THIS ST. PATRICK’S DAY LUCKY CENTER PIECE IS THE PERFECT CHARMING DECORATION TO MAKE WITH YOUR GRANDKIDS! HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
- empty large baby food jar, or mason jar cleaned and label removed
- sticks from outside, cut to fit in the baby food jar
- natural raffia jute rope or raffia works great for the tie
- brown or black craft paint (chalk paint works best to cover glass, but folk art is fine too)
- green and gold glitter
- green, yellow, and white construction paper
- craft glue
- basic arts and crafts supplies
