St. Patty's Day Centerpiece Tutorial (Kid-Friendly!)

This is one of the cheapest and easiest projects I've ever done.  I am a leader for my daughter's Frontier Girls troop--We have six girls ages 4-6.  I did this project with all the girls on Monday afternoon and it went fabulously.  I was a little worried about Mod Podging with six wee ones, but they did a fantastic job, which emphasized to me how simple this project really is.

Want to know the best part?  Each centerpiece costs under $2!  All of the supplies (except for the Mod Podge) were purchased at our local Dollar Tree.

-Small square candle holder
-Scented tea candle
-Green decorative glass
-St. Patrick's Day Napkins
-Mod Podge  (Not pictured)
-Foam brushes (Not pictured, but available at the Dollar Store)
-Scissors (Not pictured)

Unfold a napkin.  Use your scissors to cut out two of the green squares with clovers inside.
Mod Podge a clover square to two opposite sides of the candle holder.
Fill the candle holder with the green class about 2/3 full.  Place the tea candle into the center of the candle holder.  (You can kind of twist it down into the green glass a little bit.)


I'm currently working on a Home/Life Organization Binder.  It's nearing completion, so I hope to have photos up soon.
Also coming soon... A Spring Wreath! 


  1. This is very cute. The decorative glass adds such pretty depth and color. And this does seem easy. I bet my toddler-kiddo could make a pretty snazzy (though crumpled and lopsided) version. ;)

  2. very cute -- I may have to try but with a Chanukah flavor (or any other holiday!)


I can't wait to hear what you think!
