Fireplace Mantle: March

It is St. Patrick's Day time.
Time for some lucky charms, rainbows and lots of green.
I found the subway art at Today's Fabulous Finds.  
 This last week our daughter Grace, was home from school sick. She is a crafty girl. We decided we needed a rainbow for the pot of gold. 
She colored some macaroni in the six rainbow colors. (I took pics but accidently deleted them... I don't wanna talk about it.) Add the gold coins and you have a very cute rainbow with it's pot of gold.
 I made this shamrock last year and had it stuck to a stake in the yard. I like it where it is now. It is made out of 2x4s. I can't remember where I got the pattern or the measurements anymore but if I do I will post them.
 This month the wreath was fun. I cut circles out of dark, medium and light green felt, put the eraser end of a pencil in the center, added a dab of hot glue and glued away. It took about a 1/2 a yard of each color. 
I love it.
The little tray is a trivet I found at the thrift store and added white vinyl shamrocks to. The white kinda broke up the green a bit.
 I found this vase at the same thrift store I found the trivet and had to have it. The yellow flowers I found at Michael's on sale. I got some plain yellow and some polka dotted. The nice thing about buying the fake flowers is you will probably see them again for Easter time! 
 What is a mantle without a bunting. This one is some homemade bakers twine I learned to make here. The shamrocks I cut out of  cute plaid kelly green and gold scrapbook paper. I cut a pattern out on my Silhouette in cardstock and traced it on the cute paper. I got 3 out of each 12x12 inch piece. I put 2 holes in the top and laced it through. It is tight enough that they pretty much stay where they belong.
Hope you all have a 
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
