St Patty's DIY Door Decor

Get your green on! St Patty's Day is coming soon!
You only need a few items for this Patty's Day Door Decor:
Scrap wood ~ same size
Sandpaper
St Patty's Day image
Paint ~ green, white, black
18 Eye Hooks
Needle-nose pliers
Green Ribbon

I found this free printable image at Blooming Homestead
Since the image was square I selected 5 square scrap pieces of wood and traced the image on to each one.
I mixed up my design with a variety of greens and white.

 I also painted the sides of the wood black.


Then I used some sandpaper and sanded the edges down. I also sanded across the top of the image to give a vintage look.
I drilled small holes along the tops of all the squares and along all the bottoms except for the last square.
Next I grab the eye hooks. I wanted to link the eye hooks together so I needed my needle-nose pliers. I bent open the eye and slipped another eye on before closing it back up.
Once all my squares were linked together with eye hooks I grabbed my ribbon. On the top square I thread the ribbon through the top two eye hooks.
I created a bow similar to my Lighted Christmas Presents. There's a video to walk through the steps here.
I added the bow on and trimmed off the extra
And I was ready to hang my new St Patty's Decoration!


Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!
