How to make a fun St Patrick’s Day Mobile
Check out these step by step instructions for creating a pour painted shamrock. Then see it all in action in the video below!
Start by cutting out a few shamrocks from a thick piece of cardboard.
You will want this from a packing box, not a cereal box. Or you can just buy wooden shamrocks too! Prep your paints by mixing in at a 1:1 ratio of paint and pouring medium. Now start stacking your paints in your medicine cup. Go back and forth between the colors.
Then pour the stacked paint over your shamrocks!

Tilt them from side to side to get that paint moving.
You can drip them from one to another, give them a little nudge using a craft stick, or even do a second pour if you need!
When you are happy with your shamrocks place them on a piece of parchment paper to dry. Once they are dry, punch holes in the top of your shamrocks and secure to a stick with hemp.
Hang and enjoy! What to see this amazing creative painting process in motion? Watch our video!
