Aside from wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day, I’ve never really done too many crafts for this holiday but we sure had fun making this Shamrock Wreath, which we’ll be giving to Truett’s teacher. I bet she’ll find somewhere to hang it up! Anyways, it’s not too complicated and there are a couple of ways you can create your clovers. We chose to use a printer at the beginning but you can use construction paper. I included directions for both. Depending on the age of your child, you could have them help with this project in so many ways! Have fun!
Tutorial: Shamrock Wreath
- >Glitter Sticks 60 Pack – Item #16862
- Glitter Glue Variety Pack Basic Colors – Item #16809
- Large Paper Plate
- Glue Sticks
- Construction Paper
- Or, if using your printer like we did, you need printer paper and can exclude the pencil & construction paper.
- Gather your supplies.
- We printed 4 clovers on one page. You can use this clover template.
- Using your scissors, cut along the line drawn for the half a heart shape. OUR WAY->We printed 3 pages of clovers, giving me 12 in all. We simply stacked all three pages together and cut each set out. Saved a ton of time!
- Decorate the clovers with the Silver Glitter Glue, outlining each one.
- While the glitter glue is drying, cut out the center of a paper plate to create a wreath shape. Tip: It might be easier to lightly fold the plate in half in order to cut the center out.
- Using a glue stick, glue the clovers around the plate to create the wreath. It is okay if the clovers overlap.
- Wrap a Fuzzy Stick around the top of the plate to create a hanger in order to display the handmade St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Wreath! I used my finger to coil the Fuzzy Stick to give a little more pizazz.
If you don’t have a printer to use, you can also use construction paper. Substitute steps 2 and 3 above, for the ones below.
- Fold a 6 x 4 ½ inch piece of green colored construction paper in half, long ways.
- Next, draw half of a clover along the folded edge.
Cutting out your paper plate does not have to be perfect, see mine is step 3.
