How to Make Paper Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

Pin it here.

 

I was given the privilege of decorating Clara’s piano teacher’s studio window. It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to do some craft experimenting and spread the word about my blog. With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, I figured it would be the perfect theme for the window display.

Today, I’ll share the shamrocks I made for the display along with a tutorial.

 

Supplies needed:

 

1. Choose three different paper patterns.

Cut one sheet into six long strips, one into six medium and one into six short strips. Cut one additional long strip for the stem.

2. Arrange leaf halves by layering three paper stripes as pictured and staple. You should end up with six halves.

3. Create leaves by stapling two halves together as pictured.

4. Next, either staple or glue the three leaves together. Add the stem using hot glue.

5. Place a dab of hot glue between the two halves of the top leaf. Place the illusion cord on the glue before pressing together. Let dry. Hang up and enjoy!
