St Patricks day lucky coin garland

string of coins   coin garland 2

This is a very quick and easy project for St Patrick’s day fun. I bought 2 packs of coins and strung them together with split rings. This is a decoration that could be used outside.


  • St Patricks day lucky coins. (I used two packages for this garland)
  • package of 12mm (.47 inch) split rings. I used gold.
  • drill to make holes in coins.

split rings to join the coins   drill two holes in each coin as shown   join the coins using the split rings

Step 1.

Drill holes in the coin as shown above.  Join them together using the split rings. I pushed the split ring onto the first coin and then pushed the next one on as the first coin held the split open. Then I worked them both onto the ring at the same time. It went really fast this way.

Step 2.

Continue on until your garland is the length you want.

About Elaine Kazinec

I have never met anyone who can't make wonderful things for their homes, friends, and family, only those who think they can't. The purpose of this blog is to show everyone how really simple most projects for the home are to make. When my husband and I bought our first home we were short on cash so I learned to be long on creativity. I have been told that I can make something wonderful out of nothing and that is true. You can too! Some of my favorite things are items that I found in someone's junk pile. I am going to show you how easy it really is. I hope you find the courage to jump in and attempt some of these projects. You will be amazed at how talented you really are.
