Friday the 13th is drawing near!
If you’re pensive about crawling out from under the covers on this notoriously unlucky day, you’re definitely not alone. While most folks will be avoiding black cats, ladders, and lumbering men wearing hockey masks, we suggest a different approach to improving your fortune this Friday. Channel the luck of the Irish and make some St. Patrick’s Day crafts for you and your entire family! Here we have curated a short list of DIY St Patrick’s Day projects to keep you and your little ones busy and provide great decorations for the holiday next week.
For those with little ones looking for refrigerator-worthy crafts, check out this project from Cutesy Crafts. These adorable rainbows are a great way to help develop fine motor skills and use simple supplies found in most households.
For the more advanced crafters out there, This Mom’s Confessions has a great DIY craft project for making your very own sparkly shamrock wands. While we can’t guarantee it will lead you to a pot of gold, it will make your children feel magical this St. Patrick’s Day.
Along with the rainbow paper plates, Cutesy Crafts also has a walkthrough on how to make a cute rainbow headband topped with a four-leaf clover. This one requires some needle work, so make sure you are there to supervise closely if your children will be making these for themselves.
And for the adults searching for a simple desk decoration idea, look no further. This quick project from That’s What Che Said is the perfect way to get creative and make your very own, holiday-themed paper weight.
For those lacking the time to go out and buy supplies, Pinwheel Crafts also offers a complete kit to make your very own, green and gold refrigerator magnets. Our Fun Fridge Magnet kit comes with all the supplies to make your very own St. Patrick’s refrigerator decorations. If you already have your own art and crafts supplies on hand, the tiles are constructed of a sturdy ceramic that will take most artistic media and adhesives.
So, when your alarm goes off on Friday morning, try not to panic! We know there are a lot of superstitions surrounding the 13th. But, with a little bit of St. Patrick’s luck, and creativity, you can make your own good fortune this month.
