St. Patrick’s Mantel & Printable

Well, I don’t really celebrate St. Patrick’s Day although it’s kind of a big deal in the town I live in.  But I decided to put something up now that Valentines is over and it’s a little too early for full blown Spring and Easter decorating.  I only used things I already had that were easy to throw together.  I did not spend very much time on this at all.  

I found some green and white glass and grouped them together.


I added a gold container at the other end for balance.


I wrapped some green polka dot ribbon around a white candle and secured it with a safety pin so I can easily take it back off.


I typed up the word lucky in green letters and added a shamrock and printed it out and put it in a gold frame. 

You can download the image here if you’d like to use it. 

I found a little plush shamrock thing of the kids and put it up on a white,chippy candleholder.


I spray painted a small terra cotta pot black and put some arcade coins in it.  Maybe that will pass for a pot of gold.  


I did spend about 20 minutes putting together a simple banner.  I cut out some shamrock images and covered them with some green glitter glue and glued them onto white felt triangles.  I then glued the triangles onto some green ribbon and hung it. 



I think it gives a nice finishing touch to the display.   Now, I don’t have to worry about the mantel anymore (for a few more weeks, at least)!
