Thursday’s Theme: Shamrock Craft Projects

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

We’ve gathered up some craft projects in order to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day all the way up until March 17th, with every level of craftiness in mind. Let us know if you give any a try, and happy creating!

Shamrock Garland | Richelle's Creative Corner

The felt shamrock garland to the left is an easy way to add a charming amount of shamrock whimsy to a mantel, bookshelf or window. Green rope, sparkly thread or fishing line are great ways to enhance or amplify the look of each shamrock.

And if you have a stockpile of felt, you can also make the felt shamrocks below with some hot glue, a sewing needle and some thread.

Using multiple shades of green will add dimension to each craft project, thus making your St. Patrick’s Day display more interesting and fun to create and admire.

Felt Shamrocks | Positively Splendid by Amy Bell

Sparkly green pipe cleaners (or plain green pipe cleaners) are the perfect size for colorful beads.

Beaded Shamrocks | Fun-A-Day

This craft is just as fun for kids as it is for parents and loved ones.
Keep it in your crafting arsenal to recreate the look every year.

Four Leaf Clover Craft | Simple Everyday Mom

This craft has the potential to be the messiest out of all of these, but aren’t the messy crafts the most fun? Mix up the colors or stick with classic green; these shamrocks are both personal and whimsical.

Thursday’s Theme: Spring DIY Projects from Pinterest

Thursday, April 26th, 2018

Mother nature has finally brought us some beautiful spring weather, and although it’s rainy today, the temperature outside isn’t too chilly so we won’t complain. Because we can’t quite get to our gardens and outdoor living spaces without getting soaked, today we’ve rounded up some springy DIY projects from Pinterest that can be done inside. When the skies clear up, some of these can even be taken outside as decoratives or play things. Click on the images below to be taken to the DIY instructions.

These umbrellas may not keep you dry on days like today, but they will add plenty of charms to a window, the space above a sink or wherever you decide to hang them. *One Little Project
