I’ll be the first to admit that St. Patrick’s day is kind of hard to decorate for. All the decorations as the store consist of bright green clover, and there isn’t much to go off of online ether. As I was thinking about some small way that I could bring a little “luck” into my house, all my thinking led me to nature.
I really wanted something with a cross road sign in it. So I decided to make my own little piece of a leprechaun world and bring it inside as the perfect table centerpiece. It even includes a little cross road sign for us to see. Which way is going to be your lucky path? Green stripes or gold?
Are you wanting to make your own little patch of luck for your house? It’s fairly simple. Since it is suppose to mimic nature, don’t worry about getting all the little pieces perfect. Simply glue and place, and (somehow) by the end it all looks beautiful.
1 – gather your supplies: 10 inch cardboard cake circle, a package of moss, stones and sticks from outside, candy apple stick, washi tape, glue gun.
2 – Tape pieces of the washi tape onto cardstock. Cut out the pieces and trim to look likes arrows. Glue your little leprechaun arrows onto the candy apple stick. Set aside.
3 – Start by arranging the larger items – sticks, some rocks, and large pieces of moss. Move those around until you like how it looks. Glue them into place once you’ve found the arrangement you like.
4 – Add the moss everywhere. Be sure to cover up all the cardboard, including the edges. Get it as close to the edge as possible.
5 – Once you’ve added all the moss you want, add the smaller stones, sticks, etc. I added some more moss on top of moss as well, just to give it some different height in places.
6 – Finish off by adding your leprechaun road crossing sign.
Place your little lucky road crossing as a centerpiece on your table. I covered mine with the large glass dome from Pottery Barn. I love how it turned out. Such a great way to bring a little green nature into our St. Patrick’s Day.
