It’s a beautiful and chilly Sunday morning here in the north country, and I’m a day late on putting this our for y’all! Life’s been very hectic this week, and I just simply lost track of time. I like to think it happens to the best of us.
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, a little less than two weeks! There’s no better time than now to share with you some of my easy and DIY decor I put up in our house to bring in that St. Patrick’s day spirit.
1. Front Door Wreath
This was so easy to make, and I’m in love with the way it turned out. You just simply:
- Take a foam circular wreath form and wrap it in yarn ( I used grey)
- Cut out clovers out of felt and glue onto yarn
- Wrap one direction in embroidery floss, and then wrap again in the opposite direction
- Wrap ribbon of choice over the top and tie a pretty bow
2. Mini Shamrock Garland
Siting atop my lovely chalkboard art is this mini clover garland. This I bought, but it would also be very easy to make.
If you’d rather just buy one instead, this kit provides all the necessary supplies and is a breeze to put together.
3. Lucky Bunting Banner
This cute “lucky” bunting banner is the first thing you see when you come into my house.
- Cut out triangles out of muslin
- Fold the top a little (about 1/2″), enough to fit twine through opening
- Pin and sew
- Arrange pre-cut felt letters, either sew or glue using fabric glue
- Punch hole into the top of two clovers cut out of felt.
- String twine through one clover and tie off, then through openings of the sewn triangles, and through the last clover and tie off one last time

4. Shamrock Banner
Hanging over out entertainment center is this simple burlap and felt clover banner.

5. Kid’s Craft Pot O’ Gold
For Christmas my family loves to stock our girl up with craft supplies so we always have lots on hand. We put some of it to use with this Pot O’ Gold craft.
I had a lot of fun making with my daughter. I distinctly remember that it was 2 years ago when we made it, and we were house bound as we were in the middle of a “no training pants potty training weekend.” I’m very happy to report that both were a success.
- Using construction paper, we cut out the pot, the gold coins, and a link for each color of the rainbow.
- She helped me glue the links together, attaching them all to the pot handle.
- Glue the coins in the top o’ the pot.
- Smear glue onto the coins and sprinkle gold glitter to make em shine.
- I wrote lucky in glue and sprinkled glitter onto that as well.
It was a messy craft, but oh so fun and memorable.
6. Kid’s Burlap Canvas Shamrock Art
These were harder to get right then I thought. My mistake for forgetting that a 3-year-old would be involved in helping, thus making it quite impossible to “perfect”. It was fun nonetheless, and very messy. Which equals a perfect project no matter how it turns out.
- Take two blank burlap canvases
- With green paint, use hands to make 4 leafs of a clover, then paint the stem using fingers or brush (fingers are more fun!)
- Again with green paint, use both feet to create 3 leafs of a clover, using one foot to create the stem.
- Let dry, wash up and hang on wall.
7. Clover Garland
This clover garland was super quick, and I got all of the supplies from the dollar store which made it very inexpensive.
- Using foam glitter clover cut outs, punch hole through center top of all of them.
- Using twine, tie each clover to a St. Patrick’s Day tinsel garland
- Hang up and enjoy!
8. Leprechaun’s Pot Napkin Holder
For Halloween a couple of years back, I had bought this plastic cauldron to store Halloween candy. We got “boo’ed” by one of our neighbors and received a bigger candy bowl.
I decided to up-cycle this cauldron and use it to store our linen napkins on our table. I just taped a leftover glitter clover to the front and now we have a little shamrock cheer on our table as well.
