With a little inspiration there are plenty of opportunities to decorate your home for St. Patrick's Day with the help of simple frames, wreaths or door art. Using ribbon, cord, raffia, or rough twine can help to make a variety of Irish decorations. Here are a few decorating ideas that are worth considering:
An instant way to add St. Patrick's Day charm to your home is to create home-made hanging shamrocks. They are easily made using flattened cardboard and cut to recreate the heart-shape leaves. After painting in the shamrock green, hang the leaves in the home using string or fishing line.
A great way to get in the festive mood is the Irish-inspired dinnerware. This can include the decorative ceramic plates or tableware with the green, white and orange colors of the national flag. But, make sure the plates are safe to use and made with food-safe paint.
A simple way to give the home a touch of Irish themed decoration is to buy or make a mantel decoration that contains a framed clover.
A varied arrangement of green flowers is great choice for getting the home ready for the festivities. There are plenty of lush and green plant options to create the attractive bouquet. A great selection of flowers with leaves, herbs and succulents can make the beautiful arrangement. Also, add in a few white blooms to give the best color balance.
Hang a Succulent Wreath
A lush, succulent wreath is a simple, yet effective way to introduce more green to your home for St. Patrick's Day. They are quite hard-wearing and look great when left to adorn the front door.
Celtic Stencil Art
A sophisticated piece of art that can be created for St. Patrick's Day is the beautiful Celtic stencils. They are easily created using watercolor paper, stencils and watercolors or acrylic paints. Plus, craft paper can also be used to create the matted look. This art is best displayed using a glass-clip frame.
Stencils can be used in other areas of the home. For instance, the plain tablecloth is easily transformed with the help of a stencil with a Celtic pattern. This can be applied to the border of the tablecloth. The preferred paint for this type of stencil design is fabric paint.
Just by being creative it is possible to create a wide range of decorative features for the home to give the more festive atmosphere.
