A Lucky Lady Spoolie

I had so much fun making a Valentine's Day spoolie for a swap that I just had to make one for St. Patrick's Day too. This is one lucky lady surrounded by an abundance of four leaf clovers.

This spool was chosen because it has the remnants of green labels on the top and bottom.


Green seam binding was tied around the spool before gluing the clovers cutout onto it. Rhinestones were added to the clovers for some sparkle.



A bird brad, a little rose and a piece of a millinery flower from a vintage hat finished her decor. I may add some glitter around the neck of her dress. 

Here is the postcard I used from The Graphics Fairy blog.


What ideas do you have for St. Patrick's Day crafts?

  4. What a cute spoolie. I have a few old spools on hand and I guess I need to try my hand at some.

    So, so cute!
