On St. Patrick’s Day, many have corned beef and cabbage for dinner or green eggs for breakfast. In some cases, people will give small gifts in honor of the holiday such as chocolate coins wrapped in gold foil. One way to make this even more fun is to make a good luck name plate just for the occasion. All you’ll need is a few items to put the project together.
What you’ll need:
Step 1. Cover the lid in gold cardstock. Wrap it all the way around the outside and on the inside bottom of the lid, then glue it down with Mod Podge.
Step 2. Draw large four leaf clovers on green cardstock, then carefully cut them out.
Step 3. Cut two strips of green cardstock that wrap all the way around the inside of the lid. Use the scissors to make vertical cuts halfway into the strip so you’ll end up with two green strips that resemble grass.
Step 4. Use the Mod Podge to adhere the uncut part of one strip onto the inside of the lid. Use more of the glue to adhere the second strip onto the first; it creates the illusion of thicker grass.
Step 5. Use Mod Podge to adhere the four leaf clovers on the second strip so they poke out from the grass.
Step 6. Dab some gold glitter glue on your finger, then lightly rub it along the edge each clover so you only leave a touch of gold on each one.
Step 7. Use a thin black marker to write the person’s name on the front of the name plate.
Step 8. Give the project plenty of time to dry before putting anything inside the lid.
