DIY_Shamrock_GarlandOur St Patrick’s Day crafts continue today with this adorable paper shamrock garland. The clover-like shamrock plant is the national emblem of Ireland so we often see it in representations of Irish culture – and I just love what it symbolizes. The patron Saint of Ireland, St Patrick, used the three leaves to illustrate the three virtues of spirituality – faith, hope and love. When I learned that, I decided I might just find a place to hang my garland all year round! This is super simple to create using 4 colors of cardstock – 2 shades of polka dot, a bright and sunny green and our favorite glitter gold from My Minds EyeMichaels also stock a similar version. You can use the SVG cut file and your cutting machine to cut the leaves or download the PDF and use the template to cut out your shamrocks by hand. Lay your shamrocks out in a line, placing one on top of the other as you go, then sew down the middle. Fold each leaf out to create a 3D shamrock garland that will bring faith, hope and love to your home! Enjoy ~ Lia
