One of the bonuses of living in a small town is the local hardware store. We live in a large livestock area in Missouri. Our local store has everything from bee habitats to baby chicks to feed corrals. When I saw that they carried a variety of horse shoes, I knew I could come up with something cute for St Patricks Day. This Lucky Wooden Sign has a pop of gold with a farmhouse feel!
Here’s what you need to create your own Lucky Wooden Sign!
Wood pallet (I got mine at Wal-mart!)
Gold spray paint
Lucky stencil and shamrock stencil (I made mine on my Cricut but you can purchase alphabet stencils and create your own.)
Gold acrylic paint
Begin by spray painting your horseshoe gold. Do several light coats until horseshoe is completely covered. Set aside to dry.
Adhere the lucky stencil to the bottom of the wood pallet. Apply a thin coat of mod podge over the stencil. This will help the paint not to bleed out under the stencil. Allow to dry.
Once the mod podge is dry, begin painting the stencil with your gold acrylic paint.
You will likely need to apply two coats of paint. Allow time to dry – about 2 hours.
Once the paint has dried completely, carefully peel away the stencil.
Repeat the same process with the shamrock stencil.
I love how it turned out! Isn’t it adorable!? It’s the perfect addition to our St Patricks Day decor and blends in so well with the rest of the house!
I’d LOVE for you to pin this image!
