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.

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)!
