The Luck of the Irish wall decor was inspired by my Clover Amour Steel Crochet Hooks. I wanted to try them out in a fun way. So this mixed media creation was born! It’s super fun to make because it uses a variety of crafts and skills. You can follow along with the tutorial or just use it as a general guide and come up with your own version. The most important thing is that you have fun!
