As March approaches, I always wish to make St. Patrick’s day crafts, but find it hard to justify spending a lot of money on a holiday that only lasts for one day. But because we upcycle I am completely comfortable going wild with St. Patrick’s day crafts. This is a great upcycling project for experienced crafters and beginner crafters alike.
A Fun St. Patrick’s day craft with upcycling power!
St. Patrick’s Day- the fun holiday that is lumped between Valentine’s Day and Easter. It’s easy to skip over if we don’t stop to experience the fun. Crafting can make sure that we have a great time celebrating the special holiday.
As you know, we are obsessed with upcycling, dollar stores, and thrift shops, and this craft is no different. We found the frame at a local thrift shop. The hearts are actually Valentine’s day dollar store finds ON CLEARANCE! If you have any remaining Valentine’s day items this would be an excellent craft. If not, make sure you check out your local stores the first few days after Valentine’s Day to get all the crafts at quite the discount!
