DIY Shamrock Home Decor
Create this St. Patrick’s Day Rainbow Shamrock home decor door hanger using items mostly from the Dollar Tree. This rainbow-painted Shamrock will brighten any space within your home. I added this simple and easy DIY piece to my coffee bar for a fun and festive look.
With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be cute to make something a little less traditional than the normal green shamrock to display in my home.
I don’t typically decorate for St. Patty’s Day, as it not a big holiday for us. However, we do recognize the day, and somewhere down the line in my family’s genealogy, there is a teeny tiny bit of Irish in us.
So, throwing a little attention to the day couldn’t hurt, right? And who wants to risk getting pinched? Not me!
Plus, my kids kind of get a kick out the day at school so having a few lucky charms sprinkled around our coffee bar makes for a fun holiday to kick-off Spring.
A Rainbow-Painted Shamrock
While walking through a store a few weeks ago, I was inspired by Shamrock that was created with slats of wood similar to shiplap. I do love shiplap! However, this shiplap was a little different. Each piece was painted in color from the rainbow.
A first, I thought how cute that would be, and it is different than the normal green Shamrocks you see everywhere.
After about a minute, being the DIY girl I am I knew I could recreate this cute piece by using items from the Dollar Tree. And that’s exactly what I set out to do.
I shared the DIY in the making on my Facebook Page Live, which you can catch the replay here. And by the way, if you don’t follow me on Facebook – go there and Like the page and turn on the notifications. I go LIVE every Wednesday night (mostly)!
I love a good DIY, especially one that is a dupe form a more expensive product. Since this is not the most celebrated holiday, I don’t mind spending a few dollars to decorate for the occasion, versus upwards to $100 on decorations I will only display a few days.
Nonetheless, I love living live seasonally, as I’ve mentioned before, so a splurge here and there can’t hurt. But, as the Crafty Life Mom that I am, why spend more when you can make it for less!

Painting the Shamrock
Wooden Shamrock – Dollar Tree ( I also used the wooden banner from a second Dollar Tree wood blank)
Paint – Chalk paints or acrylic paints work great
Hot glue and a glue gun
Putting it All Together
Once you have it all painted in the stripes or solid color, glue the banner onto the Shamrock. I added my decal, and then some glitter to highlight the shape of the wooden banner piece.
