Glitter Shamrocks

We are seeing green and sharing some of our favorite St Patrick’s day crafts for kids. From construction paper crafts to naturally green snacks we have a lot of fun St. Patty’s day ideas. Today I am sharing an idea inspired by our rainbow hearts. These are fun mostly mess free glitter shamrocks!

I don’t like to use glitter often… it is one of those supplies that can put me over the edge. I don’t like to clean it up. If glitter is used we usually move our crafting outdoors, but this time of year that isn’t always possible. To make our glitter shamrocks we found a mostly mess free way around it!

Supplies for your St Patrick’s Day Art:

  • Colored Glitter Glue.
  • A Shamrock Outline Printed on Cardstock. (Find one using a quick google image search)
  • A Plain Piece of Cardstock. We used white, but you could play with other colors.
  • Cotton Swabs.
  • Scissors


How to make mostly mess free St. Patrick’s Day Crafts for Kids:

Print out your shamrock and then cut it out from the inside, leaving the edges intact.

Tape down your base piece of paper to your surface and then tape down your shamrock paper on top. This way it won’t move while your little one is working. This St. Patrick's Day craft is perfect to do with kids of all ages. This mostly mess free process leaves you with a beautiful St. Patrick's Day decoration.

Take your glitter glue and outline your shamrock. You can use green with some gold accents, rainbow glitter, or any combination your little one wants to try!

Using the cotton swabs, pull the glitter towards the middle of the shamrock. Work your way around the edges until all of the glitter glue has been pulled inside. You can do a second time around if you want to add more color. I did another round on our larger one, but not the smaller ones. This St. Patrick's Day craft is perfect to do with kids of all ages. This mostly mess free process leaves you with a beautiful St. Patrick's Day decoration.
