I was so excited to get stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop and discover this shamrock was among my treasures!
The title of it is actually “Happy Clover Fragment”. It’s so delicate and beautiful that I needed to use it right away for the upcoming holiday!
I pulled out these green dollar store place mats to prepare them for the stencil.
I removed the beads to add this gold bias tape on the edges with glue.
(No sewing! Love that!)
When the glue dried I applied a tacky spray to the stencil so it would stick to the fabric.
I chose to use gold glitter glue to sponge through the stencil.
Then applied a light layer of gold acrylic paint.
I placed the stencil fragment randomly in all four of the corners.
This was very quick, easy and fun.
Now our plain old ugly place mats are ready for the St. Patrick’s Day table!
I love this stencil! It’s so adorable!
I still have time to use it on some napkins and rings too!
