Isn’t this Glitter Shamrock Sign so adorable?  It’s the perfect thing to sit on a mantel, shelf, entry table, or kitchen counter.  Best of all, it’s super fast and easy to make!

SUPPLIES

-2×8 wood block (mine was 12 inches wide)

-spray paint

-double-sided adhesive

-green glitter

-twine

DIRECTIONS

1. Spray paint your wood block (I used White in Satin, by Rustoleum) and let dry completely.  Sand the edges and front to distress, then wipe away excess dust.

2.  Create your design in Silhouette.  When you’re ready to cut, select double-sided adhesive, and change your blade accordingly.  The only thing I changed was to NOT double cut.  The first time I did, it cut right through, and I couldn’t use it.  I cut it again, without the double cut, and it worked perfectly.  I would suggest a test cut first, then make any changes as necessary.

3.  When your design has been cut, you’re ready to apply the adhesive and glitter to your wood block.   Be REALLY careful when you’re removing each layer (the yellow, then later the white), so you don’t remove the adhesive at the same time.  When you’re actually doing it, you’ll see what I mean.  It just takes a little bit of a learning curve, but it didn’t take too long before I got the hang of it, and knew what it was supposed to look like.

4. I followed that same tutorial when it came to tips on adding the glitter.  The only thing I noticed with the wood is that it was harder to remove the glitter from the outlying areas, because of the grain of the wood and natural small cracks.  I tried the brush first, and it removed some, but I ended up using a damp rag to carefully go around the lettering and shamrock to remove all of the excess.

Done!  I tied a little twine around one side–it needed a little something–and I was set to go!  I now have my first holiday decoration that has glitter on it, and I love it!  It’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, and it’s calling my mantel’s name!
