Good Luck {Using Paintable Wallpaper}

A St. Patrick's Day craft!
I actually whipped up this craft weeks ago, but I guess I was "hoarding" it until now.  I have to thank The Crafting Chicks for introducing me to paintable wallpaper months ago.  I had no idea it existed, and I have been dying to try it out for myself.
Come along for a little tut!
Lately I have been on a real frame kick.  (You will see more frames in future projects, I promise!)  I found this treasure at TJ Max.  I just added to its beauty with a little Ralph Lauren faux technique glaze.  This couldn't be any easier.  Paint it on, and then wipe it off.  Not even I can mess that up!
Paintable wallpaper can be found at Home Depot in a HUGE roll that will last you forever for just $18 or so.  I love this pattern.  Just look at all of that natural texture! This is the piece I cut to fit my frame.
I simply spray painted the sheet of wallpaper and slipped it into the frame.  Don't the gold and green look gorgeous together already?!

Can you believe that this was my FIRST project using pages out of an old book?!  I felt kind of bad.  I guess it's because I spent so much energy teaching kids how to read!  And this book looks like a good one, too!  But I snagged it at a thrift store 6 months ago, and it was just waiting to be used!
I just cut strips of paper, folded them accordion style, and kind of squished them until they looked like this...

After agonizing over fonts forever (am I the only one who does this?!), I printed this little "Good luck" on gold cardstock.  It looks brown in the pictures, but believe you me--it is gold!  You know, like a pot of gold!

So I put it all together....
Now I am finally getting in the mood for St. Patrick's Day.
Have a great day, my friends!
