This was my inspirational piece.
I didn't have a picture frame and didn't want to go buy anything. I hit John's wood scrap pile and found this piece of poplar.
I painted the edges brown.
I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the board and distressed it. I mod podged the paper to the wood and let it dry, completely. I then used a belt sander to blend the edges.
I drew a tree trunk on the back of a piece of wood grained, brown cardstock. I cut it out.
I painted the entire cardstock with Mod Podge and added the tree trunk, shamrocks (that I cut using my Silhouette), and letters that spell "LUCK" also cut on my Silhouette. I added a piece of brown ric rac.
After the mod podge was completely dry, I added a heavy layer of mod podge over the entire project.
I glued a button to the end of the ric rack.
Here's the finished project. Thank you, Lindsey at Inspiring Creations. You inspired me!
