Oh So Very Lucky Plaque

My Bestie, saw this cute decoration idea on Pinterest. The wheels started turning.  How can we do this?  Well.... My girlfriend runs a trucking company, and has plenty of pallets.  We just had to cut them, sand them a little, drill some holes, hook them together.  Seemed like a very fun project, so we shared the idea with the girls.  Everyone was on board, and it became craft night.  First we painted white all over the boards, used a stencil to draw on the phrase. I used my Cricut to cut the stencil, details below.  We used acrylic paint to add some color.  The shamrock is simply made of paper.  I cut out 3 per board, and used decoupage to glue them each other,  add a top coat, punch a couple holes in it...voila a button.  I added a brad to minion the shamrock, some hemp to the bottom, and a metal tag.  Then coated the whole plaque with a clear coat.  I am so happy with this project.  It was fun to hang out, and make such a cute decoration.  It also happened to be national wine day, of course we celebrated that too.
