Finding or even making St Patrick Day crafts is one great way to express our Irish sides!
In this section we would like to share three ideas for craft-minded adults. For more kid-oriented ideas, visit our section on crafts for kids!
Centuries ago everything was handmade.
The emergence of factories in the 1800s resulted in mass-production of many necessities - but some items of special meaning continue to be hand-crafted even today.
Crafts such as paintings, embroidered panels, tapestries, jewelry, greeting cards, and hand-blown glass can be found in Irish homes and stores.
Hand thrown tableware, handbags, coats, and engagement rings are also among today's Irish crafts.
Computers provide wonderful ways to make greeting cards and invitations.
You can offer a personal touch if you go out and get the photos you print on the front of the card.
For example, take the kids to a flower boutique or garden to obtain pictures of clovers.
You can use computer software like greeting card programs found online to upload the picture and then insert a personal message inside.
This works for the invitations too. A more personal touch would be to create all the greeting cards by hand.
Name bracelets are another great form of St Patrick Day crafts.
If you intend on hosting a party where everyone might not know each other or you want to make a lasting gift, name bracelets can be the way to go.
It is also a fun activity for children if you throw a children’s St. Paddy’s day party. Beads are the best way to go for these bracelets.
