With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought it was time to dig deep into my Irish roots for a project. Actually, those roots might be more Scottish, but since there’s a question mark I go ahead and assume my ancestors came from a little further South. Especially in March. I don’t usually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, but it’s a holiday I enjoy, so why not? This banner was pretty quick to make, but also a good size so it looks like I tried harder than I did. Between you and me, those projects are kind of my favorites.
This one is easy. Print out these four pages on card stock.
Cut out all the pieces with a good pair of sharp scissors. Punch holes near the top of each letter or shape, making sure to put two holes in the top of the L so it will hang straight.
Cut a piece of baker’s twine, ribbon, cord, string, yarn, or whatever you have to work with that’s six feet long. String the letters and four-leaf clovers on and space them out evenly.
Tie a loop in each end and hang it. Done. Don’t you feel a little bit Irish now?
On a side note, I can’t WAIT to show you March’s Hot Pad of the Month – look for it next Wednesday!
