If you want to create DIY home decor for St. Patrick’s Day, consider the following ideas:
If you have young children, you can get them involved with the creation of your St. Paddy’s Day decor. Get a white piece of paper or a canvas, and have your children dip their palms and fingers in green paint. Stamp their hands 4 times on the paper or canvas in a circular shape to create a shamrock. Paint a small green stem at the bottom of the shamrock hands.
A simple DIY decor idea is to put split green peas in a votive or hurricane glass and place a white candle on top of the split peas.
Use green Christmas balls to decorate for St. Patricks Day. You can arrange them in a large clear vase, or even use them to make a wreath!
