to create this door hanger plaque?? (what would you call it?) i used:
shamrock placemat from JoAnn's for under $2.00 (on sale)
jumbo size green glitter from any craft store (mine is from JoAnn's) 4oz container (you will have leftover)
Mod-Podge (either matte or hard coat)
flat brush, x-acto knife or any other sharp knife
yarn or ribbon for hanging
first i covered the area i wanted to sparkle with Mod-Podge using my 1/2" flat craft brush. immediately, sprinkle the area with glitter:
allow to dry 1-2 hours. shake access glitter off. apply a coat of Mod-Podge again to seal the deal:
Mod-Podge dries clear, so don't panic when you see a white coat on top of your glitter.
with X-acto knife i made an X-shaped cut and "threaded" through a piece of brown yarn (that's what i happened to have at home, you can use pretty green or white ribbon).
my kids love St. Patrick's Day. they had their leprechaun traps ready a month before the actual holiday. thanks to Daddy (and to some magic from the Electronics Snap Circuits Kit) - the alarm will sound once a little leprechaun is caught in our homemade trap.
i also, painted my son this shamrock tee. it's a Target green tee ($4.99) with a "vintage" shamrock painted on it. let me know if anyone would like a tutorial. Nina's leprechaun tee is in the works...
