Do you enjoy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

I do. And yes, I’m of Irish ancestry.

But you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate the day of the Patron Saint of Ireland. You probably should believe in leprechauns, but that isn’t necessary either.

The only requirement to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day is to enjoy having fun!

For starters, try making green shaving cream arts & crafts.

Following are more fun St. Patrick’s Day Crafts to consider…

St. Patrick’s Day Home Decor

There are dozens of ways to decorate your home for St. Patrick’s Day.

A few that I’ve tried:

  • Make shamrocks out of green construction paper, attach fishing line and hang them from chandeliers, window frames and from the ceiling.
  • Green leprechaun pots of gold are available at most dollar stores at this time of year. Fill the pot chocolate coins that are wrapped in gold foil. Now you have your very own pot of gold!
