All of us are Irish when March 17th gets here, right?
If you forget to wear something green, there will always be someone to remind you that there may be a pinch in store! How many of us have used the excuse that my underwear are green...my socks are green, etc.? Being all in good fun, I offer an idea to fend off pinches at work along with some decorations to celebrate the month of March!
This Celtic luminary is an acrylic tri-frame by Deflecto. I used my Cricut machine to cut-out this glitter paper over-lay (Artbooking cartridge by Close To My Heart) to decorate the frame. I cut one for each frame and filled in on either side of the over-lay with strips of the same paper. I made the shamrocks from the same glitter paper by cutting out 1" hearts and gluing them to a smaller circle of paper. I glued rhinestones to the middle of the shamrock and added a little stem.
To make this a luminary, I placed a battery lit tea light inside the tri-frame. Below is a magnified picture (Thanks to Pic-Monkey) for what it should look like in the dark! Just slightly exaggerated........
Now for the "Pinch Protection"! I use the program Pic-Monkey to edit photos and you can use it to create your own thing. I created the little sign pictured below, saved it, then sized and printed it from a Word document. You can make this any size you want. I used Deflecto's 3" x 4" acrylic craft frame.
Below is a fun craft frame by Deflecto. The border is already green! I just added paper, some signage and decorated it with a little leprechaun clip https://www.etsy.com/shop/stuffandthingsandco?ref=hdr_shop_menu and some coins. (Coins are glued to a piece of paper then clipped on).
I tied some 3-ply jute cording around the bottom and now have a fun decoration to display during the month of March.
Looking for signage? Pinterest has a good supply of free printables. You can Google to find them too.
Hope you have been a little inspired to go and celebrate the Green!
Take time to enjoy life's little blessings and
Live Life with a Flourish!
