St Patrick's Day Decorations

I switched up my Valentine's Day Decor
for St. Patrick's Day Decor.  

And I only spent $2.

Come check it out!

Holiday decorating is totally my jam!
Not spending a lot is also my jam!

I was really excited to challenge myself to 
not spend a bunch of money
as I decorated for St. Patrick's Day.

I bought a piece of green glitter foam
on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $.25.
I hand cut shamrocks from it.

Then I used cardstock, stickers, ribbon
and other items in my craft supplies
to make Shamrock sticks.
I put eucalyptus in a vase I already had
and stuck the sticks in.

 Next, the mantel.

The base is a DIY chicken wire message board
that I also used for Valentine's Day.
Then I added a bunch of banners.

I saw a cute gold LUCKY banner at
Target and decided to make a knock off.

I was going to buy gold cardstock
but it was $2 for each 12 x 12.
Instead I bought 1 piece of gold poster paper
for $1.19.
I used 2 12x12 squares of it,
(and still have a bunch left over for another project)
to cut out shamrocks and "lucky" letters
with my silhouette.
I also cut green shamrocks from card stocks and 
strung the green and gold on cotton string.

I made an old-school rainbow paper chain
by cutting strips of paper, 
4 in x 1/2 in, then stapled them.

The other shamrock wooden and wire banner 
is one I've for so long that 
I don't even remember where I got it.

I seem to use my candlesticks made from old
spindles every chance I get.
I'll do a post about them soon.

Love to see the mantel with the table centerpiece.

I added a few small touches to 

To a large jar of eucalyptus
I added some rainbow ribbons
and wooden shamrocks
my kids painted a few years back.

the black name sign here.

Tell me, do you like holiday decorating?
What holds you back from doing so?
