Need a little lucky four leaf clover in your life? Let me show you how to make this splendid little DIY Shamrock craft for your St. Patrick’s Day decor. You can’t go wrong with a little extra luck sprinkled throughout your house!
Ok – truthfully I don’t believe in luck but blessings. HOWEVER – it is so enjoyable to indulge in fun holiday traditions and St. Patrick’s Day is a good one to partake in. I always make sure to wear green so I don’t get pinched – do you?
This year I decided to decorate our breakfast table in celebration and did some easy DIY projects mixed in with vintage treasures for a St. Paddy’s Day fest. You can easily mix the DIY Shamrocks I’m about to show you into any little vignette or table setting for a little luck o’ the Irish in your home. BTW – you can see how I made an easy St. Patrick’s Day table runner here.
DIY Shamrock Craft Tutorial
- Use some felt squares (or you could use fabric or scrapbook paper – whatever you have on hand!) and cut a square piece, the size you’d like your shamrock to be.
- Fold the square in half and then half again so you have a mini square.
- Hold the corner where all the squares meet.
- Cut down the sides, making sure not to cut the corner you are holding (this is what holds the Shamrock together).
- Continue the cut to cut a heart shape.
- Unfold the square and you should have a precious Shamrock!
- You might need to trim up and round show areas.
- Paint a small dowel rod or skewer green.
- Hot glue the rod to your Shamrock and cover the stick area with a small piece of felt.
- Stick these Shamrock cuties into a Styrofoam block you have nestled in a cup, vase or vessel. Surround them with moss and you are good to go!
