Easy St. Patrick’s Lucky Penny Tree

Thank you for sharing!


Incredibly easy Saint Patrick's Day craft using tree branches, pennies, shamrocks and gold curling ribbon. Makes a wonderful holiday display item.

Today we are sharing a simple St. Patrick’s Day Craft.  The St. Patrick’s Lucky Penny Tree is not only inexpensive to make, but I had everything on hand with the exception of the shamrocks which were picked up at the dollar store.


I spray painted a few rocks and vase filler beads gold.   I had a few light green filler beads and I threw them in the mix and added them to a vase. Got to have a pot of gold, right?

I found some branches in the yard, and gave them a light spray with white paint and arranged them in a vase.  Then, I spray painted a few pennies with gold spray paint and hot glued gold curling ribbon on them in order to have something to hang them with.

Next, I hot glued the shamrocks directly on the branches.

Finished the look off with a cute ribbon.  Quick, easy, fun!

The tree looks gorgeous and festive sitting on the piano.  Are you getting your craft on for St. Patrick’s Day?

Wishing you all a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day and thank you for visiting!

Thank you for sharing!

    Cute! Cute! Cute! You know I love simple and easy crafts! This looks great. I'll be coming back to ask you to share this when our second Spring Blog Hop goes live next week on the 18th. It's going to be for St. Patrick's Day, Palm Sunday and General Spring Crafts. Oh, your Welcome Sign would be great for that, too!

    You just cannot beat frugal crafts! It turned out very nice! What a neat idea to spray paint the pennies and hot glue the curling ribbon to them! So glad you shared with us at Merry Monday and the #SCBH2015. This makes a nice centerpiece!

    Loss cost and no cost crafts are my favorite way to decorate the home. Very clever use of things you already had on-hand. Thanks for sharing on MM & #SCBH2015. Can't wait to see what you come up with next week.

    Hi Laurie. What a nifty idea. I wonder if nickels are just as lucky as pennies. The government got rid of pennies so they are a thing of the past.

      Thanks Darlene. Sad, soon nickles will feel like pennies. Thanks for stopping by!

    sweet! Love the luck I might generate from this penny tree 🙂 Simple, easy and so perfect for St. Paddy's day!! Actually was reading an article the other day where the only coin that's worth it's (metal) weight is the nickle (in the US). Seems the gov has diluted the copper in pennies like they did dimes and quarters. Nickels are probably next though!

      That is very interesting about what the US has done with the coins. I appreciate the visit today!
