5 DIY crafts for St. Patrick’s Day
Whether you’re Irish or just Irish-at-heart, St. Patrick’s Day is a wonderfully fun holiday to celebrate. This March 17th, take some inspiration from the Emerald Isle and decorate your home in honor of St. Patrick. From shamrock ornaments to an adorable pot o’ gold centerpiece, these St. Paddy’s Day crafts make the perfect after-school activity to share with your kids or grandkids.
Shamrock Paper Strip Ornaments
Although historians say there’s actually no evidence that St. Patrick ever used a shamrock to teach the Irish people about the Holy Trinity, as legend states, it just wouldn’t be St. Paddy’s Day without shamrocks. Go the DIY route and make these fabulous shamrock paper strip ornaments to hang over your dining room table. Get the full instructions at Sugar Bee Crafts.
Painted Burlap Banner
Perfect for hanging on a mantel, this painted burlap banner is very Dublin-meets-country-chic. Complete this cute project in less than 30 minutes for just $7. Here’s how.
Lucky Four-leaf Clover Wreath
The four leaves on the four-leaf clover are said to symbolize faith, hope, love, and luck, so what better place to put a lucky clover than right on your front door? Read the how-to for this adorable and simple DIY at Blue Sky Confections.
Pot o’ Gold
Everybody knows there’s a pot of gold at the end of all rainbows, but finding it isn’t exactly easy. Luckily glitter, paint, and a terracotta pot (plus some delish gold-wrapped candy) are all you need to finally have your very own pot of gold. Make a few of these adorable pots in different sizes and use them as a fun centerpiece for your St. Paddy’s Day get-together.
I love this St. Patrick’s Day decor idea because it takes practically no time to make, and you can switch out the filling to decorate for another holiday. Group apothecary jars of varying shapes together and fill each one with different small objects, preferably the same color or with one color in common to create a theme.
