St. Patrick’s Day is just a couple weeks away, have you started crafting yet? Today is Day 2 of our 17 day celebration of St. Patrick’s Day Food and Fun, and we are sharing this adorable, St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanging.

Whether you are Irish or not {I have just a little in me}, everyone is green on St. Patrick’s Day with just a little “Luck of the Irish!”

Super cute, huh? I’m so excited with how it turned out. And with just a few simple supplies, you can whip up this Door Hanging in 30 minutes or less.

Let’s gather our supplies…

St. Patrick’s Day Door Hanging Supplies:

  • Wooden Shamrocks and Luck – I bought mine from Pick Your Plum, but you could probably find them at any craft store or cut out your own
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Scissors or Utility Knife
  • Modge Podge and brush to apply it with
  • Letters – I bought stickers, but you could also use stenciled letters or a Silhouette
  • Ribbon to hang with
  • Belt buckle to hang from


  1. Pick Your Plum is a daily deal craft supply website, if you follow my Facebook page you may have seen me share a few deals that I think my readers would like {and that I like}
  2. When you purchase scrapbook paper, be sure to get 2 or 3 pieces of the same sheet, in case you mess up and have to drive 20 minutes back to the store to get more paper {not that I know anyone that did that or anything}
  3. If you can’t find shamrocks or the word Luck – this same technique would work on any letter or shape, in fact I think it would be make a great Spring project too
  4. The Modge Podge helps to seal the scrapbook paper, apply after you cut out the shamrocks and let dry

  1. Apply the spray adhesive to the shamrock, and carefully lay the paper on {the picture shows the back side} Let dry about 5-10 minutes
  2. Using a Utility Knife or scissors, cut out the shamrock. Apply Modge Podge with a foam paint brush. Let dry at least 15 minutes.
  3. Lay out the shamrocks to get the spacing right, attach to the ribbon with glue dots or a hot glue gun and apply the letters

  1. Attach the Luck word to the ribbon with glue dots or a hot glue gun
  2. Attach the belt buckle by threading the ribbon through and cutting a very small hole for the tang to fit through
  3. To cut the ribbon on the bottom, fold it in half and cut at an angle down

This was a really fun project, even though we had some delays with an extra trip to the store, but it was well worth it!

Follow along every day for a little “Luck of the Irish”
