Just a Shamrock hello and a wee bit of luck and fun for St Patrick's Day to Ya!
A banner of Shamrocks from the Dollar Tree I purchased last year, I knew I would use them
sooner or later!
I really did not do that much this year for an Irish Lady!
I wanted to share my Hair Spray trick!
You see I needed a nice big green bow and wanted green ribbon on my already made Burlap Wreath from an earlier post. I had planned for days to get that green ribbon! Have you just wanted to do a project, like right now at that moment?
Well an idea came to me. Fabric ribbon, I have a fabric stash! So I Found just the right material, but it was too limp to make a bow? Hum? Checked the house for spray starch, found some from 10 years ago, it was full but the spray tip was missing, go figure! I tried every spray tip I could find in the house, crazed but no luck! Not wanting to go to the store, I came up with the idea "Hair Spray". I had just the Hair Spray too stiff for my hair! YES!
I cut the width I wanted, ironed out any wrinkles and went outside where it was sunny and warm to spray the strip and let it dry.
I sprayed 3 times heavy too, letting it dry each time. This worked for me, I was happy with the stiffness.
Any firm hair spray should work.
I could use a bow making class, but I did it!
This should be a pot of gold instead of a pot of cones!
I love white candles, you can do so much. I just added some green ribbon
And glue stick. I told you, I did not do a lot, but a little is good sometimes?
I love my chalk board, use it all the time, this one is in the dining room.
Take Care, Marilyn
