Lucky Banner: Free Printable

Lucky Shamrock Printable Banner & St. Patrick's Day Shelf

I'm so excited to share my St. Patrick's Day shelf with you today! It was so easy and inexpensive to put together. I love the look of burlap, but I really don't like cleaning up the mess after crafting with it...so I made a mess-free printable version of a St. Patrick's Day banner. It is super cute on it's own, but I added a little extra to give it some fun. You can also see how to make the St. Patrick's Day Clothesline Art here.

Lucky Shamrock Printable Banner

First, I printed out the Lucky Banner (download links at the end of post). If you don't want it to say "Lucky", I have also made a shamrock banner available for download. I recommend printing on cardstock for best results. Then, I carefully cut the banner pieces out.

Next, I painted a thick coat of Mod Podge over the shamrock shape. It dries pretty quick, so you need to move fast.

My favorite part - glitter! Just dump the glitter over the banner piece and let sit for a minute or two. Then, carefully dump the glitter off onto a scrap piece of paper and tap to get the excess glitter off.

Now your shamrock looks extra sparkly and festive!! Repeat the glittering process to any of the banner pieces.

Carefully poke holes one both top sides of each banner piece. I used a thick needle. Then, thread your twine, embroidery thread, or whatever you like to use through the banner pieces to put it together! Leave a bit of extra string at each end.

Tie or attach your banner to a shelf, mantel, or wall. So cute, and so simple! Even better - it's free!!

Rainbow & Gold Jars

On my shelf, I also wanted to add some rainbow - so I bought Skittles, had my daughter help sort the colors and layered them in my apothecary jars. Topped with some almond Kisses {or Rolos}, we're all set for St. Patty's Day!
