DIY: St. Patricks Day Coasters and Party Garland

I’m no expert on the subject, but what I do know about Saint Patricks Day is that you need a lot of green, shamrocks, and beer. If you’re planning on throwing a St. Patty’s Day shindig, you’re probably going to need coasters for all of the pints of beer that are going to be making their way around your house. Water rings are the worst! Is that just the most obnoxious thing I’ve ever said? Whatever. They totally are.

These round fiberboard coasters are my favorite because they’re like $8 for 50 of them on Amazon, and you can customize them and make them as cute as you want. Obviously I went with green and gold shamrocks for St Patricks Day.

I used my Martha Stewart stencil and paints and just stenciled my little heart out.
