St. Patrick's Day Garland

Greetings, Friends! I wanted to pop in today with a quick project that I'm using to decorate my home for St. Patrick's Day this year. A couple of weeks ago my little girl asked if I would make a few more shamrock decorations and I couldn't help but oblige. After all, who knew our three-year-old harbored such strong feelings about holiday decor?!

I wanted to keep things fairly simple, so I stuck with a green, orange, and white color scheme to match the Irish flag.

I cut the large Lucky Shamrock shapes out of Pistachio and the small aperture versions out of Katydid.

I cut the aperture shamrocks into Tundra Simple Scalloped Circle Ornament shapes. I love this ornament shape. It's so versatile and it works with so many other dies. I used a contrasting orange thread for these medallion shapes as another way to tie into the theme. I also used pale green sequins to embellish the scallops and add a bit of sparkle.

The large shamrocks were each embellished a little differently from one another. This one in the center uses the Lucky Shamrock: Celtic Knot Details die to add the embroidery. I went without the layer this time, but I did do some embellishing with dark orange sequins and beads (these came from the Hayride Color Story) to keep things interesting.

This shamrock uses the teardrop trio design along with a heart from the Love Potion Details Die. I think the pop of white from the heart sets off the orange embellishments so nicely!

And this last one uses the embroidered design from the Lucky Shamrock Die to dress up the leaves. I popped another Love Potion Details heart in there for a bit of symmetry. 

So there you have it! A nice little festive garland to make my girl smile. She noticed it right away when she saw it hanging in the dining room (these photos were taken out on the barn because the pictures I take inside never come out well no matter how much editing time goes into them). I hope you enjoyed today's post and I hope you have a safe and happy St. Patrick's Day!
