Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.

I find that St. Patrick's Day crafts are popular even for those of us who aren't able to claim Irish ancestry.

In this article, you will see pictures of the crafts, the name of the site, and the address, which will take you directly to the crafts patterns or directions. I've heard it said that everyone is a little bit Irish on St. Pat's Day. So if you see me wearing green from now until St. Patrick's Day, that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

Get directions to make the cute shamrock napkin holders seen above by going to scrumdillydo.

1. St. Pat's Votive Candle Holder

Here is a project to make for St. Pat's day that is quick and easy. The kids will have fun making this candle holder also. The instructions for making the votive candle holder can be found at mess for less.

2. Irish Coffee Mugs

Get your mugs at the Dollar store so you can have a whole set of these Irish coffee mugs. Or you could give one to your friends if you wanted to share.

3. Shamrock Suncatcher

Have the little ones make this shamrock sun catcher for St. Patrick's Day and see how proud they'll be for everyone to see it. Follow the instructions at HANDS ON as we grow to see how easy this project is.

4. Shamrock Wreath

So simple and yet so pretty. This one is made with foam shamrocks, but the kids could also make it with construction paper. For the instructions, go to Fun Family Crafts.

5. Shamrock Garland

I love this beautiful shamrock garland. The ones shown are great, but I think I would want them a bit more colorful. I like the ticking look of the fabric tho.
