St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner. And I needed some fun, lively decorations to add to our home — fast! Last year, I added a free printable subway poster to our kitchen for the season. What to add this year? How about some DIY Saint Patrick’s Day garland to place over the fireplace!

This project is ridiculously easy to do. But I’m so thrilled with the pop of color it has added to our living room. I was able to complete this project in under a half an hour — so easy anyone can do it.
- Unfinished wood banners
- Thin twine
- Crafting tape or other decorated tape
Just a quick note. You can find unfinished wood banners at your local craft shop or online below. Also, I chose to use decorated Scotch tape because it is thicker than typical crafting tape.
Step 1: Line up the tape along the top of the wood banner. Don’t worry about perfect edges. Leave some tape off of the sides.
Step 2: Alternate the decorated tape to create the pattern you’d like.
Step 3: Once you’ve covered the entire banner, trim off the edges of the tape with a pair of scissors.
Step 4: Poke a hole in the tape with a dull pencil to create an opening for the twine.
Step 5: Weave the twine through the holes and tada! You have yourself a pretty Saint Patrick’s Day Garland you made yourself.
