6 Fun Crafts for St. Patrick's Day

3 years ago

I've always had a soft spot for St. Patrick's Day. It's probably because I have auburn hair and it's the one time a year people are really into gingers. Sadly, as far as I know, I don't have a speck of a Irish in me. I still celebrate it and while in year's past it may have involved a bit more of a parades and party feel, I'm more of homebody these days. You know what's perfect for homebodies? St. Patrick's Day crafts.

Paper Shamrock Wreath

I really like the idea of seasonal wreaths but I rarely make them. We have one that goes up in the spring (it's up now -- I'm willing spring into being), one for the autumn and then, of course, Christmas. What I love about Jennifer's paper shamrock wreath is that it's really quite easy to make. And it uses paper scraps!

Cristina's St. Patrick's day bottle centrepieces are super easy to make. I think the rainbow one is my favorite. Another option using green bottles is Bliss Bloom Blog's St. Patrick's Day conversation bottles.

St. Patricks' Day Gratitude Tree

I like Nicholette's observation that while we focus on thankfulness in the fall, we don't always think about gratitude as much the rest of the year. Enter the St. Patrick's Day lucky tree gratitude craft. It's not about creating new luck, but about seeing what they can be grateful for in their lives -- the ways they already are lucky. I love it.

St. Patrick's Day Dish Towels

No holiday is complete without a festive dish towel, is it? Kathleen and Natalia can show you how to make St. Patrick's Day embroidered dish towels

Leprechaun Loot Bags

These leprechaun loot bags would make fun treat bags for a St. Patrick's Day party. The instructions would be easy to adapt for other holidays and occasions.

Felt Shamrock Plant

I like the idea of decorating with real shamrock plants this time of year but I have total black thumb when it comes to indoor plants. Rather than kill a plant needlessly, I could make Shaleah's felt shamrock plant. Isn't it pretty?
