How to make a garland

Shamrock Garland Step 1Pin

Step 1

Select different shades of green coloured craft papers. Print and cut out the shamrock patterns from the template sheet. The printable template includes several different sizes, so you can select any size you want or you can also mix different sizes for the 4 leaf clover garland. Trace and cut out the shamrock patterns from the selected craft papers.

Step 2

Take a shamrock paper cutout and fold it into half (symmetrically). One by one, fold the rest of the shamrock cutouts into half. For each 3D shamrock pattern, we used 3 shamrock cutouts: 2 half folded and 1 plain cutout.
