How to make this shamrock collage, step by step

First print out the shamrock template.

If you can, print onto thin cardstock rather than paper.

Step 2

Cut out the shamrock shape and cover with lots of glue.

We use white glue for our collages but if you don’t have white glue you could use a glue stick.

Step 3

Tear small pieces of magazine or scrap paper in shades of green. We used a gardening magazine as this had plenty of green images inside!

Glue onto the shamrock, overlapping the pieces of paper slightly so that you don’t see the cardstock underneath.

Fill in any white gaps with extra pieces of paper.

Step 4

Once the whole shamrock shape is covered and looking nice and green, turn the shamrock over and trim any pieces of paper that have snuck over the edge.

Displaying your shamrocks

These look great displayed on the wall once finished!

A great way to display them is to use hole punch to make a hole in the top. Tie a piece of string through so you can hang them from the ceiling.

Alternatively, if you’re making these with a class of children in school or daycare, they look great displayed around the bulletin board or even the door!
