Whether you’re Irish or not, it’s hard not to get caught up in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day! This fun holiday gives us the perfect excuse to believe in magic for a bit and celebrate with friends and family. Bring this holiday into your home with these easy-to-make DIY St. Patrick’s Day decor ideas!
Scrappy St. Patrick’s Day Pillows
Pillows are a great way to quickly transform any room. By simply switching out the pillows or changing the pillow covers you can easily decorate for any holiday. These cute and colorful pillows are a wonderful way to use up scraps, too! Start out by cutting out and attaching the appliqués to the fabric with Stick Double Sided Fusible Interfacing. Then follow the rest of the step by step instructions in Rae Gun Rambling’s easy to follow tutorial to complete this cheery pillow project!
DIY St. Patrick’s Day Pillow Wreath
I just love this twist on wreath making! Pillow wreaths are a craft from yesteryear that never get old, and this fantastic St. Patrick’s Day pillow wreath is an excellent example of why this is such a fun and festive decorating idea. A pillow wreath is a great project for beginners, and it’s perfect for making as a group. Teach your friends, family, or kids how to sew the mini pillows and then work together to pack each tiny pillow with Poly-Fil Fiber Fill. This beautiful wreath will bring back lots of happy memories as you display it each year!
Dollar Store Decor to St. Patrick’s Day Pillow
This is a quick project that can be made using plain pillow covers, dollar store felt fabric decor, and Fairfield World’s pillow inserts. If you don’t have pillow covers, use white t-shirts or scrap fabric to make a simple envelope cover. Then you can sew the pre-made decorative item on, or attach it with a fusible web like Stick Double Sided Fusible Interfacing.
Mini Shamrock Banner
Bring the luck of the Irish to your home with this stunning mini shamrock banner! The tutorial at Holiday Crafts and Creations includes all the templates needed to create this beautiful design. They use felt to create their mini masterpiece, but you could create a quilted version instead by modifying the instructions slightly. To keep your fabric stable and smooth you’ll want to use a quality stabilizer like Smooth Fusible Fleece Interfacing. This versatile interfacing works for a variety of home decor projects, including pieced quilted items such as this one.
Leprechaun Sock Gnome Tutorial
How adorable is this sock gnome project by Ruffles and Rainboots? I think it’s the cutest! It’s amazing what you can make with socks and Poly-Pellets. I love her take on this classic project! The red fur beard is so clever and colorful! This St. Patrick’s Day decor project would look cute on a mantle or coffee table, and you could pair it with some of the other projects in this round up to create a table- or mantlescape.
Felt Shamrock Decor Tutorial
This sweet little stuffed shamrock is another great project for beginners. More advanced makers could embellish the shamrock with embroidery or stenciled designs made with fabric paint. You’ll just need a little Poly-Fil Fiber Fill to bring these little stuffed shamrocks to life! String several of the stuffie shamrocks together to make a cute garland to decorate with, or make a larger version to nestle in with your St. Patrick’s day pillows.
Leprechaun Treat Bags
Imagine all the giggles when little ones see these adorable leprechaun treat bags! I’d love to make a slew of them to hang up on a mini clothesline to create a unique garland on my fireplace mantle. The tutorial shows you how to create box legs to seal the bag and make it sturdy, but you could add some extra support to the project with a medium weight fusible interfacing like Structure.
Charmed Table Topper
This beautiful quilted table topper will instantly make any surface festive! This would look great on a coffee table, side table, or even on a dining table with a centerpiece set on top of it. This project uses different shades of green to create colorful appliqués. A lightweight batting, such as Poly-Fil Low Loft Batting, will keep this table topper light, soft, and easy to wash.
St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Placemats
This DIY St. Patrick’s Day project teaches beginners how to use a serger so you can quickly make an entire set for your dining table! The tutorial includes the template for the shamrock appliqué, along with step by step instructions. You can use lightweight batting with this project, but Shield is a great interfacing option for this project. It’s a moisture and allergen barrier that will protect your tabletops while being machine washable and durable.
Lucky Shamrock Coin Bags
These cute little coin bags are a quick project to make with a drop cloth or any green scrap fabric you might have in your stash. While the tutorial shows how to use them for treat bags, there are several decorative ways this easy DIY can be used. Fill the bags with Poly-Pellets to create cute decor, or even fun little door stoppers! Make larger versions and slide a pillow insert into it to create a cute and unique pillow! These little bags would be great paired with the leprechaun pants and gnome tutorials listed above!
