This fun little creation was made out of a 1x1 that I cut down into 1 inch blocks ... one side says "LUCKY" and the opposite side says "IRISH" ... it the centerpiece on our table this year!
I decorated the end blocks with Shamrocks on three sides ...
Here's how they look displayed on our table:
The bucket was actually created about 3 years ago ... just a plain white bucket that I accessorized with ribbon and some foam shamrock stickers. I've used these as both a candle holder or a vase.
The "LUCK" block was created in Chelan during our "Chocolate, Wine, Cheese & Crafting" weekend with my sister and her hubby. Its a 2x4 that I cut down making the final dimensions 2x4x4.
The "LUCK" banner was created over Super Bowl Weekend ... I had already made a "LOVE" banner for Valentine's Day and enjoyed it so much that I decided to create something similar for St. Patrick's Day. The letters were cut from tag board, then decoupaged with decorative paper and flower embellishments. I finished it off by wrapping the edges with hemp rope.
I think this last one is my personal favorite ... made from a 3x3 fence post cut down into 13 and 18 inch blocks. I really love the combination of the black and green colors, and the letters are so playful which is appropriate given the message :-)
Thanks for taking the time to check in and see what I've been up to. I'd love any comments if you'd like to leave one. Hope you have a very "Lucky" St. Patrick's Day ... Cheers!!!
