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
Cut Paper into 1″ strips, then fold in half and staple top. Turn bottom edges up and fold over
Next fold edges into middle to create a V shape, staple near the edge of the fold
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.
This blessing hung in my grandparents’ house and in almost every home I’ve visited in Ireland – one of my favorites.
