Saint Patrick's Day Home Decor Ideas

Hello, Friends!  Saint Patrick's Day is almost upon us!  Time to get your Irish on and dress your home up for the wearin' of the green!  Today I have a few ideas for Saint Patrick's Day home decor to share with you.

Lucky Shamrock Banner



Banners are one of the easiest ways to dress your home up for a holiday.  They are fun and festive and make every day feel like a party. This one measures about 3 feet long from tip to tip.  I shot a one minute video so you can really see the details up close.ort 




I die cut 3.5" x 4.5" fish tail banners from cardstock, then matted them on a lighter shade of cardstock to create dimension.  Then I hand cut fishtail banners from patterned paper to sit on top.  Next, I stitched images from the cut apart page onto the top of each large pennant.  


My trusty Tim Holtz Mini Rosette Die was used to make a bunch of rosettes from patterned paper.  Paper flowers, vintage buttons, burlap string and pretty bows dress the banner up nicely.

The banners are attached to a 1.5" wide emerald green ribbon with mini clothespins.


I've strung smaller 2.5" x 3 banners between each larger pennant.  These stickers from the Emerald collection make it so easy to decorate!

Irish Lass and Irish Lad Shaped Chipboard Wall Hangings


I've had these shaped chipboard bases in my stash forever.  I thought they'd be extra cute dressed up with Shamrock papers.  Each little chipboard shape measures about 6" x 6".  


The vintage metal hanger detaches so the card can open.  These are super cute displayed on a cabinet knob! I popped the chipboard pockets up with mini foam tabs.  Then I filled them with matted stickers and tags.  


The inside is decorated with more cut aparts and stickers.


This mini file folder is made with a sticker.  The inside is a great place to leave a little leprechaun treat!


Of course, I had to make one for the Irish lads out there!  These bib overalls crack me up!


Even though these chipboard shapes are retired, you could probably find something very similar in an SVG cut file to make your own version.  I did do a quick Google search and found a few floating around on EBay and Etsy.  

I hope I've shared some ideas that will help you get your home ready for the wearin' of the green!  Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,
Kathy
