that was cut 14 inches tall.  I painted the board using red acrylic paint.  I used 2 coats so it was really covered.  After I let it dry, I used a vinyl stencil and placed that onto the board (my friend cut out my stencil for me).  Instead of using the vinyl as the lettering, I removed the letters so that I could paint in those areas.  After I made sure the stencil was really on there, I used white and pink acrylic paint to paint my letters and hearts inside the stencil.  Before they were completely dry, I removed the stencil so that it wouldn’t pull away any of the paint and I would have nice sharp lines.
