St. Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays. I had fun decorating and sharing our St. Patrick’s Day Mantle.
Sometimes I have a struggle with blogging “in real time”, that is, like designers and authors, you have to write and post about upcoming events or holidays quite a bit ahead. I wanted to share a tutorial on how to decorate your Mantle for Easter, so I took down the St. Patrick’s Day Mantle a little early. I still wanted to have some decorations up though, so I moved all the “green” goodies to the Dining Room. And, added a few decorations…
I made a St. Patrick’s Day Garland, using the same concept that I made my Valentine’s Garland. I used construction paper and cookie cutters. I was really surprised, after asking my son, Casey, to go through the cookie cutters for me and get out all the shamrocks, that I have 7 different size shamrocks. Remember, these cute cupcake toppers? I printed out some more and added them to the garland too.
I hung it under the window in our Dining Room, I apoligize for the light exposure in these pictures. With the light coming in the window, I just couldn’t get a good picture. We also still have up our plastic on the windows, hoping Spring is near
I started with wire garland that has shamrocks on it, I added some of the shamrocks that I cut out of construction paper, like the garland, some of the St. Patrick’s Day printables and a few gold coins that I glued a ribbon to. (visit Diane to see her money tree)
I had all of the supplies on hand, making this little project, quite “lucky”
Do you have a special day planned for St. Patrick’s Day?
