St Patrick's Day decorations ideas
March 17 happens to be St Patrick's Day. It was the day he died, since he lived so long ago, they aren't sure of his birthday. But how fun is it to celebrate such a great holiday.

Usually, when you think of St Patty's Day, you think of all things green – shamrocks (Which St Patrick used to teach about the Holy Trinity), lucky charms like horseshoes and even leprechauns.
St Patricks day decorations DIY
Simple St Patricks day decorations can be super easy. Think green beads (pull those Mardi Gras beads out!), green plants, even green glassware. You'll want to have a variety of heights for your display. There are some cute DIY wooden gnomes on Etsy that can be painted green for St Patricks Day
Don't forget the walls! I made this banner that I leave out longer than just March because I love it. It is the Irish Blessing and brings me many fond memories of my college days and the Irish Catholic priests who would close mass with this blessing.
If you use a lot of green in your home decor you may want to make some chalkboard art that isn't just focused JUST on St Patricks day. Many transfers can be created using green paste and would add some green without being specifically Irish. Like this cute welcome transfer in a box frames gives a rustic feel and would be perfect to add to your St Patricks Day decorations.
Tiered Tray Decor for St Patty's Day
This is fun if you are into Farmhouse decor and have a tiered tray. Depending on the number of tiers you have, either 2 or 3 tiers will depend on how many items you'll need to fill your tray. Again look for items that vary in height and remember you can also look to Chalk Couture as well. The adorable Vintage Truck Cut out can be painted green & used in your tray. A small spinning bistro sign with the Celtic Cross would be a great addition as well. Remember, this sign can be designed on, washed off, and re-decorated for your next season or holiday.
Add a cute little leprechaun, a horse shoe and maybe some greenery or green garland and your tray is ready to be admired! See, St Patricks Day decorations don't need to be difficult and most can be easily found & reused..
Where to buy St Patricks day decorations
Lots of craft stores have St Patricks Day decorations. The dollar stores can sometimes have cute decor items you can use as-is or “upscale” them.
Your chain craft stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby, have their green decorations out several months early, so be sure to look there.
I enjoy making my own decorations so they fit my style. And I'll be honest, I like to be different. I don't want to look like everyone else! So for DIY St Patricks decor, be sure to check out Chalk Couture. Lots of fun chalk paint stencils that are reusable which means you can create your piece and then clean your board off your board. You can then reuse your transfer next year (which also reduces a lot of clutter!)
You'll find cute wood cutouts from CraftDealz. This is my go-to site for all things wood. They have cute wooden 4 leaf clovers, wooden gnomes and farmhouse beads. Naturally they have a ton of wooden signs like door tags or shaped signs as well. I love that they are a family-owned business with fair prices and reasonable shipping! Be sure to let them know I sent you!
