In trying to keep with my Lucky theme for my St. Patrick’s Day decor I made this little Lucky board to sit on my shelf. This one is so super simple and quick!
First start with a board and paint it white. Then pick a really cute piece of cardstock and cut it to the size you want. Then using Mod Podge adhere it to your board. Here is my board with my cute paper
Wait for the Mod Podge to dry then add a cute vinyl word. My vinyl says “Lucky as can be!!”
Add some Mod Podge over the top to seal everything together and let dry. I think this turned out so cute and took no time at all!

I love Chalkboards! I love words and so chalkboards are the perfect solution for me. If I didn’t have them, I would be one of those people who hung words all over the house using construction paper and scotch tape.
If you are not sure how to make a chalkboard, I tell you how to do it here. It really is easier than you think.
I wanted my chalkboard to have a little something extra and unique detail. So, I added a little bit of vinyl love. I have done this a couple of times and every time I do it, I love it more and more.
Now that you have your chalkboard all decked out and you are not sure what to write on your board-I have a hundreds of quotes on my Chalkboard Quotes Board on Pinterest.
If you are wanting some simple tips on how to write on your chalkboard-I did a whole post all about this as well. Simple, life changing tips. (Well not really life changing, but you get the idea)

I would love it if you followed along.
I pre-painted the blocks black. Last year we let the boys paint and while they did do a good job it took forever to dry.
I cut a vinyl J and Y out of the metallic red vinyl and covered it with transfer tape.
After a demonstration from me the boys applied the vinyl letters to their blocks.
The boys then tied a red ribbon on the bell. After that was done they wrapped the Joy block set in celophane wrap and curly ribbon. They were very excited to give them to their moms!
I know that I am not the only one who is intrigued when the title has simple in it. Right?
It seems like all we do this time of year is run, run, run & run some more. We love the idea of giving a handmade gift to friends, neighbors, or co-workers, just not all the time and effort it would require.
Am I right? Well, today is your lucky day! I have a truly simple project that will take minutes to do and the results look like you took forever. Everyone will be wondering how in the world you have time to look so fabulousand have time to make a homemade gift that doesn’t look like your 5 yr. old helped.
First you need to gather all of your supplies.
Now that you have adhered all of your vinyl letters, you are good to go. I told you that it was easy!
These are darling hung on a wall, or displayed with plate holders. (dollar store) You are going to be the talk of the town if you not only make them, but give them as well.
Easy gifts rock, but easy gifts that take 10 minutes & make the recipient feel loved are Fantastic!
