2x4 Lucky Sign

I usually don't decorate for all the holidays {meaning, Christmas was the only one}.

But since Sam is getting older I thought it would be a fun tradition to decorate for ALL of them!

My New Year's Resolution this year was to make more of an effort decorating for each holiday.

Sounds fun... but um, I don't have ANY decorations.

And I am NOT about to go out and buy a ton.

So I will slowly start making some and start a collection.

I started with my St. Patty's Day Wreath

And this weekend I made this 'Lucky' sign.

Although it is really simple, I actually LOVE how it turned out!

I used a scrap piece of 2x4 from a project the hubster did a couple weeks ago,
sanded it down and pained it white.

DON'T SHOOT ME.... but I don't really like spray paint. GASP! That's right, I said it.

I know it is what all the cool bloggers do... but I just don't love it.

Maybe it is user error and I am the problem, but it just never works out right for me.

I prefer paint and a paint brush.

Anyhoodles.... after I painted it I cut the letters out with my Cricut and used the SCAL software and cut the 4 leaf clover.

Mod Podged them on, added a little bling on a couple letters and the clover, wrapped it in ribbon and Wa-La!

My super simple {but adorable} Lucky sign!

  4. I like the polkadots and ribbon and I love the bling too! I'm like you, I don't really have other deco and I like to keep things to a minimum, but it is fun, so I got the stuff yesterday to make a sign for my mantel. You can see it tomorrow (hopefully) on my blog!

  10. So cute! I love the little bits of bling you added to the sign, and the ribbon is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

    I'm hosting a Throwback Thursdays Party, and would love it if you swung by and linked up something you made/bought/did from before blogging. I can't wait to see what you bring.

  11. I'm still on the fence as far as spray paint goes! It never works right for me either, plus i don't have a huge outdoor space to haul pieces outside to paint! I have to resort to painting furniture in my living room!
    I also love that you have a cricut! I love my cricut but it feels everyone in blog world has a silhouette!
