Shamrock Potato Print

Steps:4
Here's a quick way to add a bit of Irish spirit to a St. Patrick's Day meal: green shamrocks made with rustic potato prints. This project can be started and finished while a stew is simmering in an oven, so consider printing these cheerful good-luck symbols on napkins, place mats made from masking paper, and place cards.
Materials
  • Potatoes
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Scalloping scissors
  • Paring knife
  • Masking paper (available at auto-supply stores)
  • Green ink pad

Light Columns

Steps:2
Geometric "topiaries" inspired by the paper sculptures of Isamu Noguchi stand on both sides of this swimming pool. A few white plastic beach balls tied to weighted lines float in the pool like pearls cut loose from a giant strand (for safety, never cover the surface of a pool with a large number of balls).
Materials
  • Bamboo stick or dowel, 6 feet long and 1 inch in diameter
  • 50-bulb string of lights
  • Paper lanterns (ours were 14 inches in diameter)
