Go Mama Monday - Lucky Me!

Happy Birthday to me!! The big 35!!
One more for St. Paddy's before we switch to Easter mode!
I wanted to make a sign for my mantle. I originally thought I would get a block of wood from Home Depot. Time ran out and I just got everything at Michael's.
Make sure and check their clearance section. Look at all this glitter for 1.00!! What a steal.
A rainbow of fruity colors. On sale for 79 cents a bottle!
I painted the board a traditional kelly green and sprinkled it liberally with my dollar glitter while it was wet.
Then I painted each letter in succeeding colors of the rainbow. I didn't guess very well on how some of the colors would look on the wood and ended up mixing some to get the shades I wanted.
I wanted a clover to go in between my two words but couldn't find anything I liked. I hoped it would work without it, but the space was bothering me. I made a ribbon clover and put a gold coin in the middle that was left over from making this wreath.
And VOILA!!
The letters and ribbon clover are hot glued onto the sign.
I kinda really like how it turned out!! Not at all how I first envisioned it, but awesome just the same!!
