This was inspired by our popular string heart yarn cards. For this project we thought it would stand out more to make one large rainbow shamrock, but you can definitely size the shamrock down to cards as well when printing.
You don’t need a lot of materials to make these, just the template, some string and needle! It’s also a great fine motor and stitching project for kids.
Rainbow Shamrock String Art – Materials:
- Printable shamrock template
- Colorful rainbow yarn
- Large needled (for younger kids, you can use a plastic needle)
Step 1. Print out the shamrock template. Using your needle, punch holes all along the shamrock shape, close together about 1/4 inch apart.
Step 2. Cut a length of yarn in one color, thread a needle, and stitch through one hole (tape the other end to the side to keep it in place). and thread across the shamrock shape.
Step 3. Repeat with more colors of yarn in rainbow colors.
Step 4. (optional) You can cut a colored piece of paper in the same shamrock shape and glue to the back to cover up the stitching and tape if you’d like to make it pretty on the backside.
