How To Make
This paper craft is easy to do and cute for the Saint Patrick’s Day decoration. Follow these easy steps on how to do DIY Lucky Shamrock Sign Paper Craft :
1 . I recycle a calendar paper and cut it as a base for the shamrock sign. I cut it in a length of 24 paper straws times half length of a straw plus a little mountain as a base to the shamrocks.
2. Cut all straws into two. I used 8 colors of straws; pink, red, dark blue, light blue, green, yellow, orange and purple. I used 3 cut-straws on each color. So, the total is 24 straws (half straw), from 8 different colors. Glue one by one. Try to arrange pop-out color to less pop-out color, side by side.
3. Now, cut a rectangle shape along the mountain to raise the shamrock by pasting a foam tape. But before, cut green crepe paper in lucky shamrock shape.
4. Then you paste it one by one until it looks lush and pretty.
5. Make letters L, u, c, k, y by using a white card paper. Paste it one the middle of the rainbow straws by using foam tape.
6. Add some blings to add some shines by appling gold ribbon as a hanger and on the front rainbow straws. Don’t forget to add a little gold ribbon bow in the middle. Cute!
Easy paper craft to do with your kids for the Saint Patrick’s decoration. Cheap and easy to find material, just perfect for simple lucky shamrock craft. The lucky shamrock, the rainbow straws and the gold ribbon are complete elements for the Saint Patrick’s Day. Happy crafting!
