Do you like decorating for St. Patrick's day? I do, because I like decorating for any holiday. It makes my house feel festive and fun. I do not go over board because it is so close to Easter, but I still put decorations up.
This year I added one more decoration item. Remember my post about my Valentine's Day decorations? Well for one of the decorations I made a Valentines day canvas. It was so easy that I thought I would make one for St Patrick's day.
I followed the same steps, but instead of painting the stripes black I painted them gold. I LOVE gold these days so I knew I wanted gold on there. Then instead of a red heart with red washi tape I used a green shamrock with green washi tape. I switched up the words on the bottom too. Also, I let the words bleed a little on the bottom. I did not do that for the Valentines Day one. (I wanted a different look for this one.)
It was so simple and I love the combination of green and gold. Perfect for St Patrick's Day! I will add this to my other items and spice of the space a bit.
Another VERY QUICK decor item I do every St Patrick's Day is put split green peas in a vase and place a white candle on top of the peas (same vase and candle that I used in the post above with conversation hearts). I love it because it adds something else and costs so little and takes such little time. That is my kind of decorating when life is crazy.
This year I am going to do some fun things for my daughter. She loves anything out of the ordinary so it doesn't take much. Here are my plans for this year:
- Giving her Lucky Charms to eat on St. Patrick's Day (she loves them, but we hardly ever give them to her so it will be a treat)
- Set a leprechaun trap
- Leave green treasures and gold coins in her shoes
- Give her a green bubble bath (she LOVES bubble baths)
Do you have any fun St. Patrick's day decorations? Do you have any fun St. Patrick's day traditions?
