2. Create decorative shamrocks

Another popular and easy St. Patrick’s day crafts idea is to print off a shamrock design with a free template and create shamrock decorations for your home. All you’ll need besides the template is some paper, a printer with ink and toner, and a pair of scissors.

Print the decorations out and then cut out the shamrock neatly. You can also stick them onto lollipop sticks or straws to hold during the parade. Want to decorate the house with your shamrock creations? Why not use a hole puncher to punch a hole in your creations and thread a string through them to hang up!

3. Print off some festive St Patrick’s day stickers

Want to decorate your colouring book with some unique stickers or why not decorate your clothes for the parade? We explain how to print stickers with your home printer in this blog. Printing stickers at home is more cost-effective than store bought stickers and a lot more fun!

Not sure where to find some stickers that are St. Patrick’s day themed? Microsoft Word has some great St Patrick’s day sticker templates you can use to print off stickers along with other festive goodies. Their templates include classic shamrock stickers, pots of gold and leprechaun hats. Everything you need to get in the festive spirit!
All you’ll need to print these stickers is a printer and some blank sticker paper.

4. Customise a T-shirt or flag with textile markers

A fun and easy way to jazz up your St Patrick’s day attire is to decorate a plain white T-shirt or a flag with a drawing of your choice, either freehand or using a stencil. Let your creativity flow with fabric markers such as this green textile marker perfect for drawing a shamrock on a T-shirt!

5. Decorate your windows with paint markers

Paint markers are a great temporary way to jazz up your window with a festive shamrock drawing or to wish the neighbours a Happy St Patrick’s Day! This green paint marker will do just the trick.

Drawings are best kept to the inside of the window to avoid being washed away. Don’t forget that your design will appear in reverse on the other side. If you want to write a message on your window, make sure to write it backwards!

6. Print St. Patrick’s Day invitations

Are you having a festive St Patrick’s day party and want to invite all your friends? Did you know you can print off templates from Microsoft Word such as this St. Patrick's day invite? Alternatively, why not let the little ones get crafty with some green paper, Pritt Stick glue, and some custom stickers!

We hope you have fun getting crafty with our St. Patrick’s day art ideas and enjoy the festivities.
