Kiss Me, I’m Irish!

At least a little of me is Irish. Today’s Facebook post is about painting things for St. Patrick’s Day. Here’s the link to the catalog page if you want to check out sizes and prices. Luck of the Irish

We have decanters and beer steins, cups and mugs, and you can put shamrocks on bowls and plates, spoon rests, and teapots, too. Remember that these pieces must be glazed to  make them food safe.

These little pieces are ornaments to be hung from a pull-chain, or a kitchen cupboard handle, or a doorknob. They can be added to a picture or to a wreath for your front door. The first are two-sided, the second picture is all flat cookie-cutter pieces and they also make nice refrigerator magnets. All can be done in stains and taken home the same day.

Here we have some small trinket boxes — jewelry, or change, or perhaps a little candy. They can be done in glazes or in stains, your choice. The lower-left picture shows the boy lid for the jar on the right.

Our Irish figurines. Here’s Peter, our 13″ tall Irish boy. And you can dress up any of the dolls by giving them a skirt with an Irish flair. (We do not have this particular doll, but do have several others that would work just as well.)

For that corned beef and cabbage dinner . . . here’s a potato bowl and cabbage leaf!

What a unique way to share Irish heritage with the kids!
Most of these pieces can be easily painted by children,
some even by toddlers, like the shamrock box, mug, or cabbage leaf!
And keep in mind that every Friday is Kids Krafts Night!
