St. Patrick's Day trees are quickly becoming the latest trend surrounding Ireland's national holiday and there's more than a slight resemblance to Christmas trees. 

In fact, they are Christmas trees. They just have some St. Patrick's Day adjustments.

#AllHolidayTree ☘️Happy St. Patrick's Day Pixie friends! It's the last day for my Shamrock tree?But I am extremely excited to work on my Easter tree! I'm really proud & happy with the styling of my tree. Here's the breakdown: The Happy St. Patrick's Day wooden sign- $1! The shiny thin foam shamrocks- $1! Using the hole puncher, I created holes in them, then attached & tied green ribbon to hang them. I think I used 6 packs of 12 shamrocks??The oval chalkboard hanging with our name on it, was found in Target almost one year ago for only-$1.00. The green top hats came in a pack of 6 for you guessed it-$1.00? The small Shamrock & Horse blocks we're only $1 each from the Target dollar spot. And the small plastic green & glitter shamrocks came in a set of 8 for only $3.00 on clearance from Michaels?Decorating on a dollar budget ????????????☘️☘️☘️☘️. I'm going to miss the tree decked out in green, but now it's time for some ??! Happy St. Patrick's Day! ??‍♀️#DessertPixie #FairyGodMotherOfParties #SeasonalTree #ShamrockTree #StPatricksDayDecor #StPattysDay #StPatricksDayTree #StPatricksDayParty #StPatricksDay #Diy #HolidayTree #HolidayDecorations #HolidayInspo #ChalkboardSign #HolidayDaySigns #HomeDecor #HolidayDecor #Mompreneur #Artist #HeartStoppingDecor #CricutMaker #Stylist #Crafter #DiyMom #TurtleCreekMadeMeDoIt #Motherhood #JerseyCityMamas

The usual tinsel and baubles that you see at Christmas have given way to shamrocks and leprechauns and it makes for an amusing image. 

The trend seemed to take hold last year when scores of people posted pictures of their new decoration on Instagram.

The idea seems to be similarly popular this year with people hoping that the tree will bring the luck of the Irish with it.

Failing that, it brightens up a room at least.
