Are you looking for some St. Patrick’s Day home decorating inspiration? It takes just a few green accents to give your home some St. Patrick’s Day flair.

I focused on adding some St. Patrick’s Day spirit to my entertainment center area. As the focal point of my living room, I wanted to give the bookcases and dresser some green without going overboard on the holiday-themed décor. I added in just enough green to make it fun.

Take a look at how I decorated for St. Patrick’s Day and you’ll see how some bright pops of green can help you celebrate St. Patty’s Day, welcome spring and bring a happy mood to your home.

How I decorated for St. Patty’s Day:
– Hung up a $3 “St. Pats Day” felt banner from the $1 spot at Target
– Added some green plants, books and bowls to my bookcases
– Spray-painted mason jars gold and added chalkboard signs (tutorial coming soon!)
– Added a green wine bottle and a gold wine bottle (that I spray-painted) to the décor
– Mixed in a $4 bouquet of daisies from Trader Joe’s

While I’m not usually big on decorating for holidays that come and go so fast, I had some fun this year decorating for St. Patty’s Day, and I realized it’s nice to have an excuse to switch up your décor once in a while.

Here’s how I created a St. Patrick’s Day effect in no time.

Decorate with green
I’m not reinventing the wheel here with the idea of decorating with green for St. Patty’s Day. But I do want to note that you don’t have to purchase new décor in order to decorate your home with green for St. Patrick’s Day.

Shop your house for whatever green items you have. Grab that green vase. Those books with green covers. And don’t forget the greenery. When you corral all of those green items in one spot—a bookcase, a shelf or a table—then you instantly transform that space into a St. Patrick’s Day theme.

Add in touches of gold
Gold complements green and goes hand-in-hand with St. Patrick’s Day.

If you don’t have any gold items in your home, get ready to grab your can of spray paint. I spray-painted mason jars and wine bottles gold. (Tutorial coming soon!) I really love the look of mason jars spray-painted gold. Especially if they have etchings on them, such as the “Ball” logo. The etchings really pop when they’re spray-painted a color.

I don’t usually think of myself as a gold kind of girl, but I’m loving the color lately. Gold is pretty trendy right now, and you can never go wrong with adding metallics to your décor. They add texture.

Use what you have
You don’t need to buy new décor for St. Patrick’s Day if you don’t want to. Use what you have on hand. Drape burlap fabric over your mantel. Create a table centerpiece with cut-out paper shamrocks. Make a wreath for your door using green fabric scraps. It’s easy!
