St. Patrick’s Day can be fun for kids too!

Hey there!  Check out this fun free scavenger hunt I found on Pinterest.  Thanks to Teepee Girl my kids will have a very festive way to start out the day.  This year St. Patrick’s day falls on a Sunday so I feel extra pressure to make this holiday fun as the kids won’t be in school to pinch and play along with their friends.  I hope this helps if you are struggling with ideas, it’s pretty easy all you need is a printer.  Enjoy!

Any fun traditions and ideas you all do to celebrate this Irish holiday? Please comment as I would love to see some ideas to make my day feel even luckier!

Not so tacky St. Patrick’s Day decorations.

So St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner… Beef and cabbage, bratwurst and a little DIY are how I am going to celebrate.  I have some cute “not so tacky” DIY projects for your choosing.  Choose one, choose all they are easy to accomplish and enjoyable to do.  Not to mention super budget friendly.  So pour your Irish beverage and let’s get started.

First off grab your favorite shamrock cut out and glam it up a bit with glitter and sparkles.  I then like to add a ribbon in a different shade of green to tie it all together for my front door display.  I also used the same green ribbon tied to my large lantern for a unified look.  Next, to my large lantern, I placed a green candle inside my small lantern all the while sitting in front of my moss pot.  My front porch is a lucky fifty shades of green!!

Another fun craft; shamrock pillows.  Now, you don’t have to be a sewing genius to do this (which is good cause I am not).  I purchased some blank white pillows along with two shades of different green in a felt fabric. You can also use some old pillows you have lying around the house if they have a solid color or corresponding color.  I found a free shamrock printable online, printed, pinned to my felt and then cut the shape of the shamrock out.  I used cross-stitch thread and a large sewing needle and stitched the shamrock on.  It was just the pop of color my hearth needed!

Fill a mason jar with some pretty greenery and flowers. Always a good idea and a great way to keep the house fresh with flowers!  Add a St. Patrick’s Day flag in the center, and it is Irish all the way around.  I placed the mason jar on a shamrock table runner with green pear candles alongside it.

Another cute and unique idea is to spray paint small-medium sized styrofoam balls with yet again different shades of green (I like the contrast of different shades of green can offer).  I placed the green styrofoam balls in a vase and tied a green ribbon around the top of the vase.  I placed the vase alongside a rustic floral piece.  I mainly used greenery with a hint of white flowers and sticks.  I placed the arrangement in my galvanized container and tied a vibrant green ribbon around that as well.  Paired with our galvanized “M” on top of our mantle I think it is safe to say no Leprauchans will be messing with us this holiday.

May the luck of the Irish inspire you to play along!  Share some fun DIY decor ideas with me!  Thanks for stopping by!  Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
