St. Patrick’s Day is one of those holidays that is a great excuse to spend an afternoon (or a whole weekend) crafting. Here is a shamrock craft idea that is great for kids and adults alike. All you need are varying shades of green felt and some matching embroidery floss and you have a wonderful craft activity!
I love the idea of making two-toned shamrocks for the occasion. Use our PDF or SVG template below to cut out the three sizes of shamrock. You can then use these shapes as a guide for cutting your felt. Stack different sizes on top of each other, or sew together two different colors of the same sized shamrock for a pretty two-toned look!

For the two-toned shamrocks, use a blanket stitch to attach each side together. We decided to keep our shamrocks flat, but you could always stuff them with some poly-fill as we did with our felt Valentine’s Day hearts. You can make a garland with these felt shamrocks, or turn the shamrock craft into an ornament by adding a loop of embroidery floss on top. For a shimmery flair, add some gold glitter iron-on to your shamrocks! If you like the look of stacking your shamrocks according to size, all you will need is a simple running stitch. Sew three stitches in the middle and you have a simple but adorable shamrock design! You can even add a cute green button in the center if you are feeling extra crafty.
