Crepe Paper Shamrock Garden

I made these Shamrock Gardens in less than 10 mins. once I had gathered the supplies.  They are easy to do and the kids can help with this one.  I love how they look on my kitchen window sill.

All you need: 

  • Crepe paper
  • pipe cleaners
  • small jars (I used baby food jars of course!)
  • rice
  • scissors

                                                                                                                         

  1. Pour rice into jars
  2. Fold crepe paper over its self 5-6 times
  3. Cut out very simple shape pictured on the right
  4. Push pipe cleaner through center of paper, and fold top of pipe cleaner over to one side
  5. Scrunch up the paper and stick Clover into rice

    Such a fun craft and I bet the kids loved it. Putting them on your window sill will be a daily reminder of that fun and creativity. Good job!

  2. I have these adorable little glass vases that I’ve been dying to use. They will work perfectly for this. I’ve also been trying to add a little more St. Patrick’s Day flare to the house. Two birds! Yay!
