St. Paddy’s Day Chalkboard Printables

Yay! it’s March…Spring is supposed to be right around the corner right? We are going to have a weekend of rain here in Newfoundland, hopefully it will melt most of the tremendous amount of snow that we have. But that doesn’t mean that Spring is around the corner for us – we can have snow right into May, crazy!

Anyhow, here’s a free St. Paddy’s Day chalkboard printable – there are 4 background colors to choose from.

Yarn Wrapped Shamrock Wreath

Are you lacking in St. Patrick’s Day decor?

I don’t have a lot of St. Paddy’s decor. I wanted to make something that say’s “St. Patrick’s Day” but still fit into my everyday decor.

This yarn wrapped shamrock wreath was the perfect fit!

I grabbed a foam pipe insulator.

You can pick these up at your hardware store.

I bent it into a circle and taped it together.

I secured a piece of yarn to the foam insulator with tape and began to wrap

and wrap and wrap and wrap.

Yes, there’s a lot of wrapping, but not to worry it really doesn’t take that long.

I snipped my yarn and secured with a dab of hot glue.

Then I made these shamrocks with green, gray and white felt.

Click here for a tutorial on how to make them, why reinvent the wheel, right?

I picked these stylish green buttons out of my stash and attached them to the center of the shamrocks with a little dab of hot glue.

The result…a simple St. paddy’s Day wreath for almost next to nothing.

You can’t be that, cheap and easy.

I love projects that are budget friendly!

Mini St. Pat`s Tree

I cut a smaller branch for my 
St. Patrick’s Day Tree 
and placed it in a vase.

It’s the perfect fit on the corner of my breakfast bar next to another awesome subway art I found over at

These are little foam shamrocks 
that I layered on top of one another 
and hole punched to add the twine for hanging.
