Here is a quick, easy, and mess free project for St. Patrick’s Day. Do you decorate for St. Patrick’s? It’s so hard for me to decide…St. Patrick’s after Valentine’s Day or Spring. At least for the moment, my brain is thinking St. Patrick’s Day, so I decided to make this cute wall hanging. The best part is that it was so easy! No painting with this project, just a bit of vinyl and it was done! I love those kind of projects.
Last week, when I was at the Dollar Tree, I found these glittered shamrock signs. The outside is cute, but that inside…eek! It had to go. For $1, I figured it was worth the makeover.

Here’s what you need:
- Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
- 3 Shades of Green Vinyl (I used Celedon, Key Lime Pie, and Lime Tree Green)
- Chalkboard Vinyl (you could also use Black Vinyl)
- Shamrock Cutout (I found this one at Dollar Tree)
- Cut File
Start by taking out the center and then tracing the shape on the back of a piece of chalkboard vinyl.
Cut that out, remove the backing, and place it over the existing design. Looking better already!Next, cut out the design in three different shades of green vinylLayer the vinyl.
Normally, when I make a multi-colored sign, I follow this tutorial. But, since I wasn’t exactly sure how the vinyl would fit on the shamrock, I decided to layer the design before I put it on. I applied my clear transfer tape to the first layer, picked up the vinyl, and aligned with the second layer. Then, repeated with the third layer.Apply the entire design to the shamrock shape, poke a hole in the center, and attach it back to the glittered shamrock.
I might be slightly biased, but I think it’s looks so much better than the original!
