(This notebook, btw I picked up in the Netherlands and I love it. Maybe I’ll show you once I finally have/make the time to complete my precious calligraphy course. I’m 1/3 of the way through of learning how to make pretty cursive letters… but am still too embarrassed to show you. Too many ‘before’ pictures, and still no ‘after’ pictures yet.

Shamrock Crafts for Kids :: Step-by-step Tutorial

howto make shamrock

1. Take a rag pipe cleaner. Keep 1/4” on the left of your thumb and the remainder of the stick on the right.

Fold the remainder in half and in half again.

2. Each quarter is to be a section of the clover leaf.

3. Give each quarter a twist so that it forms a loop and then fold it into a heart shape.

4. Use that 1/4” section to close the clover four and curve it so that it resembles a stem and can be attached to something else.

What to attach your Shamrock to? Anything can be decorated with rag pipe cleaner shamrock. The above are just a few of the ideas possible.
