It's cold again! I was so happy with the temperatures we had last weekend but they didn't last that long :( No more working in the garage for now, instead I'm happy doing some crafts.
I don't usually decorate for St. Patrick's day but this year my daughter has kept on asking and asking me about it!
Are you going to do a mantel for St. Patrick's?
No, I'm not, it's only one day, I prefer a mantel for Spring.
Well, you know you can do one for St. Patrick's and one for Spring.
Ha! No, I'm not going to do that!
Are you going to do a tablescape then?
No, I'm not, besides we are not Irish!
Hmmm you don't need to be Irish to celebrate....
Well, finally I gave in! When I told her my plans, she got a smile from ear to ear and I think that pays it all! :)
My husband gave me this bag full of wooden clothespins he had since who knows when, he used them to hold gels in front of the camera (he is a cameraman), but now that he is not a freelancer anymore he doesn't need them.
Time to use them again ;)
With one embroidery hoop, green spray paint, acrylic paints, washi tape (found mine at Target), ribbon and some paint chips I set to work.
The clothespins and hoop got spray painted, it doesn't have to be perfect!
I painted the top surface of some of the pins white before attaching the washi tape. Some others were painted light green and left just like that.
After the tape was trimmed, the clothespins were attached to the hoop, no glue needed. :) I like that I'll be able to re-use them later on.
Three different color paint chips were used for the shamrocks.
The chunky ribbon holds the wreath in place.
A good pop of color from the Lilies and my St. Patrick's day vignette is ready!
That little corner in the foyer is the perfect spot!
