Shamrock Wreath

Though I do have extensive Danish family lines I also have a lot of proud Irish blood in me thanks to my Irish grandmother. I'd LOVE to go to Ireland some day and explore my heritage (I've been watching lots of "Do you know you are are?" Love that show!) but in the mean time I'm celebrating St. Patrick's day with a little shamrock style. 

You will need: shades of green paper, scissors, glue gun, embroidery hoop
Step 1: Draw simple shamrock shapes in a variety of sizes
Step 2: Cut them out
Step 3: Bend the leaves of the shamrocks
Step 4: Dab some glue onto the center of the shamrock and continue the process going around the hoop. Voila!
What are you doing for St. Patrick's Day?

St. Patrick's Day is my daughter's first birthday! So we'll be celebrating with our lucky girl - and wearing lots of green, of course!

so classy! i love your paper. i opted for regular construction paper and feel pretty decent about the resulting shamrock rainbow:

miss b, your crafts are just that step up between homemade crafters without artist skills(like me) and true artists. thanks for the inspiration and creative muse.
