How To Make A St. Patrick’s Day Shamrock Bunting

Here’s what you need:

  • burlap
  • green and gold paper
  • scissors
  • twine, yarn, or string
  • hot glue (or spray adhesive or a glue stick)

This bunting is super easy to make! Start by cutting shamrocks out of your gold and green paper. Then cut out squares of burlap; they should be an inch or two bigger than the shamrocks on all sides.

Glue each shamrock onto a square of burlap. I used spray adhesive to make sure all corners and edges were attached well, but a glue stick or a few dots of hot glue will work too!

Once the glue is dry, it’s time to attach each burlap square to the twine to make a garland. Turn one burlap square face down, lay the twine across the top of it, run a thin line of hot glue just below the twine, and then fold the burlap over on itself, encasing the twine.
