DIY St. Patrick’s Day Crafts + Festive Cupcake Recipe

While it’s not the largest US holiday, St. Patrick’s Day is widely celebrated stateside. Whether that means hitting up church, a local parade, your local pub or just wearing green to work so you don’t get pinched, it’s an all-around fun day. To commemorate March 17th and the celebration of all things green, we have our favorite holiday themed DIY (clover crochet), cupcake recipe (herbal mint, anyone?) and a few of our favorite holiday themed handmades from artists all over for you to admire or get inspired to try your hand at making your own! Tell us in the comments: how will you be celebrating?


Whether you use them as mini coasters for your drinks or string them up as spring-inspired bunting in your home, these crochet clovers will surely have you smiling. The free crochet pattern from LilySong is featured on Craftsy and is the ideal starter pattern for anyone wishing to learn crochet or still relatively new to the craft. The pattern only uses basic crochet stitches and leaves tons of room for final product inspiration. Still need something green for your outfit? Customize by attaching a simple pin to the back to accessorize a blazer or by hot gluing to a simple headband for a festive hairpiece.

Click on Craftsy above to find the free pattern and download!
