Shamrock Banner

Craft a Shamrock Banner for St. Patrick's Day Easy kids craft


Materials:     12 ˝” x 7” Piece of Heavyweight Sew-in Interfacing
                    Green Permanent Marker
                    Red Fabric Paint in Squeeze bottle
                    6” Square of Green Print Fabric
                   White Glue
                    2 - 10mm Googly Eyes
                    Shamrock Shaped Confetti
                    Hot Glue Gun or Sewing Machine
                    22” Piece of Crochet Thread or String


1) Fold down 1” of the interfacing on the 7" end and either sew along the edge or hot glue the seam closed but before doing this lay the piece of string on the interfacing so that it is sandwiched inside the fold.  The side with the seam will be the back of your banner.

2) Knot the two loose ends of the string. This will be the hanger for your banner.

3) Cut a shamrock shape out of the green fabric and glue it to the center of the banner making sure you are working on the front. If you have pinking sheers, they can be used to cut out the shamrock to help prevent fraying.

4) Glue the googly eyes on the shamrock. Using the fabric paint draw a mouth on the shamrock.

5) Use the green marker to write “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!” or what ever message you would like.

6) Finally, randomly glue the shamrock shaped confetti on the banner to give it some sparkle.

* Green fabric paint can also be used to write “Happy St. Patrick’s Day!”
