I am usually more on top of holiday decor than I have been this year, but I wanted to make something cute for my room at work to celebrate St. Patrick’s day! I slacked on my Valentine’s decor as well so I made this dual sided to use for Valentine’s Day next year also! A very easy cute way to add a pop of flair for the season!

To create this sign you will need:

1-2x6 dimensional lumber, if you want you could also use a 2x4 for a smaller sign, I recommend a 2x of sorts so it can stand on its own

6- acrylic paints, I wanted and ombre tye dye effect so I chose 3 green shades and 3 pink/red shade

Paint Brushes


Permanent Vinyl

Miter Saw

Orbital Sander

Start by painting both sides, For the green side I faded the paints from dark to light, I simply squirted the paint directly on the board from dark to light and roughly blended them together giving it a tye-dye effect.

I wanted a more banded tye-dye ombré effect so I added shades of pink in bands light-medium-dark, then faded them together using the same brush. I love the look this achieved!

Measure for you cuts! I did 6,7,8,7,6 inch marks and took it out to the saw! I wanted the ends shorter than the middle.

Cut using miter saw, then sand the edges, I left the sides of my blocks bare wood so you wont see the pink/green reverse from the front side. You could paint the side black or white, really any color you desire if you don' t like the raw wood, it just goes with my rustic decor so I left it be :D

I cut the letters out of permenant vinyl with my Cricut explore.

The fonts I used for the Valentine side is called Beautiful Monogram and for the St. Patrick’s side I used Irish Clovers, both I found on for free!

I cut the letters out with my Cricut and positioned them on the on the boards! I sealed it with a coat of polycrylic and let it dry, then repeated for the other side.

I love how this turned out! I styled it in my room at work at the dental office, my patients have really liked it! What do you think?
