St Patrick’s Day Art: use an inexpensive dollar store canvas to create this DIY St Patrick’s Day Art that says “I Feel Lucky”.
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.
- 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.
I like how it’s not over the top St Patrick’s Day, just enough to make you smile. 😉
With a little St Patrick’s Day art work, life really is a party! Hope you’re feeling lucky today too.
