St. Patrick's Day Chalkboard Crafts and Decor: Luck of the Irish!

If you're a fellow reveler of St. Patrick's Day,  then you know that it's all about celebrating Irish culture and traditions. Some does it by dressing up in green and grabbing a pint of Guinness, while some like to sprinkle some Irish spirit to their homes through decors.

No matter how you choose to celebrate, St. Patrick's Day is a fun and lively holiday that brings people together. And believe us, even the non-Irish ones do it, too.

One great way to decorate your home is by adding traditional, iconic Irish symbols and elements like the shamrocks, leprechauns, and all things green.

But if you're one of those people who prefers going against over-the-top decors, we know a way to bring these good luck and fortune charms to life -  chalkboard crafts! They're versatile, they're reusable, and best of all, they're fun and easy to make. Let's dive in, shall we?


Chalkboard Signs

According to Irish folklore, famous Irish symbols like the four-leafed clover and a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow will have you blessed with good fortune. So why not spread some of that in your home? One great idea is to create a St. Patrick's Day chalk sign, such as this awesome artwork by calligraphy artist, Gadis (@madebymutiara).

Aren't the words "St. Patrick's" in green chalk and her lettering style quite the charm? Gadis used VersaChalk liquid chalk markers in set Vivid, to make these colors pop, with a table top chalkboard as her surface.

If you're feeling like giving all out, you can use a bigger surface with the words "Lucky" or "Good Luck" surrounded by hand-drawn shamrocks and leprechauns. Or you can freestyle whatever seems attractive for you, such as this chalk art.

Chalks aren't only for chalkboards, too. Vinyl sheets or chalkboard contact papers are also perfect for custom sizes.
