St. Patrick’s Day Lucky Lantern

Welcome to the monthly Creative Craft Hop!

A big Thank You to Sara from Birdz of a Feather for hosting 💕

I love all the early Spring holidays~

My son was born on Valentine’s Day

and my granddaughter’s birthday is St. Patrick’s Day

I have decorated a lantern for Valentine’s Day

It’s time to decorate it for St. Patrick’s Day!

I lined the bottom with paper cocktail napkins

Then I decided to use a painted leprechaun vase,

it was the perfect size

I filled it with a few faux forsythia branches

and perched a green velvet leprechaun hat on top

A lucky napkin was placed in front of the vase

with a pot of gold and a mini treat bag

Another pot of gold and some gold coins…

you can’t ever have too much gold ☘️

Irish flags are stuck in the top

Shamrocks, and a shamrock garland decorate the top

and a large lucky shamrock hangs on the door hook

May the luck of the Irish be with you!

    Jenna, Your St. Paddy’s Day lantern is super cute and oh so festive! I know your leprechaun is happy to be locked safely inside with a stash of gold. 🙂

    Leave it to you to come up with something so fun and creative Jenna! My favourite colour is green but you’re right that one can never have too much gold :).

    How fun is that lantern? I love St. Patrick’s day too. I was just getting my SPD decor out yesterday. This gives me a ton of inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. You never know where a little leprechaun might be lurking!

  5. I just love decorating my lantern for the season too. Your lantern turned out super cute. Love the vase you painted.

    Jenna, this is so fun! I love your leprechaun–you reminded me to bring out my little vintage guy! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  7. That’s really cute, Jenna. Love seeing the forsythia in it!

    What a great idea! I use to decorate for little holiday like these. But as I get older (I’m 75) I’m trying to simplify. This is so helpful to confine it to the area we our in the most.

    • Thank you Nancy! I don’t decorate as much as I used to either, but I still love to have some seasonal things around. I’ve spent the last few days stashing Valentines and bringing out Mardi Gras and St. Pat’s. The great thing about a decorative lantern is that it’s easily moved around for instant decor in the kitchen, family room, or on a table!

    Your lantern is adorable Jenna! What a fun way to celebrate the holiday! The little flag on top is just perfect! I am getting ready to switch all mine over to spring. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend ahead!

  10. The lantern is super cute with the little leprechaun and a pot of gold! Be safe today, Jenna and Happy Thursday!

    How cute and adorable is this St. Patrick’s Day Lantern, Jenna! I’m sure your granddaughter loves it! My son was born on that day, too – at twenty-six weeks. It was a very difficult time for us but I know the luck of the Irish was shining on him!

  12. Shannon@Belle Bleu Interiors says:

    Jenna, your lantern is absolutely precious with that cute little leprechaun! I can’t believe St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. Like you, I look forward to the spring holidays. Enjoy your day! Happy Thursday!

    Jenna, I love the St Patrick’s Day lantern and I love St. Patrick’s Day. I always add a little something green to the hutch. I really love this lantern and how you dress ti up for holidays. Love this creative project……..

  14. Ann says:

    This is such a cute way to decorate for St. Patrick’s Day. I love all the little details you put together in your lantern!

  15. Sarah says:

    What a cute project! Jenna, you are always busy creating!. What a fun life! Your little leprechaun must be happy to be settled in with all that gold! Happy Thursday!

    I love the before (Valentine’s), after (St. Patrick’s) shots. It gives me great inspiration for how you can change up one basic piece so it looks like something entirely different.

  17. So adorable. I have similar lanterns that I only think to decorate for Fall and Christmas. Your project is a great inspiration to decorate them for every season.

  18. Lucky you for capturing the leprechaun:@)

  19. Your lantern looks adorable all decked out in green. So fun to decorate for different holidays. Love your leprechaun and a pot of gold.

  20. Nancy says:

    Oh so cute! You make the most adorable decorations! Love this!

  21. NikiLEOwife says:

    OK- where’s my lantern?! This turned out so cute. I love your little painted leprechaun. Lanterns are really the perfect seasonal decor that you can change out every month. Your St. Patrick’s Day one is just adorable! Happy hopping with you!
