Top 10 St. Patrick’s Day Decor

For the past few weeks, the ladies and myself (and probably many of you too), have been combing Pinterest and our favorite blogs for some St. Patrick’s Day inspiration. We hope that you’ve enjoyed the decor/crafts that we’ve posted, and wanted to include our top 10 favorite ideas that we have seen on the good ol’ world wide web. (Each image will take you directly to the tutorial)

So here they are, in no particular order:

St Patrick's Day Clover Wreath

What’s better than a St. Patty’s Day wreath that is made from fresh greens from your very own landscaping?

 This banner was the inspiration for Grace’s Easy St. Patrick’s Day Banner. We especially like how this one uses vintage maps of Ireland for the background. A great decoration for your house or even your classroom!

 Everyone loves a free printable, and this one is full of whimsy. What a cute gift for your little ones or friends to get into the St. Patty’s Day spirit.

This craft is super easy and super cheap– you can get everything from the dollar store. A great activity to do with the kiddies.

St Patrick's Day Vases

A nice tutorial for making colored vases. Of course green works well for St. Patrick’s Day, but you could apply this technique to any vase for any holiday. This is great St. Patty’s Day decor without going too over the top.

St Patrick's Day Stamp

You probably have everything you need for this craft in your house already–we love an upcycled, free craft. The kids could make such cute St. Patrick’s Day cards with this stamp.

Shamrock Garland

This garland is also something that can work in both your home or the classroom. As all it takes is strips of paper and a few staples, this is a craft that kids (who can safely operate a stapler) can help with too.

You know that we love us some burlap around here. What’s nice about this art is that you can really vary it to your taste. You can change the shape of the clover or use cardstock/scrapbook paper instead of foam board. Love the natural look of this one.

St Patrick's Day Chalkboard Art

This is understated St. Patrick’s Decor at its best. A chalkboard with any saying related to the holiday (Irish blessings, songs, etc.) is a classy, neutral way to incorporate some holiday cheer into your home.

St. Patrick's Day Clothespin Wreathvia

This wreath can either go on your door or anywhere in your house/classroom. Using just a few supplies (most of which you may have already), this wreath is definitely a keeper!

Have you made any St. Patrick’s Day crafts? We’d love to see your decor choices!

St. Patrick’s Day Easy Paper DIY Banner

Easy Paper Banner

What’s that? You like my banner? Oh, thanks. It only took me less than 10 minutes. It’s an Easy Paper DIY Banner. What’s that, you want to hit me? You won’t after this post. Because you, too, can create this ridiculously cute banner in less than ten minutes and act nonchalant when your pal compliments you on it.

I imagine the exchange to go like this:

-“Cute Banner”

-”Oh, this old thing? It took me ten minutes”

-<eyes roll>


So, here’s the latest quick and easy project for you all (See, I told you that most of my projects are quick and easy. Like my Burlap Bunting, and my Easy Burlap Bubble Wreath, and my ridiculously easy mantel).

St. Patrick's day Banner I’m still not sure whether you call it bunting, or garland, or  a banner. So, from here on out, I will be calling it a “bgr.” I hope that doesn’t stand for something unsavory, but I’m just gonna choose not to google it, and just hope for the best.

Anyway, this BGR (bunting/garland/banner) is a quick one.

Here’s what you’ll need for your Easy DIY Banner:

Assorted Paper and a heart hole punch:

I spent way too much time in the paper aisle at JoAnn’s.
I really thought the grass paper was cute, but I also picked up three plaids.

Some pages from a book (I had an old geography text book that I decided to use) or newspaper, or scrapbook paper, or whatever your little heart desires:

See that Geography class from freshman year is useful.





-A hole punch

Here’s what you’ll do for your Easy Paper DIY Banner:

Brace yourselves because this is ridiculously easy.

1. Punch some hearts out of your paper of choice (You’ll need three hearts per pennant)

IMG_41982. Fold your hearts in half.

3. Cut a “V” or a triangle out of your page/soon to be pennant.

Paper Garland4. Arrange the hearts on the page in a shamrock style fashion, add a stem, then glue.

Okay, Okay, I’ll stop with the pictures. But seriously, the level of ease of this project is not indicative of the level of cuteness of this BGR. Give it a try, and when your friends compliment you on it, let me know if your exchange with them goes as I predicted!
