You and your aging loved one can start making St. Patrick’s Day plans by looking through these crafts. Many of them can be used throughout the year to add a dash of color to the impending festivities. Check out all our St. Patrick’s Day crafts recommendations below!
St. Patrick’s Day Wreath
These wreaths can be produced using a wide range of materials, including clothes pins, hedge clippings, pool noodles, and dried beans, as well as more classic art materials like ribbons, mesh, felt, and fabric. Allow your elderly loved one to choose their preferred version and see what supplies are available. Note that some wreath forms may necessitate the pre-preparation of some parts, such as trimming hedge clippings, or may necessitate greater manual dexterity than others.
Decorate your space with these shamrock-styled garlands made from card stock, crepe streamers, toilet paper rolls, ribbon, felt, and even repurposed book pages, created by your loved ones. While they all have the same shamrock and clover shape as their base, they come in a range of styles and include some old favorites that are no longer accessible on their original websites.
St. Patrick’s Day Hats
St. Patrick’s Day hats are available in a variety of colors. These crafts can be constructed with paper, felt, foam, or even toilet paper rolls, whether it’s a little leprechaun hat or a clover crown. For loved ones with hand dexterity concerns, these projects may require some preliminary cutting. For hat instructions that need sewing, use gluing instead.
St. Patrick’s Day Jars
These ornamental jars come in a variety of shapes and applications, including dioramas, lanterns, vases, goodies jars, and even sensory jars in the St. Patrick’s style. Choose a design that appeals to you or your aging loved one, as well as one that fits your present craft supplies. These crafts are probably not ideal for loved ones with hand dexterity and strength concerns because they require the handling of small components and easily breakable material.
Potted Paper Shamrocks
These shamrocks and clover come in a range of patterns and are constructed from paper in a variety of forms, including card stock and even toilet paper rolls. The rest of the set-up materials include terra cotta pots, dried branches, living houseplants, and basic mason jars.
Leprechaun Candy Holders
What’s St. Patrick’s Day without a tiny leprechaun to go along with the rainbows, gold pots, and gold-wrapped candy? These adorable little guys come in a number of styles, including single and multi-candy piece holders, candy bags, and candy jars. The majority of leprechauns are made of paper, but there are a few exceptions, such as mason jars, thick yarn, toilet paper rolls, and clay. Instead of utilizing expensive hole punchers and cricut machines, have your loved ones use good old-fashioned scissor cutting with colorful paper, as several tutorials recommend, as well as air-dry clay rather than baked clay.
