Embossed Shamrocks

Hope everyone had a great weekend.  We received the first substantial snow storm on Saturday with 7 inches of snow by Sunday morning! While the kids spent the better part of the day sledding, I decided it was a good time to work on my St. Patrick’s Day Mantel using these adorable Metal Embossed Shamrocks.

 

I embossed a few quick shamrocks and painted them with alcohol inks.  To add a little more interest, I took a standard hole punch and punched some holes around the outside edges.  Then I glued a light green piece of paper to the backside.   If you are interested in how these were made, I used the same basic steps used in my Easter Bunny Banner.

I attached these shamrocks to a mirror and added a quick banner.    I moved my Lucky Penny Tree from the piano to the mantel to complete the look.

Mr. Hobby prefers not to have a banner hanging down from the mantel at this time of year because we burn a fire in the fireplace every night in the winter and the banners just get in his way.   So I put all my decorations on the top of the mantel – problem solved.   I love the simplicity of the decor.  I can’t believe it is March already, can you?

    So pretty and sparkly! The edge detailing immediately caught my attention. I think it really makes your shamrocks pop!

      Thanks so much for your comments Beverly. They are always appreciated! Looking foward to Easter. I've got a recipe from my Grandmother that I have never attempted and I think I'm going to give it a go for Easter this year . . . may have to test that out first though 🙂

    Aw, love these! With 10 years of Irish dancing happening in this family, I'm a little partial to shamrocks and all things "Irish." 🙂

    I guess you can bring them out again this year. They look so pretty, all with their own design. I am wondering if your kids have inherited the creative gene that you and your husband have 🙂
