How To Create A St. Patricks Day Wall Hanging With The Proxxon Delta Sander

Hi everyone, Tammy here with an easy St. Patrick's Day decor tutorial! I love decorating for every holiday so when I saw this cute graphic in the Silhouette Design Store, I knew I had to use it for something. My husband is Irish so I think he will like this wall hanging :)

Supplies I used:
Wood plaque 10x14
Chalkboard paint
Toner sheet
Deco Foil
Parchment paper
Silhouette machine
Silhouette "Luck" graphic
Gold Shamrock stickers
Gold leafing paint pen
Xyron adhesive machine
How I made it:
First, I printed out a blank black toner sheet from my laser printer and cut out the "Luck" graphic I purchased from the Silhouette Design Store.
I placed the graphic inside parchment paper with Deco Foil on top of it
I ran it through my lamination machine
I removed the excess foil and ran the graphic through a Xyron adhesive machine to turn it into a large sticker.
Then, I sanded the wood plaque, with the Proxxon Delta Sander, until it was really smooth and ready for paint.
I painted the plaque with chalkboard paint and let dry completely
Then I put the "Luck" sticker in place and used a gold leafing paint pen and gold stickers for additional embellishments.

I love how this project turned out! I would love to see your projects, tag me on Instagram @TammySmithSantana
xoxo, Tammy
