DIY: St. Patrick’s Day Banner


I think St. Patrick’s Day is an underrated holiday! I know we send our kids to school wearing green and we may even make green eggs in the morning as a fun treat for breakfast, but that seems to be where the celebrations start and stop.  Not many people I know actually decorate for St. Patrick’s Day; they go straight from Valentine’s Day to Easter. In an effort to be a bit more intentional about St. Patrick’s Day, I decided to create some home decor and am eager to share it.  This super easy DIY St. Patrick’s Day Banner could be used as a simple house decoration, or for a festive St. Patrick’s Day party!

Materials you will need:

  • Pre-made Banner (this one is from Target – here’s one similar –  I have seen them on CLEARANCE at craft stores too)
  • Gold Tissue Paper
  • Lucky Gold Coins
  • Adhesive
  • Glue Gun (not pictured)
  • Scissors

Supplies for DIY St. Patrick's Day Banner

Step 1

Cut the strips of tissue paper into fringe. Be sure not to cut all the way through the strip.

Step 3

Adhere to the banner. I like using rolling scrapbook adhesive for this, but you could use your glue gun as well.
