Base for wreath

Print the Template pattern at the end of this page and cut out the shapes.

Place the templates on your green papers, draw around them and cut out the shapes.

You need four shamrocks of the biggest size in a dark green color.

Four shamrocks of the same size in a mid green color.

Three or four of the medium sized shamrocks in the lightest color.

Place the four darkest shamrocks evenly spaced on the ring, use the glue stick and stick into place.

Gluing first layer

Place the lighter color in the spaces between them and glue into place.

Gluing second layer

Add and glue on the lightest color smaller shamrocks where you think they look best.

You can also add some very small shamrocks here or use shamrock sequins as I have done.

If you don't have sequins, you might want to cut a few of the smallest size shamrock template and add them.
