Green-Inspired Crafts for a Festive St. Patrick’s Day

eHow Crafts Blog

celticknotGreen is the customary color of St. Patrick’s Day. According to superstition, you become invisible to leprechauns by wearing green, who pinch anyone they catch not wearing the color. It also doesn’t hurt to have sprinklings of green throughout the house as an added layer of protection against those green-loving tricksters. Here are our favorite green-themed DIYs to ensure you have a festive, pinch-free St. Patty’s Day…

Recycle old green T-shirts into Celtic knot headbands.

Show ’em the green! This chore chart for kids attaches cash to chores as an instant incentive. Works like a charm.

Add more green to your living space with these hanging plant holders. You won’t believe what they’re made of!

Master the art of painting green leaves with this lovely watercolor tutorial. This technique would work well for painting shamrocks, too.

You’ll receive compliments, not pinches, if you wear this lucky charm on St. Patrick’s Day.

And some green-themed Instagram inspiration, too:

This living art sculpture brings the outside in … literally.
