a {Lucky} Mantel + Shamrock Art Tutorial

Its your LUCKY day! 
Just in time for St. Patty's day! A quick little DIY art project!

 I apparently don't own St. Patrick's Day decor...
so I made myself some.

I saw this pin on Pinterest :

I looked through my scrap bin and found some pieces of brown and green burlap.

I then cut out a shape that resembled the one in the above photo and traced it onto the green burlap. Cutting out four "leaves".
I then threaded a large needle with twine and strung the leaves together. I then pulled it closed and it gathered the leaves. 

Once I got a shape I was happy with, I used hot glue to attach it to my brown burlap. 
I then cut a "stem" shape out and hot glued it on too.

I couldn't figure out how to hang the burlap, but decided to mount it to a piece of cardboard for stability. I just hot glued my twine to the back.
All finished! 

This project took me all of half an hour. 
I am pretty sure it took me longer to gather and arrange all the green items for the mantel!

I do love to celebrate the wee bit o' Irish in me! 

I would love to see your version of this!! Leave me a comment with a link!


  1. Your mantle looks awesome! Good work taking the original idea and making it your own :)

  2. This is very cute. I love that wood door or whatever that is. Your mantle looks great, pinning it!

    1. It's an old door - or possibly a gate. I think there might be a layer of white paint underneath all the grime! Eager for spring so I can get it outside and clean it up to find out!

  3. Amber, This is just adorable. I love all your great ideas! Pinning!
