St. Patrick’s Day Mantel Decorations


Today let’s explore some creative ways on how to incorporate party supplies into your holiday home décor. I don’t know about you, but I’m always excited about multi-tasking!  You can either re-purpose leftover items or intentionally purchase supplies with these fresh ideas in mind. Either way, the results are impressive and, best of all, fast.

We’ll start with some eye-candy photos and the basic set up before we dive into the details.

Mantle’s are the most conducive spot for revolving holiday décor. If you don’t have a mantle, opt for a floating chunky shelf, buffet or entry hall table.


Purchase a few “staging items” like frames, glass jars, wreath stands, decorative balls and greenery to rotate through each of your holiday displays.

Choose a color scheme and motif. Focusing your decorative elements helps to keep displays from being too visually overwhelming. The mantle here uses greens and the rainbow spectrum while keeping thematic features to just shamrocks and rainbows.

Now for the details … because life is in those, right?


Wrapping a wire floral form with tinsel garland makes for a super quick and brilliantly shiny wreath. Use green twist ties from the produce department to secure the garland to the wire form.


Some shamrock cut-outs and a package of paper straws work together to make this charming banner. Cut straws into pieces and hot glue to the backs of the cut-outs. Feed baker’s twine through for hanging.


Turn a leftover shamrock cut-out into instant art by framing it with a wide white mat.


For more gallery-worthy mantle art, adhere party buttons to white cardstock in a grid pattern. Frame with a wide white mat and voila, very Andy Warhol. Three-dimensional foam adhesive allows you to skip removing the pin backs … which makes this project not only incredibly impactful, but incredibly fast as well.


The addition of candy to any holiday décor will make it totally saaahweet! Containers with lids help keep little hands (and bugs) from snatching these golden chocolate coins and rainbow gum balls.


Speaking of little hands, why not get them involved in your home décor crafting. It will make for some unique and memorable additions to your holiday collections. Check out next week’s post for specifics on how to create these projects using milk bottles and crepe paper.


Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! Wishing you all kinds of LUCK as you start re-thinking and re-purposing your current stash (or soon to be purchased stash … wink, wink) of party supplies. May a blessing of creative crafting be upon you!
