St. Patrick’s Day Decor

I have been collecting decorations throughout the years since high school. Between the clearance stuff I manage to grab each year and the holiday themed gifts my Mom always gives me, I had quite a collection. Imagine my disappointment when among my 25+ boxes of decorations, I realized that I had only a few dish towels for St. Patrick’s Day. Seriously?!?

On top of that, since Easter falls in the same month, there is almost NO selection of decorations. I had to get creative, fast. Thanks to Pinterest and Michaels, I was able to put together a nice arrangement for our dinning room.

I picked up the vase from a thrift store for $1.29. The dollies were a steal from Michael’s for only $1.50/each. The dishes and coins were in Michael’s St. Patrick’s section for 40% off.

I got the rainbow in a jar idea from Pinterest originally posted by Brooke Mclay on Babble.com. I wanted to continue using the awesome glass bottle I found at IKEA. I wasn’t originally planning to use marshmallows but after using two bags of Skittles, I still had space to fill up.

I already posted about my latest subway art print but wanted to show how nice it looks in a frame next to an inexpensive vase. You can get a free copy at My Crafting Attic’s Facebook Page!

Since there are two holidays in March, I had to share the prime decoration spaces. I decided St. Patrick’s Day would be in the dinning room and Easter in the living room on the mantel. I got the vases from out local thrift store, the green candle from Target, the dollies and flowers from Michale’s and the glass jars from IKEA.

St Patrick’s Day Fonts & Free Subway Art

I absolutely LOVE St. Patrick’s Day. Not only is it my sister’s birthday but we are Irish, I love looking for 4 leaf clovers, and seeing rainbows! It always usually means spring is right around the corner.

I had so much fun putting together my favorite fonts for Valentine’s Day, I figured I would start out the month with some of my favorite St. Patrick’s Day fonts. These aren’t specifically labeled as St. Patrick’s Day fonts but they work pretty well in my opinion!
