St. Patrick’s Day Banner

St. Patrick’s Day Banner

The top o’the morning to ye, my friends!  Today I have a super fun St. Patrick’s Day banner to share with you made with Really Reasonable Ribbon and the St. Patrick’s Day Creativity Kit from Polly’s Paper Etsy.  I had to take down my beautiful Valentine banner…and my mantle looked so barren, that I decided to dress it up with the wearin’ o the green!

St. Patricks Day Banner 01Of course, my master plan was to have my mantle all beautifully decorated…but on the very day that I completed this banner, the drywall crew showed up to begin the repairs on our home from the water damage we incurred from broken pipe.  So my living room is hermetically sealed right now, and I have no access to my mantle.  So I had to improvise. Sigh…..

This is a massive banner, measuring more than 4 feet in length.  All the papers and images come from the kit, and I just added a few paper rosettes, buttons and fabulous ribbons and flowers.  Let’s take a closer look, shall we?

St. Patricks Day Banner 05This is the first panel on the banner.  I stitched the pre-cut papers onto this gorgeous 1.5″ Cream Mesh Ribbon.  This is the most gorgeous stuff!  It has a slight sheen to it, and is soooo soft and pretty.  It was the perfect match for the lively Celery Green Plaid Ribbon I used to tie bows on either end of the banner.  I topped the bow with a pretty Off White Chrysanthemum and then added white cosmos and green sweetheart blossoms from the green and white variety pack.  Aren’t they perfect for St. Pat’s Day?

St. Patricks Day Banner 06Here are more of those sweet blossoms on the next panel where they adorn the LUCK greeting and the lucky horseshoe.

St. Patricks Day Banner 07You can see how great these greens work with these blossoms and the cream mesh ribbon.  It’s a match made in heaven!

St. Patricks Day Banner 08I tucked a whole cluster of them into the lid of this cute green teapot. You know how I love my tea!

St. Patricks Day Banner 09And they add so much texture, color and dimension to this panel.  I hope Bonnie has lots of these in stock, because they are so perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!

St. Patricks Day Banner 10Here you can see how I stitched along the cream mesh ribbon…and you can say hello to the Grand Marshall of the St. Patrick’s Day parade and his lovely wife!

St. Patricks Day Banner 11The banner is finished off with another bodacious bow tied with my Zutter Bow-it-All Tool and topped with another off white chrysanthemum.  I wish you could see this banner in person…it’s so festive and fun.  The perfect pick me up for the end of winter.  It will look great on my mantle…once I can hang it there.

So, what do you do for St. Patrick’s Day?  We generally go out for fish and chips…and of course we wear green, so we don’t get pinched!  And, I always make a loaf of Irish Soda Bread which is almost as yummy as this banner!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy

    I have never decorated for St. Pat’s Day, but this sure makes me want to do so!!! I love all those vintage images. What a spectacular kit! You did it justice, that is for SURE! I love all the little details. You are such a creative designer and artist!

    Wow….this is stunning…I just had to pop over here and tell you how much I love it!!! Every single banner is incredible! I have a very long mantel, too and this would be a fantastic project for me to do as I have a St Patty’s Day dinner here every year…my guests would think “me” so smart>..lol!! I have a tiny little one I use and after seeing this one, I should just toss it out…I “thought” it was good, until I saw this beauty!! Stunning!!

    Oh my! wow, this is just so awesome, really adore St. Patrick’s day and this banner would just be so awesome in my “celtic” living room. Your style is just so remarkable. sorry haven’t been able to comment for a while, been working on my f250 and just wrapping it up enough to get it to a diesel guru to diagnose why it isn’t working right after paying thousands to someone else to upgrade it…

      Oh, and so sorry to hear about the broken pipe and no access to your mantel, hope they fix it quickly (wish I was there, done so many projects like that over the years.)

    You did it again and nailed the St. Patty’s Banner. This is so cute, now do I have time to make one, lol. I am so far behind and now I have a pinched nerve in my side/back. What a bummer, just when I start to get out of the dull drones.

    Hi Kathy, a truly ST. Patrick’s Day banner. what gorgeous images, and what wonderful accents to accompany them. Hard to pick one tag over the other. They are soo soo gorgeous.

    Your Irish banner is lovely! I love all the tiny details that you added to make it special. I’m having a hard time believing it’s time to decorate for St. Patty’s Day…seems like it was just New Year’s. Hope your home is ready to go soon – know you are ready too! Thanks for sending a wee bit of charm my way today!

    This is absolutely STUNNING Kathy! I am blown away once again by your amazing banners. I can’t help but be inspired to make one for my 100% Irish grandmother to hang on her mantle for the Holiday. Thank you so much for always providing such great inspiration

    Wonderful banner Kathy!! So many wonderful little elements like the buttons in the center of the flowers and the tickets tucked in here and there! I love the images of the little kids, so vintage and sweet! This will be a great replacement for the Valentine’s banner. I look forward to seeing your Easter banner…haha…you started something now!! hugs 🙂

    Your banner will evoke a wonderful setting! We always make traditional corned beef, well maybe not traditional, but it is scrumptious!! A little horseradish and brussel sprouts add flair. Wishing you the luck of the Irish!

    As always this is so beautiful! I love all the wonderful details and know that once your walls are finished it will look wonderful on the mantle!

    Love your gorgeous banner! Lovely display for your home. You’ve used those papers, ribbons, bows and flowers perfectly! I always go to our local parade. My friend’s daughter does Irish dance and is in the parade.

    Beautiful banner Kathy with lots of things going on. The Red Setter evokes so many memories for me. Ours was called Jason or to us Laughing Boy. I loved that dog and have so many funny tales about his antics. X
