I thought it would be fun to do a little decorating for St Patrick’s Day, it’s still so snowy and cold here that thoughts of spring and a little green are more than welcome! I made this fun “I feel lucky” St Patrick’s Day Art piece in an afternoon with just a few supplies.

St Patrick's Day art supplies


  • dollar store blank canvas
  • green craft paint
  • alphabet stencil
  • black sharpie marker
  • gold leaf adhesive
  • imitation gold leaf

How To Make It:

I started with an unpainted canvas from the dollar store, and some green craft paint. I gave the canvas two coats, and let it dry completely.

Then I used an alphabet stencil, and wrote the words “I” and “FEEL” with a black sharpie.

For the word “LUCKY” I outlined the word in pencil.

Then I used some special glue for gold leaf -that I had left over from this silver leafing project. I used a small paint brush to carefully paint inside the letters.

Next I let the glue set 15 min., according to the package directions, and then laid a sheet of imitation gold leaf on top, and burnished it down to the glue.

I used a paper towel to rub off the excess, and reveal the gold leaf lettering.

It turned out so great, and it was so inexpensive to put together.
