Paper Clover Centerpiece
For this DIY St. Patrick’s Day decoration, you’ll need green paper, glue, toothpicks or small wooden rods, potting soil, and a small terracotta pot. Start by tracing or drawing the outlines of four leaf clovers on your green cardstock paper. Then, cut them out and glue one to the end of each toothpick or small wooden rod. Fill the terracotta pot about halfway full with potting soil, then push each of the clovers into the dirt at different layers until the pot is full. You can also decorate the pot with washi tape, glitter, or stickers. Purchasing these items won’t break your budget, and your table will look beautiful. This is also a great budget-savvy idea if you’re throwing a St. Patrick’s Day party with multiple tables.
