St. Patrick’s Day Decoration


Mod-podging pictures onto wood letters is an easy and fun way to make a simple St. Patrick’s Day decoration. This project will take just a couple hours from start to finish… including the drying time for the Mod Podge. Want to make your own? Here is how!

Materials Needed:

  • Wood letters (I got mine from Cut-It-Out for $13.99)
  • Pictures- I used 4-6 pictures for each letter. I printed these at home on regular computer paper.
  • Paint- I used 3 different shades of green
  • Mod Podge
  • 2 Sponge Brushes; 1 for the paint & 1 for the Mod Podge
  • X-Acto Knife & cutting board

  1. Paint the back and sides of your letters. Let dry completely.
  2. L your photos on top of each letter to get an idea of the spacing and arrangement you will be using.
  3. Place a thin layer of Mod Podge on your letters. Place your pictures on the mod podge and smooth out any wrinkles in the paper.
  4. Brush one last coat of Mod Podge over the top of your pictures and let it dry completely.
  5. Flip your letters over so the pictures are face down. Using your X-Acto knife, trim the excess paper from around each letter.

Display & enjoy!

    I would buy some small frames for our hallway when we move to put the kids pictures in. Then maybe some letters to put “family” above them.

    I would buy the remaining frames I need to complete the gallery wall in my living room. I love Cut it Out frames!

  3. Jennifer Almond says

    I definitely would be buying frames for my kids rooms. Just a bunch of different ones, I love all the double layers.

    I’d buy the word LOVE and display it in my kids’ room so that they know that they’re loved everyday
