"Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links."

Unsurprisingly, we love any holiday that requires—or more realistically, encourages—some type of fun decoration to be put up around your home, your classroom, your office, or what have you. Although St. Patrick's Day was originally celebrated in Ireland to honor Saint Patrick, one of the country's patron saints, it has turned into a day that's celebrated throughout multiple countries. Whether you're honoring the holiday with a parade, party, or a pint or two, the options for a fun time put it high up on our favorite holidays list. With leprechauns, shamrocks, rainbows, and pots of gold, it's so easy to find fun, festive St. Patrick's Day decorations that would put anyone in the holiday spirit, but you know what makes them even better? If they're DIYs you can do with your family or classroom. (Don't worry if you're short on time. We also compiled ready-to-buy decorations that everyone will love.)

While the Irish holiday is often spent out and about—whether that's at a bar crawl or somewhere else where everyone is dressed in green—you shouldn't forget about the space around you when decorating for the holiday. Whether you're setting up for a shindig at your place (complete with festive appetizers and drinks, of course) or you're working hard to surprise your students with a fun room to walk into the Friday before St. Patrick's Day (which falls on a Sunday this year), these decorations and DIYs add the perfect mix of playfulness and style to your space. Keep reading to find 40 chic St. Patrick's Day decorations and easy crafts that you'll be proud to display this season.
