I have to admit I have never decorated for St. Patty’s Day. Nor have I ever crafted for it but I got up the urge to make something super cute to style in one of our beautiful cloches we have in store and I am telling ya. I think I might have just changed my own mind. I mean, after all I do love green! This St. Patrick’s Day cloche really started out as a few mini projects within a project that I demonstrated LIVE ON FACEBOOK and rather than walk through each little project step by step I encourage you to catch the replay.
However, I am showing you the finished, styled cloche here for inspiration and a few suggestions for your crafting stash. This project kinda evolved as I went and I was thankful for having a few of these cornerstone crafting supplies from the Dollar Tree in my stash. I’ve learned over the years you can’t always have your projects planned from start to finish but having a few basics tucked away for a rainy day will keep your projects running smoothly.
Supplies to keep in your crafting stash you may not have thought about
- scrabble tiles
- mini jenga blocks
- reindeer moss
- miniature hearts
I used each of the supplies ‚mentioned above in this St. Patrick’s Day cloche project and I was so thankful I had them readily available! Rarely do I have all of the supplies laid out before beginning a craft. Instead, I like to start with a general idea or vision and then let the project evolve like it did with this little beauty.
Did you spot the scrabble tiles? What about the jenga blocks? I used the mini jenga blocks as a stand for the “Lucky” word seen here. I needed something a bit taller than the pot of gold so I improvised by gluing 2 mini jenga blocks from the Dollar Tree end to end and used a third as a base.
Then I added the scrabble tiles, using hot glue, to the jenga blocks! Viola! Simple and it was the perfect little piece for this cloche, don’t you agree?
The clover was another little mini project created fro this look. It was crafted fusing 2 wooden heart stickers left over from the Dollar Tree Valentine’s Day collection! Neat right? I love when I can use basic shapes to create new ones. In this case, the perfect little mini shamrock!
Of course, no St. Patrick’s Day cloche would be complete without a pot of gold. Our pot is a mini terra cotta from, you guessed it, Dollar Tree! I covered wood beads with mod podge and a bit of gold flake for these cute little nuggets!
That’s it folks! all of these little mini projects were brought together in a beautiful glass cloche from Roost and Restore Home to create a beautiful and unique display! I hope you enjoyed this project and be sure to catch the replay on Facebook for a more detailed demonstration of each piece!
