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.
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?
