While it seems like most everyone is busy decorating for Easter/Spring I just can’t let my beloved St. Patrick’s Day pass me by. As a redhead with Irish roots, I’ve always loved St. Patrick’s Day. For years on March 17th, I’ve been dying my food green and pinching all those non-green wearers. As far as decor goes, I will admit, It’s not the chicest of holidays. Stores line their shelves with goofy cartoon leprechauns, plastic pots of gold, and four leaf clover garland. I like to take a more understated approach. This year, I made my own burlap bunting and gold dipped letters. It was super simple and doesn’t scream ST. PATRICK’S DAY at you. And yes, there is actually some green in there!
It’s hard to tell from the picture but instead of just using gold paint, I covered the letters with gold glitter. It gives the letters some texture and a little extra sparkle. I just painted a little Mod Podge at the bottom and poured the glitter over the glue.
