I’ve come across some fun ideas and crafts celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this year. The usual extent of my celebrations is to squeeze a couple drops of green food coloring to some pancake batter. However, these bloggers have me almost convinced to step dance to the next level!

Rainbow Cupcakes


Julie, who insists she is not a cook or baker, made these zany cupcakes.

Angry Julie's Rainbow Cupcakes

I don't know, Julie, they look kind of awesome to be a first timer's effort! That sparkle top is almost over the top.

Leprechaun Trap


Love this low commitment, easy, and fast to make leprechaun trap using Popsicle sticks and a little glue


Charming to do with little ones.

Shamrock Prints

Looking for a simple craft you can make with things you already have on hand? I like these shamrock apple prints from The Chocolate Muffin Tree.

Shamrock apple stamping

Seriously, what a snap! An apple or two, cut in half, some green paint, and paper. Bam. Done.

Leprechaun Trap Cake

I saw Megan over at Not Martha post her crazy Leprechaun Cake I freaked out a little. It’s a cacophony of really fun ideas.

Chicago River

Rachael was traveling in Chicago this week when she snapped pictures of the Chicago River dyed green.

It’s just food coloring, but what a blast!

Something a little more sophisticated? Smitten Kitchen’s Chocolate Stout Cake--made with Guiness--is a modern classic

Whether you celebrate with a green-dyed India Pale Ale, a pint of creamy Guinness, or some kelly-green milk, here's to enjoying your St. Patrick's Day!
