It’s March, so that means green hearts, treasure at the end of the rainbow, clovers, and pots of gold. So why not have all of the above? Make your own DIY decor this St. Patrick’s day and really get into the festive spirit. It’s that time of year to celebrate the luck of the Irish - a group of people that, historically, have not been that lucky.
DIY Noodle Wreath
Here’s a fun one that the whole family can do. DIY noodle wreaths for your front door. All you need are basic construction materials and a little extra time. For the purposes of this project, we used a styrofoam donut as the base. Then add your own variations of ribbon, twine, and of course, little shamrocks. This becomes a green token of Irish celebrations.
St. Patrick’s Day Banner
Here’s another great arts and crafts project. This one is great to do alone or work together with kids. All that is required are your choice of:
- Green construction paper
- Other construction paper
- Old books
- A pint
Create your own designs and hang them with pride. It looks great over a fireplace mantle, as well. Alternatively hang it around your other home decor.
Turn Other Holiday Decor Green
Going green is always a cost saving and carbon footprint reducing option. In this case, it’s a little more literal. So take that old New Year’s top hat or Easter Eggs and paint them a healthy bright green. You can find stuff in the attic, the basement, and all around the house.

So this St. Patrick’s day brush off the old arts and crafts skills for some new DIY decor that will really brighten up the home. It’s a great way to spend time with the family and get the creative juices flowing. After all, everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s day.
