Shamrock Table Centerpiece ~ I love St. Patrick’s’ Day! I love shamrocks! I love the colour green! I love quick and easy crafts like this Shamrock Table Centerpiece I made.
My Budget For This Shamrock Table Centerpiece
I set a budget of $10.00. I used a lot of things I had in the house and I picked up the rest of the materials at the dollar store and at Michaels for half price. I even got the shamrock plant on sale for $2.99 at the grocery store.
How To Care For A Shamrock Plant
The instructions that came with the shamrock plant are:
- Place in a bright location but keep out of direct sunlight.
- Allow the soil to become slightly dry to the touch before watering giving a thorough watering.
- Do not allow the plant to stand in excess water.
- Fertilize moderately.
How To Make A Shamrock Table Centerpiece
I placed the shamrock plant in its green plastic liner in the center of a square glass bowl that I had bought previously at Wal-Mart for a Christmas centerpiece. Then I layered different decorative accents including green glass beads, green glass gems, gold looking nuggets and two different kinds of shamrocks.
When I need to water the plant I just pull it out of the green plastic liner, run it under a gentle flow of water in the sink and let the excess water drain out before I put it back into the liner. This way the decorative accents won’t get wet or dirty.
This Shamrock Table Centerpiece will sit on my kitchen table for the month of March, which is a nice sunny location. At the end of the month I plan to dismantle the centerpiece and store the decorative accents and the glass bowl for other crafty projects. I plan to re-pot the shamrock into a more permanent plant pot and keep it for the rest of the year in a different sunny location in the house. Hopefully, I can make the same centerpiece next March using the same materials.
