Lucky Door-Hanger

This year, I’ve resolved that I will start decorating more for the various holidays that my family has traditions for.  As the next holiday for us is St. Patrick’s Day (as well as my mom’s Birthday) I really wanted to get a couple of cute decorations to get into the spirit of things.  I found one really cute welcome sign at Michael’s, but I couldn’t find another decoration that really did anything for me.  I feel like a liar buying, let alone displaying something that says “Irish Blessings” because let’s face it, no matter how hard my mother tries to find Irish ties in our genealogy, I’m not Irish :(.  I guess no fun songs about “Irish eyes” or “She’s my dear my darling one” can be sung for me.  Dang it!

So anyway, I wanted something a little classy with a little bling to fit my personal style.  After searching around a few stores I had a great idea.  This is what I came up with:IMG_7704It’s a felt placemat that was at Marshall’s that I covered with fine emerald glitter, punched with a hole and now is proudly hanging on my door—facing in of course!  It makes me feel so lucky I found it and had such a brilliant idea!

  1. Genius! I love how lacy and art-deco it is! Plus it's always nice to know that none of the neighbors have one just like it. :}
