St. Patrick's Day Cutting Board Craft

I think I better change my tag line to repurposed and re-loved and crafts.  I'm loving just messing around in my office with all these craft supplies.  Today I found a cute little cutting board and some shamrock napkins!

Yep, once again I found the cutting board decoration at the Dollar Tree.

It's not a real cutting board for sure but it is pretty darn cute the way it is.

First I painted the whole thing with white craft paint and then had a change of ideas half way through so I removed the top layer of his sign.

It was attached with glue and 4 tacks and came off quite easily. 

I sanded the surface and repainted the cutting board shape. 

Now comes the fun part...

If you've never decoupaged with napkins you're going to want to try it! 

It is so easy to do and looks amazing! 

So first I separated my napkin in to 3 layers, I found my napkins at Marshalls.

I'm only using the top layer of the napkin with the decorations, I use the other layers to clean up when I'm finished.  

I gave my painted cutting board sign a coat of Ultra Grip from Fusion Mineral Paint but you could also use Matte Mod Podge. 

I once did another project using Ultra Grip and an iron, that was another great way to adhere scrap book paper to a surface. 

So, I laid down the top layer of napkin onto my Ultra Gripped surface and rolled a paint bottle over it to flatten out any bubbles.

Next, I gave the top of the napkin an additional coat of Ultra Grip as a sealer. 

Now,  I like simple things so I am not going to add a phrase or picture to this cutting board, but you could. 

I like it just the way it is.

You could hang a simple tag on it or leave it plain. 

I used a ripped strip of painter's cloth and raffia to string through the hole as a hanger and called it a day!

It looks gorgeous on my mantel and is the perfect simple St. Patrick's Day decoration that doesn't scream "Kiss Me" all over it!
