When my daughter was little, I used to decorate for all of the holidays throughout the year. I no longer do this other than at the end of the year, but the creative side of me still likes a little bit of seasonal decor when the various holidays roll around. This is where printables come into play. This St. Patrick’s Day Printable is perfect to frame and display.
Even though St.Patrick’s day is not one where I really get into the decorating spirit. But I do like to have the touch of green around my home for the day. The printable will add a lovely touch for our St. Pat’s party table when we have friends over to celebrate.
My mother was Irish, so I went hunting for just the right message. This Old Irish Blessing had the perfect wording. My parents often talked about traditions that were supposed to bring us luck and other forms of blessings, so this was the perfect message to use in my printable.
May your pockets be heavy, and your heart be light. May good luck pursue you each morning and night.
Here is how to use a St. Patrick’s day Printable as a home decor item.
Framing a printable is fun to do. You can coordinate the color to match the printable. In this case, I wanted the words of the Irish toast to be the star of the Picture, so I removed the glass from an old picture frame and sprayed it with white matte spray paint.

If you would like to make this project, you can use the download below to print out an 8 x 10 jpeg file by clicking on the image here, or print it out in PFD format here.
This St. Patrick’s Day Printable is a high-resolution image that is sized to fit in an 8×10-inch frame. You may print it on regular paper or special card stock on your home printer and trim it to size (standard paper size is 8 1/2″ by 11″. Most photo labs also will print it for you professionally if you save the image to a computer stick before you go to the store.
Once the paint was nice and dry, I inserted the printable into the picture frame. A fun and inexpensive green plastic necklace added a bit of color to the frame. NOTE: I used an 8 x 10 frame with no matte. If you want to use a matte around the printable, you will need to use an 11 x 14″ frame.
Why not the Four Leaf Clover?
I used the three leafed clover in my printable for a reason. We all tend to think of the four leaf clover as the symbol for good luck, but the three-leafed clover, which symbolizes the Holy Trinity, is actually the true symbol for St. Patrick’s Day.
Pockets that are heavy and burdens that are light on the heart with good luck following me around day and night. What more could I wish for someone for St. Patrick’s Day?
