Make Your Own St. Patrick’s Day Projects

Grab a whole bunch of free SVG files for St. Patrick’s Day and you can make all these fun projects! I’ve joined up with some of my creative friends to share these projects with you today. Each of us designed an SVG cut file and are showcasing one project we think you’ll love.

I decided to go with a necklace because I personally don’t wear a ton of green. In my house, we also like to be sneaky about the green we wear on St. Patrick’s day.

Tradition has it, if you don’t wear green, you get pinched, right? But if someone pinches you, and you are really wearing green, you get to pinch them back! Or so our household seems to think.

A necklace is the perfect, not-so-obviously bit of green you can wear for a variety of occasions… well after March 17th.

How to Make an Easy DIY Shamrock Necklace

Make a pretty little shamrock necklace just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. I’ve created this design at a delicate 1″ wide, but you can resize to suit your own preference.

Materials

  • Cricut Machine and Cricut Design Space
  • Free Shamrock SVG Design by Jen Goode (download below)

  2. Ungroup the entire design.
  3. Copy the full shamrock shape and make a mirror image. This will be the backside of your necklace.
  4. Set each layer as cut. Don’t forget to mirror the inner gold “ring’ shape so that it cuts ready to iron-on the faux leather.

  7. Glue two faux leather shamrocks together.
  8. Add jewelry findings to finish your necklace.

I’ve created two shamrock SVG files you can download here. One has a variety of layers you can use to mix and match to create all kinds of projects. The other SVG is a much more simple cut file designed specifically for this necklace. I’ve already created the final shapes and sliced out the circle for the necklace findings.
