Felt Shamrock Pillow ~ Update a pillow for every holiday with easy-to-make felt cutouts. A simple shamrock and flower appliqué add a splash of green to your home’s decor for St. Patrick’s Day.
Green Glass Display ~Gather a collection of green glass for an easy centerpiece. We’ve adorned our bottles with twists of copper wire, but you might also use the bottles as vases for stems of white flowers with tall grasses.
Burlap Wreath ~ If you can tie a knot, you can make this wreath. A glittering shamrock adds a little glam to this simple decoration, while neutral burlap fabric is versatile enough to display the wreath throughout the year.
Green Vintage Books ~ When decorating for St. Patrick’s Day, you don’t need to restrict yourself to shamrocks and leprechauns. Opt instead for something creative and fun that incorporates the color green, such as a collection of antique books. If you can’t find books with green binding, wrap the book covers in green construction paper.
Green-Ribbon Wrapped Candle ~ Basic candles wrapped with green ribbon are simply perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. Secure the ribbon with decorative pins. Be sure to monitor the flame so it doesn’t get too close to the ribbon, and never leave a burning candle unattended.
Bells of Ireland Display ~ Long stems of bells of Ireland in a green or white vase create a beautiful, classic St. Patrick’s Day touch. Offset the vase with antique green books and vintage croquet balls, as Ireland is one of the founding countries of croquet.
Real Shamrock Planter ~ Display little pots o’ luck for St. Pat’s Day by planting oxalis plants (commonly called shamrocks) in jars, cups, or bowls.
Green Apple Display ~ An ornate bowl, jar, or vase filled with green apples — edible or not — is a quick and easy St. Patrick’s Day decoration. Use as a centerpiece or place on a bookshelf or mantel for Irish-inspired charm.
