St. Patrick’s Day Home Decor Project

Make your own St. Patrick’s Day Table Topper & celebrate the luck of the Irish.

It’s that magical time of year when we all embrace our inner Irish spirit! Let that inspiration flow and bring to life some enchanting décor to honor your lucky charms. The journey begins with a delightful St. Patrick’s Day table topper – a sure sign that the Luck of the Irish is smiling upon you! This craft is not only a fabulous addition to your seasonal home décor, but it also makes a thoughtful hostess gift for that special Irish friend in your life.

And here’s the best part – it’s a wonderfully simple sewing project, perfect for beginners dipping their toes into the world of sewing. Get ready to stitch some magic!

As a Brother Sews Ambassador I design and create so many different types of sewing projects and I get to work with the BEST sewing and embroidery machines on the market.  There are endless opportunities for creativity when you use a Brother sewing, embroidery, or cutting machine!


Sewing Supplies for table topper

  • One yard or more of St Patrick’s Day themed fabric
  • A large bowl or platter with a 16-inch (or more) diameter to use as a pattern (or you can draw out a circle on pattern paper)
  • Eyelet trim
  • Brother sewing machine
  • Fabric chalk or marking utensil
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins

Making it:

Fabric Right sides together to cut

With right sides of the fabric together, trace a circle on the fabric around the edge of a large serving bowl or platter to use as your circle pattern. I find this the easiest way to get the perfect circle. Plus, it’s a solid edge to use as you trace around the pattern.

Large round serving bowl as pattern

Tracing the bowl with a chalk pencil

On one layer of fabric pin the trim around the edge facing inwards and onto the right side of the fabric. Be sure to overlap the edges of the trim.

Sew it in place.

Pinning on trim

Lay the second circle, with the right side down, on top of the circle with the trim and pin them together.  Sew around the edge leaving a 3-4 inch opening.

Two circles with right sides together


Sewing the circle leaving a 3 inch opening

Turn the finished circle right side out thru the opening.

Turn-in the raw edges of the opening and press flat. turn right side out and press

Top-stitch for a clean, professional look.  Make several of these for your St Patrick’s Day celebration! They are also great to give as a hostess gift.
