Make a Nice Wreath to Decorate for St Patrick's Day.
Download Shamrock Wreath activity
First, draw a circle around a dinner plate and then an inner circle using a smaller round plate or bowl. The ring width should be 1.5 to 2 inches (4 to 5 cm).
Cut this out
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 them into place.
Place the lighter color in the spaces between them and glue it into place.
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 templates and add them.
