Acute How-To: Glitter St. Patrick’s Day Banner

I made this banner for the upcoming holiday. It was so simple and would be a fun project for kids. You can also switch it up with lots of different sayings and colors for any time of year. Trust me, glitter is appropriate year round.


  • super thick paper { water color paper found in the painting section of the craft store is perfect}
  • mod podge or craft glue
  • craft glitter
  • a small paint brush
  • string or twine
  • small clothespins
  • acrylic sealant {found in the spray paint section}

Step One:

Print your saying {I chose to write “Lucky Me”}, trace it on the super thick paper, and cut out the letters.

If you have a good printer, you can skip the tracing step and just print directly on the thick paper. When I did this my printer jammed {oops!} so make sure your printer is capable of handling the thick paper if you choose to do it this way.

Step Two:

Paint the letters with mod podge or glue and sprinkle on the glitter. Allow the letters to dry for a few hours.

Step Three:

Seal the glitter by spraying the letters with acrylic sealant.

Step Four:

Hang the letters from the piece of string by clipping with the clothespins. You could also string the letters together by punching a hole through each one… but I think the clothespin method is the easiest. I also added a few glittery shamrock cutouts that I bought at the craft store.

Just hang and enjoy – and have a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
