Shamrock Suncatcher

Here's a quick and easy craft (you probably have all the supplies on hand) for St. Patrick's Day.

  • 2 sheets construction paper (1 yellow, 1 green)
  • Crayons (1 yellow, 1 green)
  • Pencil Sharpener or Knife
  • Glue
  • Wax Paper
  • Iron
  • Towel/ Paper Towels

  • Shave crayons using the pencil sharpener or knife into a small bowl. 
  • Cut out shamrock shape (freehand or use pattern from the Internet).
  • Cut again 3/4 inch from outside to create outline of shamrock.
  • Cut out wax paper slightly smaller than shamrock shape.
  • Sprinkle crayon shavings liberally over wax paper.
  • Place second sheet of wax paper on top of crayon shavings. 
  • Place towel on top and iron.
  • Then glue cutout shamrocks to each side of the wax paper.

Place in window and enjoy!
