So excited to share my St Patricks Day set up. I wanted to do something a little glam since St Patricks stirs up so much talk about gold and what not….
I styled this little set up right outside my front door, I think my neighbors had just as much fun watching me as I did styling and photographing it. =)
The gorgeous rosette four leaf clover was a pretty little craft I put together over the weekend. I searched in a few stores for some cute St Patricks Day decor but really didn't find anything I liked. I whipped out my lime green crepe paper and designed a quick little sheet to frame, this is what I came up with.
What you all think??? cute huh!
Here is the FULL TUTORIAL on how I made the rosettes on the clover. You can pretty much use this concept to glam up anything with some crepe paper rosettes.
Below are a few of the really inexpensive finds I bought, painted gold and used for my sweet St Patricks Set up.
Funny what one $3.00 can of gold spray paint can do….. I painted the black pots of gold which you can find here in chasing-fireflies. I love that site. =) I found the green glass plate(candle holder) and candelabra stick at the Dollar Tree and glued them together and sprayed them up in gold. I don't know how long they will last but for a dollar, I wouldn't have cared to toss them after this shoot. So if your wondering if the pot of gold I made are safe to eat out of… NO, I styled this table because I wanted to show you all my rosette clover and felt it needed some sweets as company. I actually dropped a cupcake inside and frosted the very top with store bought frosting, I then sprinkled lots of edible gold glitter (half way through I realized I was wasting my glitter because these were not edible) DUH!!! That stuff is pricey so I quickly put down the disco dust and picked up my regular MS glitter and used that instead. =) The little flags are adorable and so easy, all you do is download the file, print, cut the flags and tape or glue to stick, talk about easy topper!!!!
