How to Make Your Home Festive for the Holiday Maria Provenzano Davis March 16, 2017 Spread the loveDIYS for St. Patrick’s Day Guest Blogger: www.mariaprovenzano.com Time for some St.Patrick’s Day decorating!! I know that St. Patrick’s Day is usually all about the green decor, but I thought I would change it up this year to make it brighter and more fun. I made a colorful rainbow with tissue paper topped with tissue paper clouds, turned rocks into my own pot of gold, made a leprechaun hat from a flower pot, and created flower beer mugs. I put these all in one post (except the mugs), because they are actually really easy! Tissue Paper Rainbow and Clouds 1 large sheet of tissue paper that is each color in the rainbow Tape 4-5 large tissue paper pom poms Scissors Directions: *Cut the tissue paper in half lengthwise *Fold that in half, then in half again *Then fold it in half the other way so that the open ends are all facing the same way *Cut the ends toward the folded edge leaving about an inch or so uncut *Unfold the tissue paper *Repeat with the other half and tape them together to achieve the desired length Pot of Gold A flower pot (or any pot you would like) Rocks Gold spray paint Directions: *If you don’t have a black pot you can paint it black *Clean the rocks so that they don’t have dirt on them *Spray the rocks with the gold spray paint; spray at least 8 inches away for even paint distribution; it’s best to do it outdoors *When the rocks are dry place them into the pot *You can fill the pot half way through with a towel so that you don’t have to spray a whole bunch of rocks (These are surrounded by Homemade Peppermint Patties) Click here for my flower beer tutorial Flower Pot Leprechaun Hat Paint a flower pot green! You can either glue a black ribbon onto it or paint a line with black paint. For the buckle I cut a square out of white paper, painted it gold, and covered it in gold glitter. I filled the small hole at the top with shamrock decorations from Michael’s.
