Unless your Irish, it's fairly likely you do not decorate much for St. Patrick's Day, but with just a little bit of crafting you could have a few fun little decorations to match the holiday. For example, check out this print I made and framed. This project easy, quick and cheap. The best kind of project! I used the Word Collage Cricut cartridge, which features great word collages for holidays as well as other themes you could decorate with year-round.
There are a couple of ways you could go about making this project: you could cut the phrases out of craft paper and create a nice layered effect by gluing each letter down, but that would take a lot of work. I did it the easy way and made it with Cricut vinyl.
I used green vinyl and after the cut, I took just a few minutes to weed out (my favorite weeding tool is in this CGull 12-piece tool kit - the kit refers to them as hook tools) all the excess material so that I could seamlessly transfer it onto a sheet of paper. Then simply slip the design into the frame and you're all done!
Now that I think of it, you could also just apply the vinyl directly to the glass of the frame.
Pro tip: Make a print for Easter and re-use the frame. I'm just going to store both prints in the frame so I don't lose the one I'm not displaying.
