Thrifty St. Patrick's Day Decor

Hey everyone! After putting everything away from Valentine's Day, I decided to do a little St. Patty's Day decorating. 

I used stuff that I already had and only purchased 2 new items. The chippy white porch post is from a consignment store in Mansfield. I love it and will probably leave it out all the time! The only other item I purchased was a $2 bag of gold coins at JoAnn's.

I put the gold coins in a green candle holder and brought out the subway art from last year. The greenery is from the Dollar Store (in a metal vase from Goodwill) and I added a little tag that I stamped "Lucky" on. I still love my DIY glass hurricane with a candle nestled in some split peas.

Here is the shelf in my hallway all decked out with green . . .

I printed off another subway art and framed it. The moss rocks were a $1 find from last year. The little vase is from a set of 3 for Valentine's Day. I just turned it around to hide the heart and added some flowers. Then I got the kids Scrabble game out and spelled "Lucky". 

So there is my Thrifty St. Patrick's Day decor. Remember that you can have fun decorating and it doesn't have to cost a lot! Once you have a few basic items you can use them over and over for every holiday. 


Linking up to the following parties:


  1. Very cute Lori! You are really good at putting things together that make a nice cohesive grouping. It's great when you can use things you already have too. Nice job!
