St Patrick’s Day is a great time for some Irish themed crafting. It's a holiday full of colorful rainbows, pots of gold lucky leprechauns and fresh green shamrocks. Transform rocks by adorning them with rainbows and shamrocks or turn hand prints into adorable leprechauns. An old shoe box is easily turned into a leprechaun trap with some paint and craft sticks. Breathe new life into old wine bottles by painting them for the occasion and turning them into centerpieces. Turn foot prints into shamrocks by painting feet green and printing onto paper to form a shamrock shape. Take inspiration from these St Patrick’s Day Crafts that are perfect for the whole family to enjoy.
St Patricks Day Wreaths are an excellent addition to your decor and are a great craft for kids to make also. Make a St. Pat's wreath with foam shamrocks which can be bought in 12 packs from Dollar Tree and glue them around a foam ring.
