Whether you’re throwing a party or just looking to add a little festive joy to your home or office during the end of the winter season, these DIY St. Patrick’s Day decorations make for a fun activity. And don’t worry—if you make too many you can stop in at H&H Chevy and we’ll turn the place into a St. Patrick’s Day celebration.
It’s never a bad time for cupcakes. When you add St. Patrick’s Day toppers, you have a festive treat that coworkers or friends will love. Simply create a festive print or drawing with paint and colored paper, attach to a popsicle stick, and insert.
Replace the winter wreath above your fireplace with a homemade banner. Craft paper, glitter, string, and green paint allow you to create your own triangle banner. Each triangle displays one letter to spell “Lucky” or another festive word of your choice.
If you’re throwing a party, this easy craft is the perfect centerpiece for a table. Cut out four-leaf clovers from green card stock of different shades and then glue them to skewers. Stick the clover-topped skewers into a pot or a vase and you have your very own clover garden right there on your table.
This Valentine’s Day, show everyone how much you care by making DIY, one-of-a-kind Valentine’s Day cards that will warm your loved ones’ hearts. In particular, spend some extra time crafting the perfect card for that one special someone—they will surely be touched by your thoughtfulness. Here are some ideas for handmade, DIY Valentine’s Day cards from us at H&H Chevy.
Be Creative with Materials
Everyone knows that hearts are the go-to decoration for Valentine’s Days, so try to be a little more creative with what you use to make your cards. Use Scrabble tiles, Bingo boards, lace, or some of your favorite pictures. By all means, include some hearts and Cupid arrows as well. In addition, I’m sure no one would mind if you incorporated chocolate or something equally scrumptious in your DIY card.
Be Thoughtful with Design
If you’re spending the time to make DIY Valentine’s Day Cards, keep in mind the card recipient’s favorite things. If they like glam, use glitter and jewels. If they’re the outdoorsy type, draw lovebirds or use some beautiful pressed flowers. If they enjoy literature and poetry, use those scrabble tiles or find some poems that express how you feel—or write your own!
