DIY shamrock garland

March 1st | DIY

Hello friends! Can’t you believe it’s March 1st? March means spring is right around the corner. I cooked up a little shamrock project to share.All you need for this project is some thick paper {I shopped the scrapbooking section at our Michael’s}, brads, hole punch, scissors and twine.

Each shamrock needs three hearts and a stem.  I folded the hearts down the center to give the shamrock more depth.

Punch two holes in the top of each shamrock to string the twine through.

So fun and a hint that spring is coming too!

These plaster heads are still watching over our entryway, which is about to get a makeover.

Remember this post? The winning color for painting the bench is yellow. I’m off to buy paint and hopefully I’ll share our bright, new entryway in the next couple weeks!

Are you looking forward to spring?

    I love Spring…and it’s hard to beat in Florida…but it already feels like Summer! It’s hard to complain about the beautiful weather we’ve had…but I wish it was a tad more Spring-like (because if it’s hot on March 2nd-I’m afraid what July & August will be like. ) :) Love the Shamrocks!

    Hi Lisa! I made this banner a few years ago and LOVED it, but my little guy recently crunched it so I had to toss it. I shouldn’t have because I see you don’t have a template but I swear you had one before? xo

  18. […] Plan a fun treasure hunt for the kids to do at your St. Patrick’s Day party. This is a perfect activity for younger kids, because the shamrocks are easy to follow and there aren’t too many complicated clues. At the end of the “rainbow,” have a fun prize such as a pot of chocolate coins waiting to be found. Shamrock Garland […]
