A Lucky Treat!

Here we go, another St. Patty’s Day Post. But are you really surprised, we all know I’m obsessed with anything holiday related! I found a photo on pinterest for inspiration and fell completely in love! These tasty little treats look so official I had to make them! It doesn’t hurt that it’s super simple as well!

I used my usual sugar cookie recipe as always! Once you’ve finished baking your cookies, let them cool completely!  Next step is to melt your choice of chocolate. I went with dark chocolate because it is my favorite and I love the bitter-sweet combo! Dip the left corner into the chocolate and place on wax paper. Now it’s time to embellish! Before the chocolate hardens, grab your sprinkle of choice and cover as desired! Place in freezer until chocolate hardens back up and you are all done!!

Shamrock Wreath!

Hey guys! St. Patty’s Day is right around the corner and this Irish Girl has a DIY that is super adorable! I love this day because it literally is just an excuse to gather with friends and celebrate my heritage! For this DIY, I didn’t want to do anything too over the top since you all know my favorite kind of decor is anything neutral. So I didn’t want to make anything super green, with tons of tulle or glitter…

  • 1 package of Lima Beans (I used baby lima beans)
  • 1 Package Split Peas
  • Card Stock
  • Foam Wreath
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Burlap

 

The first thing you will need to do is just start gluing your lima beans all over the foam wreath. You want to make sure you keep them lined up in some sort of order. I did mine on a slight diagonal, it isn’t perfect but still looks neat and clean which I LOVE!

Next you will need to trace a shamrock onto your card stock, cut it out, and then glue your split peas directly onto it! Be careful as the peas are small and you don’t want to burn your precious little fingers! Make sure to clean up any of the hot clue webs left behind!

Now just glue that in the desired place on the wreath. I angled mine in a lower corner! Then tie a burlap knot on top for hanging and you’re all set! A simple but chic way to decorate for St. Patty’s Day!

You can place over your fireplace or do as I did and frame it out above your bed!
