Easy St Patricks Day Decorations

Gussy up your digs with some easy St Patricks Day decorations. We've come up with a cute idea that you can use to celebrate St. Paddy's Day this year.

We're all looking for that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, right? Well, we've adapted that theme for our latest easy craft idea.

It never ceases to amaze us just how far a few crayons, some construction paper, scissors and glue will take us on our crafting journey, but Maya's hit it out of the ballpark with this one.

Let's take a peek and see what she has in store for us:

A rainbow and pot of gold hanging decoration


  • Card Stock (black and white)
  • Crayons and a pencil or pen
  • Kleenex
  • Fishing wire (not really wire, it's plastic and sold in craft stores)
  • Tape
  • White glue
  • Paint brush
  • Gold glitter
  • Craft glue (we use UHU glue)
  • Our rainbow template and our cloud and pot template
  • Scissors


    1. Print out our rainbow template on white card stock. Cut out the rainbow and then color it in.

    2. Next, print out our cloud and pot template. Cut the pot of gold out of the white card stock and color black, or trace our template onto black card stock and cut out.

    Print out our rainbow template.

    3. Glue small bits of crumpled kleenex to the top of the pot. This will be your "gold".

    6. Glue the cloud onto one side of the rainbow, and the pot of gold to the other side.

    Print out our rainbow template.

    7. Tape a length of fishing wire to the back of the rainbow, then look for a great place to hang you wall decoration...'cause that's it!

    Well done!
