Hello, friends! I am sooo excited to share this tutorial with you today because I got to play with one of my new favorite materials. I really haven’t ever played with crepe paper sheets before. Oh my goodness, I am in love! With just a few feet of material, I was able to make a GIANT shamrock backdrop to use as DIY St. Patrick’s decorations. Pretty lucky, right?;)
Ready to get started on your DIY St. Patrick’s decorations? First for your shamrock backdrop, you are going to cut four 18 x 18 inch sheets of crepe paper with your scissors. Try to cut it as even as possible. It may help to use a ruler as the material is really thin.
Cut a tail with leftover scraps, and staple it the center of your shamrock.
That’s it, these DIY St. Patrick’s decoration are so easy! You can use adhesive to adhere the shamrock to your wall. I would suggest adhesive pop-dots or double stick tape (that are safe for your wall). The shamrock is super light weight, so just a few will do the trick!
To finish my party, I made a few extra DIY St. Patrick’s decorations. Cupcake toppers, wrappers, milk bottles, and treat sacks finish off the festive party look! These rainbow candy St. Patrick’s Day treats would make great party favors as well!
All of my St. Patrick’s Day party supplies came from Darice as well. It’s so nice being able to get everything in one place!
I just love how everything turned out! It’s so fun to have a project with a big wow-factor that only takes a few minutes to create. The pack of crepe paper has plenty to make more than one shamrock too!
I am so excited for St. Patrick’s Day now! My kids love it when we decorate for parties. I think my giant shamrock will definitely surprise them!
