As I said yesterday, this is about the extent of my St. Patty's Day decorations. Which is weird because I love the color green.
But luck is St. Patty's, right? So the lyrics from the song The Luckiest totally works, right?
I thought so.
Now that we've cleared that up, let's get started.
Here's what you need:
- paint stir sticks
- Silhouette or other cutting machine
- hot glue/wood glue, etc.
- some other sort of wood board
Paint those lovely stir sticks whatever hue you've chosen. It's no surprise that I chose black - I'm so boring and predictable!
While your paint is drying, type up those lyrics in using your Silhouette software. I measured my stir sticks, so I knew how big my vinyl could be. I also really love fonts, so I wanted each stick to have its own font. Lucy appreciated me switching it up a bit, too.
Make sure your stir sticks are totally dry before you try to apply the vinyl! If they are even a tiny bit wet, it won't adhere.
Apply your vinyl to your sticks.
Sorry for the fuzzy picture, but here's all the sticks finished.
Next you'll need some other sort of board. I got this baby at Hobby Lobby. Paint it your chosen hue once again!
While it's drying, head on back to your Silhouette and cut out your words for 'The Luckiest'.
Again, make sure your board is 100% dry before you go to apply the vinyl!
Use your glue of choice (I used hot glue) to glue your sticks and board together how you want them.
Use some ribbon to tie around your decoration.
Hang it for the world to admire.
Or for you and your kids to admire, even though they won't appreciate it.
