DIY Paper Shamrock

St Patrick’s Day is just around the corner and we love to celebrate my Irish heritage, what better way than making a DIY Paper Shamrock, string a few together and you have the making of a garland, or add one to your favourite wreath.  I love that they contain 4 little hearts just like my family.

Supplies for DIY Paper Shamrock

  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • Dark Green paper (single or double sided)
  • Light Green paper
  • Stapler (I used gold coloured staples)
  • Glue Dots or any adhesive glue
  • Fishing line or clear wire to hang

Paper Shamrock Step 1

 Cut Paper into 1″ strips, then fold in half and staple top.  Turn bottom edges up and fold over

Paper Shamrock Step 2

Next fold edges into middle to create a V shape, staple near the edge of the fold

Paper Shamrock Step 3

Next fold edges over and glue folded tables together making a heart shape.  Once you have 4 hearts glue them together to form a shamrock

Finally cut a stem out of a contrasting paper, glue and hang with clear fishing line.

Happy St Patrick's Day

This blessing hung in my grandparents house and in almost every home I’ve visited in Ireland – one of my favourites.

  1. Thank you for this craft idea. I was looking for a craft I could do with my son and I didn’t want to go out and buy a bunch of supplies. We have everything we need to do this already. Hopefully ours will turn out as well as yours did.

  2. I just love easy crafts like this!
