good luck.

I didn't realize that it is less than a month until St. Patrick's Day! St. Patrick's Day is very special to me because my husband proposed to me on that day three years ago. In honor of the holiday, (and because I saw the craft store had green burlap), I made a framed decoration.

I found a very inexpensive picture frame on clearance at Walmart. The green burlap is from Hobby Lobby (also very inexpensive ($2.99/yard). (In this picture I had already cut it to match the size of the picture frame insert.)


I then stenciled the phrase "good luck" onto the green burlap with white paint. I debated other words like "shamrock" "lucky" and "4 leaf clover".


I cut out a shamrock from scrapbook paper. I put it to the right and slightly above the word "luck." Then put everything into the frame.



Lucky for me, this didn't take long to make at all, and it was fun!

  32. I arrived here in some round about fashion I couldn't reproduce if I needed to. One blog leads me to another and another and another.... Very cute project, BUT I only have one small problem with it. Shamrocks (the traditional Irish symbol) are 3-leafed, not 4, symbolic of the Trinity. It's just one of those little niggling things those of us who were born in Ireland get goosebumps from seeing this time of year -- ha! Still, it's a wonderful project and I hope you won't take my suggestion too harshly, as it wasn't meant to be so. I'm all about education. Four-leaf clovers DO represent Good Luck, though are not the correct depiction of a shamrock which is traditionally used by the Irish. Love the projects and am on my way to look at more and subscribe.

  56. I used my Cricut with the Doodletype cartridge. If you don't have a Cricut, you could make a stencil from a font on your computer. There are some that look like a typewriter. :o)
