17 St. Patricks Day Crafts

February is on its way out and although March seems to be such a looooong month, it gets broken nicely in half with a fun celebration of St. Patricks day.

So…..to get prepared for the festivities, now is the time to start thinking about those St. Patricks day crafts to help celebrate the day.

There are party decorations and invitations but you may also want to start decorating the house for the holiday.   If you are keen on green that is!

Even if you’re not big into that bright kelly green decor, there are other ways to decorate in a more subtle way that will still give you a change and make you feel the excitement of another holiday.  I know that I prefer subtle myself!

I found so many different St. Patricks Day crafts that I wasn’t sure how many I really wanted to feature.  The number seventeen may seem random and odd, but I figured that since St. Patricks Day is on March 17, it made sense to feature seventeen crafts.

So, here are my favorites that I think you will enjoy:

1.  Kiss Me I’m Irish Plaque by Paint Me Plaid:

I think if you are Irish and you like kisses, you pretty much have to make this plaque!  It’s such a cute way to make it clear that you are collecting kisses.

2.  Lucky Sign by Tatertots and Jello:

3.  Potted Clove Idea by Pretty Handy Girl.

Okay, so this really can’t be considered a craft, but it is an excellent idea for decorating on St. Patricks Day.  You have your cloves and of course the green……this is right up my alley!  I like the plain white planters too but I suppose you could embellish them with a sharpie or some paint if you like a little more to it.

4.  Washcloth Shamrocks by Craft Ideas:

I like the soft texture of the shamrocks and hearts from using washcloths to make them.  However, I would probably change it up just a little by making the hearts and beads white instead…….because I like more subtle.  This makes a great wall decoration to use between Valentines Day and St. Patricks Day.

5.  Irish Chalkboard Message by Dear Lillie:

When I talk about subtle, I am thinking about something more along these lines.  This chalkboard message is actually a print that is sold by Dear Lillie.  However, you can also make your own using a vintage frame and chalkboard paint.  Check out my tutorial on a vintage chalkboard.
