Glittering Shamrock Pin Craft

Sherri Osborn
After you assemble your glittering shamrock, you can add a pin back to wear it or glue a magnet on the back and stick it to the refrigerator or a locker.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

    The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

    Materials Needed:

    Start out by painting one side and the edges of all three hearts. Let the paint dry.

    Glue the edges of all three hearts together to form a shamrock shape (refer to picture). Let the glue dry.

    Use a cotton swab or old paint brush to brush the top of the shamrock with a thin layer of glue. Sprinkle some green glitter onto the wet glue. Let the glue dry and then tap off any extra glitter. If you prefer a less messy way to add sparkle to your shamrock, use glue glue or even glitter paint instead of glitter.

    Glue a pin back or a magnet to the back of your shamrock, let the glue dry, and display it with pride!
