It's March. In March our world becomes nothing but Irish Dance. I wanted to make a cute little banner decoration for our wall for my tiny dancer. Green, orange and sparkly, she loves it. Here's to a little Luck of the Irish!
I'm also a quick crafter. If the project takes longer than an hour, I feel it's not for me. This fun project took less than an hour and I hand cut the letters and penants.
The letters are cut from the Orange Dazzling Diamond Sticker Sheets from the Buckle Boutique. I used a chunky font and traced them onto the sticker sheet. I used a basic craft knife to cut them out. You can also cut the resin rhinestones with everyday scissors. The sticker sheet is a peel and stick. Once the letters were cut out, all I had to do is peel the backing off and stick the tight to the burlap.
The pennants are cut from green burlap from the DCWV Burlap Stack. I'm in love with the shabby chic messy look of this banner, the burlap can also be cut with a very neat edge, I just like it this way.
Instead of the traditional ribbon or twine, I used a heavy gage copper wire to string the pennants together. On either end I loop and twisted 4 leaf clovers and used them as the hanging points.
The felt shamrocks are sticky back precuts I found in the dollar bin at the craft store.
It is as fun as it is simple.
