St Patrick’s Day Garland Project


  • St. Patrick’s Day Garland Printable (download below)
  • Colored paper – in rainbow colors
  • Green paper, or green crayons, markers, paints, etc.
  • White paper (we recommend card stock, but not necessary here)
  • Stapler
  • Tape
  • Pens/ markers

How To Make It

  1. First, print off our printables: the clouds on white paper (1 copy), and the shamrocks on green paper, or white paper and color in the shamrocks (as many copies as you want).
  2. Cut your colored paper into strips. Make sure you have at least 1 sheet of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. Any extra colors (like we did) are a cute bonus!
  3. Assemble your chain by forming loops of paper and stapling them together.
  4. With your green paper, cut out shamrocks- at least one for each person.
  5. Cut out the cloud shapes, the tape or staple to your rainbow chain.
  6. Have a family night where you discuss all the things that make you “lucky”- your family, your health, the goal you scored in soccer…. get creative! Write these ideas on the green shamrocks.
  7. Tape or staple your shamrocks to your rainbow chain.
  8. Hang it up where everyone can see!
