Now that St. Paddy’s Day is almost upon us, have you made plans on how you’ll be celebrating? This frugal gal loves celebrating without emptying her wallet and found a few fun and unique ways to show your St. Patrick’s Day spirit.

Dye Your Hair with Green Gelatin: If you have blond, grey or any other light-colored hair, you won’t have to bleach it for green results. Sophisticated Edge provides a helpful tutorial.

Dye Your Hair with KoolAid®: WikiHow has a great tutorial on how to temporarily dye your hair with about 3 packs of drink mix.  Try green this week and another color for Easter.

Chalk Your Hair Green:  Over the recent years, there have been many tutorials on how to use chalk to give hair a temporary color. The Beauty Department offers a nice step-by-step with photos and several color examples.

Give your friends green and tasty treats worth the price of gold:

Babble.com offers a copycat version of the McDonald’s Shamrock Shake. She also adds a brief history of the Shamrock Shake which can make interesting chatter at your party.

Crème de Menthe Brownies will surely disappear fast, so make sure you make a double batch of these heavenly delights. Better Homes and Gardens offers a recipe including a summary of how many calories you’ll have to burn off later at the gym.

Shamrock-shaped cupcakes are unbelievably easy without any special shaped muffin tins. Just use your ordinary cupcake pan and a little foil. The Queen of DIY offers a multi-photo tutorial to get you on your way to baking clover-shaped cupcakes in no time.

If that’s not enough green food recipes, here’s a few more:

Pistachio Whip

Split Pea Soup

Kopy Kat Olive Garden Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Homemade Crème De Menthe

Enjoy your celebration and don’t forget to send me photos of your successful endeavors!
