1. Wreath on the Door
Wreaths often have different colors of ribbons, flowers, and greenery. Because of this, they make for great St. Patrick’s Day decorations. If you want to make your own, check out this website with over 50 different St. Patricks Day themed wreaths!
2. Table Centerpiece
Centerpieces can do a lot to make a room feel furnished and complete. This leprechaun hat centerpiece can provide a nice pop of color to any space in your home! However, if hats made from green jelly beans aren’t really your thing, that’s totally ok. Here are other centerpiece ideas from diyjoy.
3. Wall Art
When it comes to home decor, I would suggest investing in a picture frame that you really like. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, just functional. The reason for this is that hanging themed wall art is probably the cheapest form of decoration you can have.
Whenever you want to redecorate or switch things around for the holidays, you can just print an image you like and hang it in the frame. Multipurpose decor is always a win in my book!
4. Decorative Pillows
Pillows are one of those decor items that can get really expensive really quickly. While you may be able to find pillows for cheap from a craft store or Etsy, I have another option for you. Invest in a few standard pillows that you like for your home, and then just buy pillow covers for the holidays.
You can customize the pillow cases or buy ones pre-made. Either way it will save you in storage space and is typically a cheaper way to decorate.
5. Themed Display
If you have a bunch of little St. Patrick’s day trinkets, you can organize them into a fun display. There’s no required structure or formula, so you can make it all your own. The full article has examples if you want inspiration though!
6. Mason Jars
Mason jars are one of the most common DIY craft materials. They are cheap, usually pretty easy to access, and very versatile. Check out this website to see a collection of St. Patty’s day mason jar decor ideas.
7. Leprechaun Trap
For those with kids, this is an especially fun decor idea. Little ones are fascinated by the idea of leprechauns and will totally love helping you build a leprechaun trap like the one featured below!
8. Edible Charcuterie Display
Call me crazy, but the best kinds of decor are the ones you can eat! Not only can a charcuterie board be a visually appealing piece of decor, but it is one that you won’t have to put back in the storage closet. And who knows. Maybe you’ll even get your kids to eat some broccoli or celery!
9. Rainbow Backdrop
You’d be surprised how many times you could put a rainbow backdrop like this to good use. With just a bit of colored tissue paper and a few minutes you could throw together this decoration that is great for kids birthday parties, baby showers, and even St. Patrick’s Day!
10. Table Setting
I feel like the most common ways people celebrate this holiday are by dressing in green and eating green foods. You could throw a St. Patrick’s Day Dinner and take it up a notch with a green themed table setting. Check out your local Dollar Store to get green plates and utensils for cheap!
11. Mini Gnomes
I love how each of these gnomes has a little personality based on their hats. The ones featured below you’d have to order, but you can also make sock gnomes yourself. Here’s a tutorial to help you get started!
12. St. Patrick’s Day Banner
Banners are another piece of decoration that you can make on a budget! They typically just use string and paper, making them really cost-friendly. This blog even has the printable for free, so use that decorate your space for St. Patrick’s Day!
13. Pot of Gold
Maybe I’m a leprechaun, because I love things that glimmer and shine. Add a little sparkle to the room by including a homemade pot of gold. You can fill it with rolos, gold chocolate coins, or Hershey’s nuggets. Just know that if you put out candy, people will definitely try to steal your gold!
14. Window Stickies
Generally you can buy these from a craft store, but this article shows how you can make you very own window clings. If you have kids, this can be a fun craft to celebrate the holiday!
15. DIY Shamrocks
Another way I’ve seen people celebrate the holiday is by hanging large shamrocks to their wall. Some are made of tissue paper. Others are made of construction paper. Whichever style of shamrock best fits the look you’re going for, there’s a tutorial for how to make it!
