St. Patrick's Day decor - Irish wall art with family name

Sláinte! Saint Patrick's Day may be just one day of merriment, but it's great to keep that Irish warmth and sense of heritage all year long! While we can't expect to have hearty food and flowing drinks every day (we wish!), we can maintain a homey, Celtic vibe in our homes through decor. Here are fantastic St. Paddy's Day decorations to enliven your space on March 17 and beyond.

 

1. Irish blessing wall art

This traditional Irish prayer is a lovely blessing to family and friends, especially when they're about to go on a journey or take on a big task. As such, this rustic wall print would be perfect hanging on your hallway, doorway, or office. The realistic wood design is an aesthetic bonus!

P.S. Thinking of classy St. Patrick's Day party favors or gifts? This ready-to-hang canvas print comes in smaller sizes for as low as $44.95!

2. Celtic knot throw pillows and blanket

Changing your throw pillows and coverlets is a super-easy, non-committal way to change the mood of the room. And when you deck your sofas with green and gold, the mood is Irish celebration! Try our green throw pillow (above) and fleece blanket (below), both featuring traditional Celtic design. Magnificent and cozy at the same time!

3. DIY St. Paddy's Day hat floral centerpiece

What's a feast day without pretty table-toppers? If you want a St. Patrick's Day centerpiece that's on-theme yet still elegant, try decorating a plain vase to look like a leprechaun hat! Fill with flowers and foliage, and you've got the perfect focal point for your St. Paddy's party. The DIY flower vase above is by designer Liz Bushong.

 

4. Scenic Ireland wall art

checkered table runner - Irish wall art - Ireland in your heart no matter where you live

If you're an Irishman abroad and you're missing the majestic landscapes of old Éire, this artwork is for you. It features a photo of Irish cliffs with the quote "Ireland: that place forever in your heart no matter where you live." Designed to look like a wood print, this piece is actually printed on canvas and stretched on a wood frame, ready to hang in any room of your home. (Or you could gift this to an Irish friend as well!)

5. DIY Shamrock Garland

Nothing says festive like garlands and streamers! You can buy these decorations from stores, but we recommend making them yourself. DIY party decor is often cheaper, and if you make them with plastic-free materials like paper, they're better for the environment, too. Plus, they can be easy to make! Just ask crafter Liz of the Hoosier Homemade blog, who made the St. Paddy's garland above.

  

6. Irish-American flag wall decor

Multinational families have many fascinating stories to tell. If you're proud of your Irish-American heritage, display this dual-flag wall decor in your home. Combining the flags of USA and Ireland, this piece can be customized to feature your family name right in the center. It can spark interesting conversations at your party!

7. Homey Irish family decor

Here's an artwork that an Irish family would love to display all year long. This customized "Home" wall sign bears your family name and beginning year, surrounded by Irish or Celtic motifs. We personally like the contrast between its green print and realistic wood-like background. Hang this in your entryway, living room, or dining room for a cozy, welcoming ambiance.

If you're into the rustic, fairy-tale woodland vibe of rural Ireland, capture that naturalistic feel with this family artwork. This light-green canvas print features a Celtic monogram of your family name with some whimsical calligraphy and a pair of shamrocks on top. Now all you need is some hot toddy and a couch to curl up in!

9. DIY shamrock table runner

Got time for one more St. Patrick's DIY craft? This one's super quick and easy! Green up your table setting with a table runner made by tying together some felt shamrocks. That's it. It's that simple. The result, however, is so charming! We got this idea from savvy crafter Holly of the Ribbons and Glue blog.

 

10. Crazy, loud Irish family wall art

11. Bonus: A funny beer-themed wall sign

We can't end this St. Patrick's Day list without a toast to festive drinks! If you're serving alcohol at your party, or if you just want to decorate your home bar, display this funny wall sign and get your guests laughing. This canvas print comes with a wood frame on the back so it's ready to hang on your wall. Or you can get a smaller version to place prominently on your bar shelf.
