St. Patrick's Day Party Ideas: DIY Shamrock Wreath
3.14.12
The finished St. Patrick's Day shamrock wreath...it's easier than you think!

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner—this year it falls on Saturday, March 17th. Even though St. Patrick’s Day isn’t recognized in Denmark (where I live) that doesn’t mean I’m not celebrating my Irish heritage. I made a simple shamrock wreath for the season as a reminder of the luck of the Irish and recommend you do, too. It doesn’t take a green thumb or an ace DIY-er to make, and it’s the perfect activity to try with kids—or your friends before you celebrate with a pint!

Materials:

  • shades of green paper
  • embroidery hoop
  • glue gun
  • scissors

Directions:

1. Cut out a variety of shamrock shapes from among the green shades of paper.

2. Fold the leaf of the shamrock in the center to create depth.

3. Take the smaller shamrocks and attach them at the top, making them get bigger as you go down. Alternate the direction of the shamrocks as you go around the hoop.

Voila!
