Being GREEN can be EASY

Growing up, St. Patrick’s day was always my favorite non-major holiday. St. Patrick’s day meant a day with my dad, a trip to the parade, face paint, tons of GREEN, fried foods, and most importantly tons of fun.

That’s why I was astonished when it came to my realization, that I almost MISSED IT this year. My children are getting older and it’s time to start sharing some of my fond memories of this Irish Holiday with them. I’m new in town and not sure if there is a parade anywhere near by? Still, I did manage to find a few things online that can help us have a GREENTASTIC St. Patrick’s Day right here at home.                

Thank you,  Tara, for your fantastic collection of St. Paddy’s day crafts that got us started.

Look for this post to grow until the official St. Patrick’s Day!

Leprechaun Beards

Now here’s a mom I’d love to make friends with, look at these Leprechaun costumes she whipped up using finds from the Dollar Store

Another fabulous DIY mom, Morgan from One More Moore teaches us how to make these super cute Shamrock pins

St Paddy's Popcorn treat

Who could resist this super cute, super tasty easy green snack from a new to me site, Bright Ideas?

I thought it was almost impossible to top those amazing popcorn balls {above} but check out this super simple Over The Rainbow centerpiece from JesseKate Designs, I just may reconsider

Clover magnet

Just happened on to this Clover Magnet craft recommended for kids ages 6-8 

Leprechaun Trap

I have a feeling older kids would love constructing this amazing Leprechaun Trap from Artists Helping Children

Shamrock Mobil

Then there was the Crayon Shamrocks from Smile Monsters, that reminded us of the heart version we posted for Valentines

shamrocktree

If crayon shavings & irons sounds a bit daunting for your Green Holiday, perhaps you would prefer this simpler Shamrock Tree from DLTK’s Crafts for Kids

If you can’t find one of your own Zakka Life has a great tutorial on how to make your own Lucky four leaf clover
 
Shamrock Tee

Not sure what I like more, how easy this Shamrock Tee is to make or how happy this little girl is to be wearing it. Too cute

I have a feeling that little girl {above} would also love a pair of these Rainbow Streamers, consider them St. Patrick’s Day pom-poms if you will

Leprechaun Top Hats

These adorable Leprechaun Top Hats are made using recycled items from around the house and will soon be a stunning mobile, I can’t wait to see the final product on Viva Full House

Shamrock Necklace

Love this creative Shamrock necklace handcrafted by Sarah from The Small Object 

Green Bird

If you wanted to spruce up your website or twitter page, try my favorite online artist Tricia Rennea. I’m loving this cute birdie she drummed up for my favorite day.

Look for us to add some great new crafts over the next few days and no mater how you’re planning to celebrate, we hope you have one AMAZING St. Patrick’s Day
