Horseshoes are one of the luckiest symbols around, so what better way to invite some luck o’ the Irish into your home this St. Patrick’s Day than by creating a cute horseshoe DIY garland that sparkles and shines? Easy and oh-so-fun to make, this festive decoration will add a pop of green to your classroom, party decorations, mantel and more. Let’s get started!
- Darice 3.5 x 3.3″ Wood Horseshoe Cutouts.
- Green Craft Paint.
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter, Green.
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter, Lime Green.
- Mod Podge.
- Foam Brushes.
- Hole Punch & Scissors.
- Darice Green and Yellow Baker’s Twine.
- Darice Ribbon in Green, Yellow and White.
Using the foam brush, paint the front surface of each horseshoe with the craft paint. Allow to dry completely.
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge over the surface of each painted horseshoe with a foam brush. Sprinkle generously with glitter; shake off excess. Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely before applying another layer of glitter in the same manner for complete, even coverage.
Cut a piece of baker’s twine long enough to accommodate each of the horseshoes with about 2″ of space between each one. Thread the twine through the holes of the horseshoes to string them onto the garland.
