Hi folks!  So glad you’re joining me to see my second St. Patrick’s Day pallet sign.  If you had a chance to see yesterday’s We’re a Wee Bit Irish sign you would have seen just how I put these guys together.  It is so easy, not to mention cheap! Both of these stunning pieces of St. Paddy’s decor cost me only $1 for the pack of carpet tacks (thanks to my sista with a steed, the horseshoes were FREE).  Who doesn’t want to feel a little extra luck?

The only difference in the preparation of the two signs is that this one I gave a coat of stain before stencilling. Also, I was running low on vinyl so I just used cardstock to create the mask.  It surprisingly worked just fine, I just taped the edges down with painters tape. I used a dabbling motion rather than brushing with my foam brush.

When the paint was dry I gave the entire sign a good go over with a sanding block, it made it look a bit more worn. I then nailed on my horseshoe with carpet tacks and Viola a sign to bring you luck!
