St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner but there’s still plenty of time to get your home ready for the holiday. Browse through these Irish-inspired accents that will bring add a touch of luck throughout your space.
Green photo frame display
Have some family pictures hanging in the hallway? Change them out of their current frames and into some green ones. Be sure to make the change at the beginning of March so it’s worth the time and effort. If changing them all is too much trouble, opt for switching out a few frames that are scattered throughout your home.
Plain white candles can be made perfect for the holiday when wrapped with green ribbon. Simply wrap the candle and use decorative pins to hold the ribbon in place. Always monitor the flame to avoid the ribbon catching fire.
Colorful glass collection
A simple collection of green glass bottles can make a great centerpiece or display for shelves and mantles. Using a bottle or two as a vase for some white flowers is a nice way to enhance the look.
Framed clover decoration
Not only will a framed clover look great on a mantle or wall, it’s easy to make. Simply trace the shape of a clover onto a 1-inch thick piece of plastic foam and then cut it out. For texture, cover the shape with crinkled tissue paper, using spray adhesive to keep it in place. Add some green spray paint and antique glaze for enhancement and secure it to a framed piece of burlap with some hot glue. Design credit: ferncreekcottage.com
Four-leaf clover door hanging
Using spray adhesive, attach a variety of green scrapbook papers to pre-cut, wooden shamrock shapes (found at most craft stores). Once dry, trim the edges with a utility knife or scissors. Apply Mod Podge with a foam brush and after it dries, attach the shamrock shapes to a ribbon with glue dots. Scrapbook letters can be attached to each one to create sayings such as, â€œKiss me I’m Irish,â€ or â€œLuck of the Irish.â€ Design credit: hoosierhomemade.com
