DIY Shamrocks From Seashells

Spring is coming and some celebrates Saint Patrick’s Day. One of the related things to Saint Patrick’s Day that I fond most is shamrock! Lucky shamrock it is! Well, since I haven’t found any, I just make the regular shamrocks, but not from regular supply. I made shamrocks from seashells.

I made two looks of the shamrocks, one was natural look of the seashells, where I didn’t paint the seashells and combine it with burlap rope to add more natural look. The other was the natural look of the shamrock, which is green, so I painted the seashells with green. To give the Saint Patrick’s Day vibes, I gave very light green color. But the shamrocks decoration can be used to decorate your home for entire spring season too.


Things To Prepared

I always try to make easy DIY which need no difficult supplies so most of you can easily make it yourself.

  • Seashells ( I used clams to get a better and similar look to shamrock leaves)
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Burlap rope
  • Green and white acrylic paint
  • UHU glue


How To Make

It took only six easy steps to make this diy shamrocks from seashells. Let me explain here.

  1. Make a panel by using popsicle sticks. You can replace it with wooden panel of the size if you have any.
  2. Paint the popsicle sticks panels, each with different background. For the natural seashells look, paint it in green and white. For the natural shamrocks look, paint the panels in white. All of that to give a nice contrast between the popsicle sticks panel as the background and the seashells shamrock as the focal point.
  3. Clean and dry off the seashells. Find the seashells with bright colors, even tone and with the same size.
  4. Take three clams and painted it in light green to get the shamrock color. Let it dry.
  5. Take the natural seashells in amount of three and glue it on the white and green panel. Then draw the stalk with brush.
  6. Use the three green seashells and glue it on the white panel. Apply the burlap rope as the stalk.


My diy seashells shamrock decoration needs only easy skill and regular craft supplies. It would not be difficult for you to make.  Clams are easy seashells to find and delicious to eat. So, it would be great re-purposing project too.

  1. This is such a fun St Patrick’s day idea.
    I’ve made little mini pallets like this before and used them for decoupage or chalkboard paint but I love how you’ve used them here. The shells work brilliantly as shamrocks don’t they?

    1. Yes, it works well as regular shamrock but not with 4 lucky shamrock, so I just added the word and painting of lucky shamrock 🙂 I love chalkboard and decoupage, they’re beautiful! Thank you, Julie!
