Valentine's is past and I'm feeling the green! I love St. Patrick's Day not only because it is super fun decor, but because my ancestor had a part in it. No really, he was the guy who kidnapped St. Patrick. Pretty funny right? Anyhow I wanted a project I could do with my 5 year old and this shamrock banner was just the ticket. It has got to be the easiest St. Patrick Craft ever! You need only four supplies.
- Foam Shamrocks (Dollar Tree)
- Martha Stewart Crafts Circle Edge Punch Starter Set (Michaels, Jo-Anns, Amazon)
- Glue Dots
The Martha Stewart Circle Edge Punch is meant to make decorative circles like these, which are awesome and versatile which I love. But, I like to think out of the box and see what else it might be able to do besides paper circles.
I discovered that the punch lines up perfectly with the curves of the shamrock. Tra la, what a day!
I got to work punching the edges of all the plain green shamrocks. I figured the glitter ones were enough on their own.
I adore how the punch adds a more Celtic feel!
Next just get your glue dots and glue the shamrocks to the jute alternating punched and glittered. Be sure to use a few glue dots, or the shamrocks will fall off.
Now just find the perfect place to hang it, below a shelf, on a mantle, on a railing, you decide.
