With some of the holiday's the trick is making the décor not look cartoonish or tacky. Big trick.
St. Patrick's Day is coming and I am part Irish on my Paternal side so St. Patrick's Day is big for me. I make my Grandmother's Irish Soda Bread and her Corned Beef and cabbage (I am not a fan of cooked cabbage but my husband loves it). We always have a big gathering of friends and family and celebrate.
Contrary to everyone else, I wear blue on St. Patrick's Day not the traditional green. My Grandmother always said that it is tradition to wear blue, St. Patrick's signature color. The wearing of the green comes from the Irish who immigrated here remembering the Emerald Isle by wearing green. In Ireland, St. Patrick's Day is actually a religious holiday and most of the population goes to church then hits the pubs!
This is a super cute craft and aside from burning my finger with the hot glue it was easy.... EASY!
Gather your pennies and create this crazy cute craft!
You will need:
Pennies - I used $2.84 worth of pennies
Letters - 3D letters, I bought at Hobby Lobby (regular price $2.99 each I got them 40% off)
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Ready for how easy this is.... just glue the pennies to the letters. I glued to all the surfaces, front, top, sides and inside. I DID NOT glue pennies to the bottom of the letters. I did some pennies facing up and some tail side.
Yep that is it! I didn't paint the letters or do anything to them before I glued the pennies to them. The only thing I would caution you on is be careful, a hot glue gun is well HOT! I burned my finger.
So super cute!
Let me know if you try this!
Until next week, be safe!
