Getting Ready for Saint Patrick's Day

Getting Ready for Saint Patrick's Day

Saint Patrick’s Day is fast approaching, and what better way to remember the life and ministry of Saint Patrick than with some ornaments?  Some symbols that often remind people of this holiday include clover and leprechauns, but just about anything green will also work well.  The Bounty Towels website gives some directions for how to make simple ornaments that you can use to celebrate this holiday.

One suggestion given by Bounty is to make a Saint Patrick’s Day ornament from a clear glass ball. You can add shredded green foil or shamrock confetti to the glass ball and then place the cap back on it. After this, the website suggests using a hot glue gun to secure a piece of dark green ribbon to the ornament before hanging it up. This is a very simple project that children and adults alike can enjoy doing.

Another suggestion Bounty has is to knit a four-leaf clover. According to the website, this requires only basic knitting skills and the size of the clover can also be modified fairly easily. For complete instructions on how to knit this shamrock, you can go to bounty towels.

You could also cut out shamrocks, frogs, or leprechauns from green poster board, foam, or construction paper. If you use poster board or construction paper, you may want to laminate them in order to make them extra durable. Look for some green and white strands of beads or tinsel to add to your tree and you will have the perfect Saint Patrick’s Day décor just in time for celebrating this special occasion.
