Paper Shamrock – St. Patrick’s Day Craft
St. Patrick’s Day Kids Craft
St. Patrick’s day is coming and we are super excited to share some fun and crafty ideas for the kids! We’ll be sharing some fun St. Patrick’s day crafts throughout this week but for now, let’s start with something simple. If you have some green colored craft papers at home, you’re good to go. Grab ’em and get started!
Yup! You’ll get a free shamrock pattern printable with this tutorial. Download the free Shamrock Pattern Template.
List of Supplies
- Craft paper
- White craft glue
On a piece of paper, trace the shamrock pattern from the given template. Use scissors to cut out the traced shamrock pattern. This is the base of the shamrock craft and you can choose any color you want for it.
Grab all the green colored craft papers you have and cut them into small square pieces, about 3 cm x 3cm square pieces will do.
take any one of the square cutouts and crumple it into a small ball shape. Similarly, crumple the rest of the square cutouts into small crumpled ball shapes. You’ll need a bunch of these, so keep crumpling!
Done preparing the crumpled paper balls? Great! Now place the shamrock cutout on a flat surface and start to stick the crumpled paper balls on it one by one. Start from a side of the shamrock cutout.
Continue to stick the crumpled paper balls on the shamrock cutout until the whole pattern is filled nicely.
Let the glue dry once you are done.
Wasn’t that fun and easy? How about using different colors instead of green craft papers? Sounds fun huh? Give a try and don’t forget to share a picture with us.
Happy crafting! <3
