#2 Homemade DIY projects and crafts St. Patrick’s Day Decorations
Maybe you enjoy more the do-it-yourself way of doing things? Or just prefer to have St. Patrick’s Day Decorations which are uncommon and personalized to your own taste? Then use your imagination and create your own banners, wall hangings and more with some simple guidelines you can find online. Or just steal the idea from our Pinterest pick-ups or right from these pictures:
A really charming idea (and one of my favorite) is to fill a jar with some green jelly beans or chocolate coated pieces or rainbow colored candies (like Skittles). I simply love these “Rainbow Seeds” – great for the kids around!
Another idea is to use a large vase or clear jar and give everyone pieces of green and white paper. Have them write various St. Patrick’s Day jokes on each one, then fold the papers and place them in the jar. At each meal have someone take out and read one joke.
# 3 50 Shades of Green
If you want to buy pre-made items but do not want to see any more leprechauns, shamrocks or “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” labels, you can simply buy items in various shades of green to accomplish the same feel. If this is too boring for you, then include touches of orange and white (which along with the green are the colors of the Irish flag!) and you will have that Irish touch on your party.
#4 Decorate Outdoors
Just like for Christmas and Halloween, there are plenty of St. Patrick’s Day outdoor decorations available to boost the holiday spirit and let your neighbors know you are in the party mood. It’s really funny to decorate the outside of your home. It will make the people around happy to see a festive house in the area. You can start with some shamrock’s shaped wreaths. Then maybe continue with your mailbox -just pick up a mailbox cover which you can place over it and take it off in a few weeks when changing it for Easer, you know?). You can also decorate your front door knocker, the door mat, and hand up some green lights. You can even find little shamrock lights to hang up around your porch. As a final touch use a festive holiday flag – it will look nice hanging on the house!
#5 Use St. Patrick’s Day Accessories
If you wish, you can always pay tribute to leprechauns and shamrocks on this special day as part of the St. Patrick’s day party decorations! There are different style hats, aprons, socks, glasses, gloves, tiaras – almost everything that could be put on your body. Although all the pieces have quite a goofy look, one of the most preferable is the hat. Of course, all the fun pieces of wear are generally green and will often include a buckle or a shamrock.
Do you want to wear a big green beer mug as a hat? That is just one of your options. Or maybe prefer beard and pointy ears? Well, it depends on how far you want to go with having the leprechaun look. If you want to stick with something that is definitely a hat – then could try a hat that lights up.
