Are you getting sick of my bead board projects yet? I hope not because I'll probably keep making them until I have something for each holiday.
Here's my St. Patrick's Day Bead board Decoration.
For the shamrock I used my silhouette. I just searched the online store and found a set of 3 shamrocks I liked. I cut it out on paper and then traced it to the bead board. Then I used a jig saw to cut them out. For the letters I used the font Elephants in Cherry Trees. I don't really recommend cutting such small letters with bead board.
Check out my K - the top painted coating came off while cutting it out. Also my C doesn't like to stay up. I sanded it down to be a little flatter, but it still sometimes falls.
For the colors I used Folk Art Wicker White for the letters, and Folk Art Thicket, mixed with a little white to lighten it, for the shamrock.
I used Americana Staining Antiquing Medium and Thicket green for the glazing. For more tips on glazing and how to make my little stand see my Bead Board Pumpkins post.
I originally wanted to do two shades of green - but since I didn't want to go to the store with 4 kids in tow, I used what I had. I think I like the white and green.
What do you think? Do you like it?
