I loved coming home every day in February to my heart wreath so I wanted something festive for March to combat the rainy days we've been having. I spent a week trying to improvise a crochet rainbow and then an evening trying to knit one. Eventually, I threw away several grotesque yarn monsters and decided on something simple. I had come across the phrase "céad míle fáilte," which literally translates as "one hundred thousand welcomes". What better for a front door.
I started with a simple wooden plaque that I picked up at JoAnn's using a 50% off coupon. (Side note, I also bought $125 worth of patterns for $14 because I keep a list of them as I see ones I like and then only buy on sale!) I gave the whole front a simple white wash with diluted white fabric paint because I was out of acrylic. The white wash lets the grain come through and gives less of a contrast with the lettering.
See easy, quick, and cheap!
