Easy Shamrock Garland

I’ve got a great Shamrock cut file available for you to use with your Cricut machine – grab it from Cricut Design Space. Or download either a Shamrock SVG or Shamrock Printable.

I used a basic green cardstock to cut my paper shamrocks. However, you can use a wide variety of materials from different shades of green cardstock to glitter papers. Make your garland as simple or ornate as you’d like.

This basic garland with just a few sizes of shamrocks can be made, start to finish, in about 15 minutes. I’ve set up a Cricut Design Space Canvas you can use to get a head start. Just load your paper and cut!

Materials

  • Green card stock
  • Shamrocks cut designs
  • Twine, ribbon or raffia
  • Glue or tape
  • Cricut Machine

Pick your Shamrock SVG file: If you have a Cricut Access account, this shamrock design should be available in your membership. Just search for image #MC47751.

Instructions

  1. I used white raffia for my shamrock garland, but you can use whatever you’d like to string the shamrocks together.
  2. Cut out shamrocks with Cricut machine and Jen Goode’s shamrock cut file.
  3. Glue each shamrock to the raffia in whatever size order you’d like. If you are using twine or a shiny ribbon, sometimes tape will hold the paper to the ribbon better.
  4. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly. Then 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!

No Cricut machine? No Problem!
