Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

Here’s a fun little craft that I whipped up a couple of days ago.  It couldn’t be easier, and since I had the tools I needed, it was quite affordable!
I created a little shamrock wall hanging using a tiny little 3” frame.  I actually picked up two of those little guys, some green glitter ribbon and a roll of jute rope. 
Here are my supplies

I love this American Crafts glitter ribbon because it’s a stiff material that worked well with my heart-shaped hole punch. 

I punched out 3 hearts for each wall hanging to create a shamrock shape.  A little glue works to keep them in place on a piece of white cardstock.  I punched a 2 ½” circle out of the cardstock, which is slightly larger than the opening of the frame.
Hot glue on the back side of the frame will keep the cardstock in place as it peeks through the other side.

Some pieces of jute can be attached to the frame with some hot glue.  You can make them any length you want.  I used two pieces that I tied into a knot at the top to make it easy for hanging.

A few little rhinestones complete the look and they are ready to hang.

Here are the deets on my supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Rhinestones: Theresa Collins

Other: Frame, jute, hot glue

Have a wonderful St. Patty’s Day!!
