St. Patrick's Day

Your St. Patrick’s Day will be nothing but lucky with these green and gold crafts! Make sure your outfit has a wee bit of green with crochet shamrocks or a fun paper leprechaun hat! Decorate mason jars for the occasion. Paint them green and white for fresh decor or add leprechaun accessories to a jar for a candy holder. Give St. Patrick’s Day gifts to lucky recipients. Cute little shamrock flowers fit perfectly in jewelry boxes, and a felt pot of gold holds chocolate coins. Or make fun scratch-off cards with hidden messages! Add a four-leaf clover pincushion to your crafts room, printable garlands to your mantel, or “lucky me” art to a favorite frame for fast St. Patrick’s Day decor.

Valentine's Day

We love Valentine’s Day, but we love free printables even more! These sweet freebies are so cute, and make it easy to say “I love you” to family and friends. Giving flowers? Don’t forget to include graphic black-and-white bouquet wraps. Need a great present for your significant other? Printable coupons (our fave is breakfast in bed) are a gift that keep on giving. Celebrate the girls with Galentine’s Day postcards and coloring pages they’ll love. Send your love in the mail with cute cards (with matching gift tags in case there’s a present, too!). Kids will adore giving fun pencils with cute gift tag toppers. Or have them fill printable gift boxes with yummy candy. Hosting a Valentine’s Day party? Hang an adorable “I Love You” banner and stock a photo booth with fun themed props. A pretty desktop wallpaper is perfect for celebrating love all year round!

MIY This: Wreaths

Wreaths

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

Wreaths are the perfect holiday decoration! They can make your door a welcome greeting, transform a mantel, turn an outdoor fence into festive decor, or act as big-impact wall art. Plus, these wreaths easily transition from the holidays to winter for long-term pieces. Wrap store-bought wreaths with fabric or yarn — them embellish with pine sprigs, yarn pom-poms, or cute yarn trees for easy (and cheap!) decor. Put paper into play for a bright, color-block wreath or a classic evergreen wreath with wood bead berry accents. Make rustic decor with a wood star wreath or one covered with pinecones and nuts. Go modern with oversize wreaths with big impact. A hulu hoop becomes a dream catcher wreath with eucalyptus accents, while a gold wreath becomes the “o” in a joyful mantel centerpiece. Or turn to classic silver tinsel with disco ball ornaments for a sparkling wreath that’s perfect for chilly temps.

Ornaments

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

Handmade ornaments add a special touch to your tree, make great gifts for family and friends, and are the perfect creative outlet during the stressful holiday season. Use cookie cutter shapes and metallic leather to make classic ornaments. Basic crafts paint can completely transform storebought balls. Paint retro heart shapes or add metallic touches. Wooden ornaments look pretty with painted motifs or geometric designs. Update cheap cardboard ornaments with fave holiday fabric. Friends will love personalized emoji ornaments — the faces are made with vinyl shapes!  Poke holes in clay shapes for a subtle decoration. A mini woven hanger or a crochet star are fun ways to use yarn scraps for beautiful ornaments.
