6 St. Patrick’s Day Decorations and Fashion Items Created with a Laser Cutter
We will be showing you how you can make St. Patrick’s day decorations and fashion items using xTool M1 and xTool D1 laser cutter. These are the only two machines we will be using for all ideas.
1) St. Patrick’s Day Wooden Decorations
Wooden St. Patrick’s day decorations are preferred, and you can make them creative using new designs and ideas. You can make almost anything, such as a board showing St. Patrick’s day craft and wall hangings. You just need to brainstorm ideas, and everything can be easily done using xTool M1.
We have also created an appealing wooden art piece for St. Patrick’s day decorations. We will also show you the steps to make it to decorate your house. For the following board, you just need a plywood acrylic board and paint. We will use xTool D1 for it, but xTool M1 can also be used as it also has a laser cutter.
xTool D1 is a high-accuracy diode DIY machine for laser engraving and cutting. It offers a high precision of 0.01mm, which is why the engraving is more than perfect. The laser of 0.08 x 0.08mm cuts materials of up to 10mm. It can work with over 300+ materials, making it easier for you to choose the desired material.
Steps to Make Wooden Decorations with a Xtool D1:
Step 1: Find images on the internet. If you can create your own designs using software, such as Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, you can also do that. You can also convert your hand-drawn sketches into images by taking a picture using your camera or mobile. Once you have images, insert your data in software (A4 size, length: 290mm, width: 217mm).
Step 2: Place the plywood on D1, frame your image and adjust the borders of the scan if needed.
Step 3: Place the material on the machine and hit start to begin your work (make sure laser beams pass through the honeycomb working panel).
Step 4: Repeat all operations until all materials have been engraved, including grass green acrylic sheet. (Kind reminder: stay away from the room if the fume of cutting acrylic is terrible).
Step 5: Paint materials as you like.
Step 6: Use glue to assemble our work.

2) St. Patrick’s Day T-shirts
Everyone likes St. Patrick’s Day sweatshirts and t-shirts. But some shirts are pretty common, and many people wear the same design. Thus, it is better to think of a design and do everything on your own. It will be your 100% unique St. Patrick’s day sweatshirt.
We will use xTool M1 to create St. Patrick’s day sweatshirts for our colleagues and family members. We need A4 PU heat transfer vinyl, electric iron, and a hook weeder.
xTool M1 is the world's first desktop hybrid laser & blade cutting machine. It is a compact machine, just like a desktop printer. It can be placed over a table and be used without any hassle. You can quickly move it to anywhere you like; it is entirely portable.
Another thing that sets xTool M1 apart from others is that it has two cutting technologies: Laster and Blade. It increases the range of materials you can choose for the machine. It can do laser cutting, laser engraving, and blade cutting.
The laser cutter can be used on hard materials, such as wood, metal, and glass. The blade cutter works on clothes, paper, vinyl, and other things that cannot be done with perfection using a laser. Thus, it is an all-in-one machine that can help you make whatever you want. You can also get a rotary attachment for M1 to rotate the object during engraving.
Steps to Make St. Patrick’s Day T-shirts:
Step 1: Import your own design image and its data into the software.
Step 2: Put PU heat transfer vinyl on the double-side sticky board in the laser machine and adjust the image to the correct place.
Step 3: Start the machine.
Step 4: Repeat the operation to finish cutting the rest of the PU heat transfer vinyl.
Step 5: Use a hook weeder to pick the unnecessary part.
Step 6: Use electric iron to transfer the cut PU heat transfer vinyl on the sweatshirt from base to surface.
3) St. Patrick’s Day Coaster
Coasters enhance the beauty of a teacup or beer glass. It would be a lovely idea to serve beer or any other drink along with a customized St. Patrick's Day rock coaster. Your visitors will be amazed to see such innovative coasters with their drinks. The best part is that these can be used even after St. Patrick's day.
Making coasters is much easier by using xTool M1. You need a piece of rock coaster according to the typical size of a coaster. If you don't have a small piece of coaster, xTool M1 can cut a plywood sheet into small pieces. After that, select an appealing design from the internet or create your own. Upload the design on the software, and you are ready to engrave the design on the wood.
Within a minute or two, the simple piece of wood will be turned into a fascinating and attractive wooden coaster that you can use on St. Patrick's day. You are now ready to surprise your visitors with this fantastic idea.
