Saint Patrick’s Day is a religious and cultural celebration that takes place on March 17th, the day traditionally associated with Saint Patrick’s death. You probably associate this holiday with the color green, leprechauns, shamrocks, and pots of gold. If you’re interested in decorating your car for Saint Patrick’s Day (and maybe bring you some luck), here are some ideas to get you started.
Use Temporary Paint
There are temporary paints that are safe to use on cars. Duplicolor Car Art Paint is one of the trusted paints that can help you decorate your car for Saint Patrick’s Day. Consider writing “Happy Saint Patrick’s Day” on the side of your car on green paint. You can also paint green shamrocks around your car. These types of paints are made for just this purpose so they will wash off with soap and water, but will also withstand rain and wind. If you’re ready to get creative, using paints to decorate your car is a good choice.
Consider a Car Costume
You’ve likely seen car costumes for Christmas, but did you know they’re also available for Saint Patrick’s Day? This costume consists of a green leprechaun hat to go on your vehicle’s front bumper and two green shamrocks to stick out of the two front doors. If you’re looking to make your car festive for the holiday, but you’re not much of an artist or are short on time, a car costume is the perfect choice. Other fun car accessories you may find for Saint Patrick’s Day include license plate frames and bumper stickers.
Try Window Clings
Window clings are another option if you’re looking for a quick and easy way to decorate your car for Saint Patrick’s Day. Make sure to apply window clings to a clean window or plastic surface of your vehicle. The benefit of using window clings is that you can get a variety of designs and images to suit your preferences. Take special care to not place these in your line of vision.
Use the Roof Rack
If your vehicle has a roof rack, you can decorate it for Saint Patrick’s Day as well. Consider wrapping green streamers or ribbons around it. Make sure they aren’t so long that they will cause issues for you or other drivers on the road and secure them well so they won’t come undone while you’re driving. If you have an antenna on your vehicle you can attach some green ribbons to it. You can also attach green balloons to the roof rack either lying flat or slightly raised. This is a fun option if you’re going to be in a Saint Patrick’s Day parade.
Decorating your car for Saint Patrick’s Day can be a lot of fun and a great way to show your holiday spirit. Just make sure anything you put on car is attached securely for your safety as well as everyone else’s. A party supply store is the perfect place to stock up on your Saint Patrick’s Day decor.
