I’ve set up a Cricut Design Space Canvas you can use to get a head start. Just load your paper and cut!

- I used white raffia for my shamrock garland, but you can use whatever you’d like to string the shamrocks together.
- Cut out shamrocks with Cricut machine and Jen Goode’s shamrock cut file.
- Glue each shamrock, in whatever size order you’d like, to the raffia. If you are using twine or a shiny ribbon, sometimes tape will hold the paper to the ribbon better.
- Allow glue to dry thoroughly. The display the garland however you’d like.
For extra fun, add tassels or ribbon curls to your garland string. You can also add a bow to either end of the garland for a pretty finished touch.
Change up the shamrocks with four-leaf clovers, add glitter or foil papers for a fancier garland. I added some crepe paper tassels on a second string of raffia to add some extra layered look to the garland. Experiment with your ideas and have fun creating!
