Since we loved the 3-D hearts hanging from our railing so much, we carried the idea to St. Patrick’s Day. We don’t decorate or do a lot for St. Patrick’s Day, but this is a nice little festive touch! These are made the same way as the 3-D hearts. We cut shamrocks out of different green paper scraps. My younger kids didn’t like the tracing part to much, so they did the cutting. Folding them in half was also a little challenging because of the stem. They liked picking which patterns went together on each one. After we had been working on them for a little bit, I went and hung up the first batch and they were surprised we only finished four since they had cut out 12 shamrocks.
The one thing we did different from the hearts was I taped a thread on one of the shamrocks before gluing three shamrocks together. They hung better without trying to get the hole centered and looked cleaner without the knot.
