green beer candle for St. Patrick's DayMarch (spring?) is almost here and it can’t come soon enough as far as I’m concerned.  If you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, it’s a fun excuse to decorate creatively with candles.

I’m not a big fan of green beer, but it seems to go over well on St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s a green beer candle from Shindigz.

If you want to make your own, just add a wick, melt some gel and dye it green! shamrock candleTo whip the wax, melt some paraffin and wait for it to set a little before whipping it with a whisk until frothy.

This floating shamrock candle from Crafted Candles is covered in gold glitter and would make a festive addition to any St. Patrick’s Day celebration.

I also found this adorable Leprechaun candle holder at Terry’s Village.

Other St. Patrick’s Day Candle Décor Ideas:

Find some shiny shamrock stickpins in a craft store and decorate pillar candles with them.

Place green candles on mirrors or decorative plates and sprinkle St. Patrick’s Day themed confetti around the candles.

Crochet a shamrock or cut one out of felt and glue it near the bottom of a taper candle. Finish the look off by placing the candle into a green candle holder. Find an easy four leaf clover pattern at Crochet Spot. If you’re so inclined, try your hand at the Leprechaun hat!
