Do you want to hear something sad? I have no St. Patrick’s Day decorations (except for my painted bottles).
I know it’s not the end of the world, but I wanted something more to recognize the day of green.
So I made a quick and easy canvas to display.
I bought some scrapbook paper and the wood hearts but I had everything else.
The canvas is 12 x 12 so I only had to trim the paper a tiny bit to get it to fit perfectly.
I modpodged the paper to the canvas, then modpodged the trimmed yellow paper on top.
I let it dry about 15 minutes between each layer.
(spell check does not like the word “modpodged” but I’m using it anyway)
Then I used my Cricut to cut out the letters and modpodged them on top of the yellow paper.
I applied a final coat of modpodge over the whole piece to seal it.
Then I painted 4 hearts green and painted a coat of modpodge on top to seal them.
After they were dry I attached them in place with hot glue then hot glued the button to the center.
(sorry, I don’t know what happened to the color on this picture)
Now I have a St. Patrick’s Day canvas to display. Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s Day?
