Top 5 Decorations for
A "Lucky" St. Patrick's Day Front Door
Are you ready to shamrock the front door? We’ve put together 5 favorite St. Patrick’s Day decorating tips and ideas. From easy DIYs to clever money-saving hacks, you won’t need luck to make the neighbors green with envy this St. Patrick’s Day.
The weekend’s almost here. I’m Robin with Front Door Friday. Winter’s almost over. Spring’s not here yet. What’s a door to do? With a little luck of the Irish, you’ll make your neighbors green with envy. And remember, everyone’s a little Irish on St. Paddy’s Day.
Shamrocks, leprechauns, and that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Aren’t we lucky we have St. Patrick’s Day to break up the winter doldrums? Bright Kelly greens are just the thing we need this time of year, not to mention a little Irish cream in our coffee.
Use grapevine to create a swirling garland effect. Weave Deco Mesh throughout the vine. Bunch it, shape it, and use it to fill in the gaps. I have two different shades of green mesh for variation. Hang shamrock ornaments throughout the garland. You can always remove them after St. Patrick’s and keep the garland up through Easter. We’re hanging this on the top and cascading it down the side of the door for an offset and unique twist.
This is a quick and easy DIY. Gather or buy a bunch of different sized rocks. Spray them on both sides with metallic gold paint. Fill a black pot with sand or gravel for stability. Place the gold painted rocks on top. And there you have it, a pot of gold.
It’s good to update basic decorations for the holidays. These topiary pots are a great investment. Wrap ivy garland around the metal frame. This is a quick and easy update. It doesn’t have to be time-consuming to be effective.
Pick a ribbon to use throughout your decorating. This will help tie pieces together and give your front door a consistent polished look. Add a bow to a store-bought wreath for a personal touch. Plain terracotta pots are transformed with a whitewash finish.
Use craft acrylic paint for a first coat. Then sand down for a distressed finish. Don’t forget an Irish blessing.
That’s it for this week’s Front Door Friday. I encourage you to step out and try some front door decorating this weekend. To learn more, check out the Country Door blog. And I’ll see you next Friday. Happy decorating and God bless.
