St. Patrick's Day Banner (with printable)

I've got a fun printable for you today!  Phee and I used this printable to make two different banners this weekend.  I love versatility!

I made some St. Patrick's Day shapes: rainbows, gold coins, and shamrocks.  The printable has those shapes in black and white.  I printed them out on white card stock for Phee to color.  After she did her coloring, I cut out her shapes and then we stapled them to some glittery green rickrack ribbon I had in my stash.  I wanted to use cotton balls to make the clouds fluffy white, but Phee declined.  I still think it would be a nice touch.

Phee proudly hung her banner up on her bedroom wall.  I love that she is so proud of her projects.  I also love the fact that each new project displaces one or two that are really old.  In this case, we managed to throw away a Frosty and gold star from her paper Christmas tree two years ago.  Progress!

I used the print outs as a template to trace onto some glittery green and gold card stock.  After cutting out the gold coins and shamrocks, I used my hot glue gun to attach them to rainbow ribbon.  This banner is hanging in the living room over the fireplace.  I made a second vertical banner to hang on a door as well.  I actually like that one the best!

Do you have some fun glittery St. Patrick's Day decorations?  I'm a sucker for glitter.
