Decorate To Celebrate #70 - St. Patrick's Day

I am so happy it's finally March!!! It just means Spring is right around the corner, 
but before that gets here St. Patty's Day will be upon us along with all things green!  

Today over at Decorate To Celebrate we want to see how you celebrate this lucky holiday.  I needed to add something more to my home decor stash so I created some fun festive blocks.  I had my husband cut some small blocks that measure 1 1/2", then I painted them with some green acrylic paint.  I used Kate's ABC's to cut the pattern paper into scalloped squares and for the letters.  I used Mod Podge to attach the paper to the blocks.  The horseshoe is cut from Create-A-Critter 2 and the shamrocks are from Designer's Calendar.  I glittered up those three cuts for a bit of sparkle and shine.  I inked around all the corners of the blocks with some ColorBox Dark Brown Chalk Ink.  I then sprayed the front of the blocks with some Elmer's spray glue to solidify the glitter and letters.  I had some gold wire ribbon in my stash that I attached with a glue dot.  I am happy with how this turned out! I hope you get your green on and play along with us over at Decorate To Celebrate, and remember you can always submit Birthday projects too!

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
