For the love of Green!

March 17th is rolling in. Why not share in the celebration of Saint Patrick, be it having a green beer, eating a large Irish feast, watching the parade, or simply wearing green? There are many ways to get into the spirit and here are some craft ideas to show your love of green.

Dig out those Christmas wreaths and with any luck, there will be some greens and golds already incorporated, so little will need to be changed. Any of the neutral colours can stay, such as white, blacks, browns. Then all that is left are the finishing touches of shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows, and pots of golds.  Check out the instructions for the two wreaths shown above at Time with Thea and Punkie Pies.

These little leprechaun Nordic gnomes will be a delight to have as decoration and would also make a great addition to the garden as we head into spring. Instructions on making your own mini-felt gnomes can be found at Spool and Spoon Blog. You can make the leprechaun variation of the Nordic felt gnomes by adapting the hat to be flat top instead of pointy and using green coloured scraps.

Happy St. Patrick's Crafting!
