I like holidays where the celebration is only what you make of it. St. Patrick’s Day is coming, and what fun it is to decorate and add some unexpected leprechaun games to your regular routine. Thanks to deals from your favorite stores, like dollar store finds and Walmart St. Patrick’s Day decorations, plus a bit of creativity, it’s easy to celebrate! Check out these DIY St. Patrick’s Day decorations.
