“Celebrating holidays is always special in our family.   We make special holiday-themed treats as well as decorations for our home. I have my usual spots like my front door and sofa table where I change out the holiday decor for the next holiday. I usually love to make the items I display, like this shamrock wreath, because it just seems so much more personal. My favorite is to decorate the house with things that the kids have helped me make – beautiful and made with love.

This DIY Glitter Shamrock is adorable and an easy St. Patrick’s Day Craft!  It only takes a few supplies that you can buy at your local craft store or order on Amazon.

Supplies Needed: 

A variety of craft supplies including scissors, paper, glitter and a can of Loctite spray adhesive.

Let’s Make It Together!

I searched Google for a “shamrock silhouette”. Once I found one I liked I printed it off and got to work! Note: you may have to play with the % adjustments on your printer to get the shamrock to the desired size for your canvas.

  1. Cut out the shamrock

2. Place rolled or double sided tape on the back side of the shamrock cutout

3. Place shamrock in the center of the canvas and generously spray adhesive glue over the entire canvas and shamrock

4. Liberally sprinkle green glitter over the entire canvas (place a piece of paper or newspaper under the canvas to avoid a messy cleanup!)

5. The whole canvas should be covered in glitter!

That’s it! Such a fun and simple craft that only takes a few minutes so the kids stay engaged and is super easy to clean up! This cute Glitter Shamrock Canvas Art would be a great preschool or classroom project!  I love the way it adds holiday cheer to my farmhouse decor!
