It’s time for another Spring Craft Blog Hop craft! This time, the focus is on St. Patrick’s Day, April Fools, Palm Sunday, and general spring crafts. If you would like to participate and share your crafts, please link-up HERE.
To kick off the second installment of the Spring Craft Blog Hop, I created a St. Patrick’s Day Arrow Word Wall Art using my Silhouette machine. You see, I’ve been staring at my Silhouette machine for several months now and it was time to dust it off.
- Silhouette machine
- Arrow words – St. Patrick’s Day cut file download *
- 3 shades of green glitter paper
- 1 gold glitter paper
- white cardstock or white vinyl
*To create this wall art, I bought and downloaded the St. Patrick’s Day Arrow Words file for 99 cents.
- Download and size your cut file to the correct size for your frame
- Cut your file out on white cardstock
- Remove the cut words from the cardstock
- Remove the remaining cardstock from the mat
- Center the word cuts and cut your cardstock to the size needed to fit into your frame
- Cut strips of your glitter paper to fit over the arrow word cut outs
- Flip over the cut cardstock and place the strips of glitter paper over the cut-out words
- Tape down the strips of glitter paper*
*You can also lightly brush glue on the back of the cardstock and press on the glitter paper. If using vinyl, you can just stick the glitter paper onto the sticky side of the vinyl.
- Glue down* the inside of the letters that were left behind on the cut mat
- Glue down areas that are popping up on the cardstock
- Once the glue is dry, insert into your frame
*I used a toothpick and tacky glue to glue down the letters and cardstock.
I love my new St. Patrick’s Day Wall Arrow Word Wall Art!

I love St. Patrick’s Day and your wall art is a perfect way to celebrate. I especially like the glitter paper. Great job!
Super cute! I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, but I could totally make something similar for another holiday. Especially with all the glitter. Glitter is my favorite color 😉
Pinch Proof… HA! I love that!!! 🙂 This is a very fun and cute St. Patty’s Day craft. Thanks for sharing.

It turned out very nice Erlene. I am making my list for Santa now and I can see that I need to ask for a Silhouette or a Cricut. Do they do the same thing? I am enjoying the inspiration to get in tough with my crafty side for the Spring Craft Blog Hop 2015! I have a craft in the works right now, hope to complete it today!
I debated for a looong time and I decided to go for the Silhouette but I want the Cricut too…lol. They have different strengths and having both would be perfect! You can search the web for comparisons pros/cons to decide which is right for you.
Oh that is so cute! I am so not crafty, but I think I could do that! I have wanted to change our fireplace mantel for the holidays, but didnt have an idea for St Patricks yet….that would be perfect!
Thanks Laura. It’s so easy to do with a Silhouette. This would be great on a mantel.
Love it! I didn’t know you had a silhouette. Aren’t they so much fun?
Lol…yes it’s been gathering dust since before Christmas. And yes, I can see this little machine will open up so many crafting possibilites.
This is such a great idea! I love the final product! So cute!!
Thank you Terese. It was fun to create.
So cute! Just pinned!
Thanks for pinning Jen!
I love this Erlene! So cute. I think I really need to get me a Silhouette!!
You need to get one! I know you would love it and you could do so much to decorate your new home.
So amazing what our Cameo’s can do!! Love it!! What a great way to add detail. #SCBH2015
I wish I had this machine sooner! I love it and can’t wait to do more with it.
What a fun display! I see projects made using a Silhouette and I think I really need to get one of those! . Thanks for putting #SCBH2015 together.
Beverly you’re so creative and I bet you would have a ball with a Silhouette.
Very cute, Erlene! I love it!
Thank you 🙂
This is adorable! I love the glittered cardstock you used. I will have to see if I can make one with my Cricut since I don’t have a Silhouette, though. I’m so glad to be co-hosting the Spring Blog Hop with you!
Thanks Christie. I’m sure you could easily make something similar with your Cricut 🙂 & thanks for helping with the Spring Craft Blog Hop!
