Step 1: Arrange shamrock paper squares onto wax paper

Let’s get started with this shamrock tissue paper suncatcher! First, take a piece of wax paper that’s twice the length of your desired shamrock size, fold it in half, and crease it down the middle.

Next, open the wax paper back up and use the bottom half of the wax paper as your canvas. Spread glue over the surface of your wax paper canvas and cover it completely with random tissue squares. You can cut your tissue paper into strips, then layer them and cut a bunch of squares.

When you’ve finished, it should look like this…

Step 2: Glue and cover the tissue paper squares

Next, spread another thin layer of glue over the green tissue paper squares and fold the top half of the wax paper over. Press down firmly to seal the top to the bottom, making sure it is flat and lump-free. Give the wax paper an hour to dry.

Now grab your paper shamrock template cut out and your pencil and trace a light outline on the top of the wax paper. Carefully cut out your shamrock shape around the lines you traced.

Stick your paper shamrock into a window with a little clear piece of tape to admire! It looks so nice when the sun shines through this shamrock craft.

Have fun making this St Patrick’s Day craft!

My daughter had fun with this shamrock art project, she has been working on her fine motor skills, so picking up little tissue squares and placing each one onto the glue area was a great way to get more practice.

This is such a lovely paper shamrock decoration! The green and white tissue paper is super thin, and the glue dries clear, so the green and white colors look beautiful when the sun shines through the window.
