Lucky Shamrock Banner

  St. Patrick’s Day and Easter are so 
close together this year, I am trying 
to get a head start on some 
of my decorating.

I don’t usually decorate a lot (as much as Easter 
and Valentine’s Day) for my favorite 
Irish holiday.  But I have to make a few
new things every year. 

I made a few banners today, here is the first 
one. I used a pretty light green and white fabric
for triangular pieces, and a contrasting 
aqua and green for the long strips.
I picked up these pretty shamrocks at the 
Dollar Tree, and used a variety of leftover
chipboard letters to spell out “lucky” on each
fabric triangle.
I used hot glue to attach each piece together, and 
glued them to a long piece of green ribbon.
I left a bit of space in between to tie the pieces
of contrasting aqua and green fabric.
I cannot decide where to hang it yet, and 
once I do find a spot, it will probably move again!
Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day or go
directly into some Spring decorating?
I find myself doing a bit of early Spring decor
as I get ready for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.
We have quite a bit of Irish in us, so I hope 
to make a few more things before it’s time 
to hop down the bunny trail.

Thank you so much for reading, 
may the luck O’ the Irish always be with you 🙂
