5 DIY St. Patrick’s Day Decorations
Feeling lucky yet? You don’t have to be Irish to join in on the holiday fun. Just grab something green and gear up for St. Patrick’s Day on March 17th with a few fun DIY crafts. Below, we’ve compiled a list of creative St. Patrick’s Day decorations that you and the kids can make to spruce up your home.
Shamrock Mason Jars
It wasn’t too long ago that the Mason jar craze took hold. If you’re a fan of the thrifty, farmhouse-reminiscent containers, check out these adorable and easy-to-make St. Patrick’s Day shamrock Mason jars. The first step is to paint the Mason jar gold. Use spray paint for easy application. Then, paint on shamrocks with green acrylic paint. That’s it! Also, you can try different colors and varying Mason jar sizes to create visual intrigue. Not to mention, they’re great for holding utensils, straws, flowers and so much more.
Add texture to your dining table with these sprightly moss placemats. You’ll need a roll of moss, as well as some round placemats. Simply cut the artificial moss into smaller squares that will cover the placemat. Then, use a hot glue gun to mold the placemats and moss pads together. Once the glue has set, take your scissors again to create a circle. Now that you have beautiful placemats as lush as the green grasses of the Emerald Isle, arrange your plates on top.
Pot of Gold
Transform ordinary terracotta planters into a St. Patty’s centerpiece with this DIY pot of gold project. Start by brushing black acrylic paint onto the outside of the pot. It may take two or three coats to cover. Next, apply decoupage glue to the inside and outside rim and sprinkle on gold glitter to coat. Then, taking a vinyl shamrock cutout, apply more decoupage glue to the Shamrock area and sprinkle with gold glitter. Finally, after giving your pot time to dry, fill it with gold-colored candies, like chocolate coins, for a festive look.
These paper leprechaun hats are perfect for concealing treats on March 17. Not to mention, they’re a craft even younger kids can participate in. All you need are sheets of green construction paper, school glue, a glue stick, gold glitter, scissors and a bowl for tracing. Once completed, you’ll have cute St. Patrick’s Day decorations for your table or mantle. As an added bonus, remove the top circle to hide St. Patty’s treats inside for the little ones to uncover later.
St. Patrick’s Day Wine Bottles
Make use of old wine bottles with this festive St. Patrick’s Day DIY project. Begin by removing the labels from your empty bottles and then spray-painting them green. Once you’ve painted on a black belt, all that’s left is painting the buttons and corks gold and fusing them using a hot glue gun. Then, after you’re done, you’ll have lovely bottles to use as centerpieces during your St. Patty’s Day feast.
