A lucky shamrock planter for St. Patrick’s Day.

I don’t usually do much to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day, and this year with Easter coming along 2 weeks later, I really didn’t want to put much effort (or money) into it.  So how about this?  A quick and easy St. Patty’s project using weeds and rocks from your yard.  Can’t get much cheaper than that, right? ha!

Step 1: go out in your yard and find a little patch of clover.
Step 2: dig it up and pop it into a little container or planter of some kind.

Step 3: grab some nice green sheet moss (which you should always have on hand)
Step 4: tuck it around the clover.

Give it a nice drink and while the clover perks up, find a nice smooth stone.
Step 1: paint it gold and let it dry.
Step 2: grab a paint pen or a Sharpie and write Lucky on it.

I initially used a white paint pen, but it wasn’t visible enough for me, so I went over it with a Sharpie.

That’s the extent of my St. Patty’s Day decor this year.  Easy, cheap and cute!
How do you decorate for the wearin’ of the green?

The only decorating I do is throw on my one green shirt and head to the bar!

Love this! Clover and moss I got!!

I do just a little St. Patty's decorating--write "Erin go bragh" on my chalkboard paint and a few things like that. And one of my favorite touches is very much like yours--I spray paint rocks gold and use them as hurricane globe filler. (They also make great pirates' gold--my boys loved this when they were little!) I have a St. Patrick's Day board on Pinterest, and I'm pinning this post to it! :)
