St. Patrick's Day Mantel

I have never been big on decorating for this holiday, I am not sure why, but I just haven't. I decided this year that I wanted to be more into it and thought it would be fun to do a couple fun things for my mantel. Here is a full picture of it:

**For the Luck frames, I used the frames from THIS Valentine's Decor. I thought it would be good to reuse these for different holidays. They are 3 1/2"x5" Frames. I got some green scrapbook paper and cut them down to size and then cut the word LUCK out in brown vinyl on my cricut. Super Easy!
(Its a little hard to see, but the dark green paper has 3 leaf clovers on it and the other is lime green polka dots!)

**The Subway Art I downloaded and printed HERE @ the Amazing Funky Polkadot Giraffe.
Then I put it in a frame I had on hand.

**For the Vases on the right side:

I have seen so many things like these on Pinterest and wanted to make some for myself. I went to hobby lobby and found the pretty candle stands and bought E-6000.  I had the vases on hand....I bought a bunch at the Dollar Store awhile back.  

Then I glued the vases to the stands! Super Simple!!

Inside the vases are BEANS!! I saw a cute idea that someone had done for Valentine's by spray painting beans. I fell in love with the idea. I just had to do this in colors for St. Patrick's!! 
I only used a bag and a half for this project. I left a layer of white, then painted a layer of light green and a layer of dark green.
They were so easy to paint!! I had to do a few coats to get them all colored, but it dried pretty fast so it wasn't bad. 

Here is what they look like:

I LOVE the way they turned out!! I am also super excited to reuse them for other holidays!!
