How To Make Shamrock Garland Step by Step Instructions:
To get started with our today’s craft you need to download the PDF templates I linked above. Then, check out the listed supplies and gather all the tools and materials you need for this craft.
I will start our today’s tutorial with the accordion folded garland craft.
Step 1: Cut Out Paper Strip
Cut out a strip of paper from a colorful craft paper. If you are using A4-sized craft paper, cut out a 2-inch wide craft paper horizontally to get a longer strip. You can glue multiple strips together if you want a larger accordion folded piece for your garland.
Also, cut out two circular pieces of cardstock paper slightly different from your paper strip.
Use the templates to also cut out the clover from green craft papers.
Step 2: Accordion Fold
Start making equal accordion folds on one end of your paper strip.
Keep making equal accordion folds on the paper strip until you reach the end.
Step 3: Apply Glue
Apply. Glue on one end of the accordion folded paper strip.
Then, join the two ends of the paper strip together.
Step 4: Make A Circle
Gently press down the top part of the accordion folded piece to make it flat. To make it easier check out this pumpkin craft. Apply glue on the circular paper piece, and join it to the center of your accordion folded piece to secure the circular shape. Glue the other circular piece on the other side of the accordion folded piece.
Glue the clover in the middle of your accordion folded piece.
Make a few more colorful accordion-folded pieces for your shamrock garland.
Step 5: Make The Shamrock Garland
Take some thick thread or twine to make your shamrock garland craft.
Use sticky tape on the back of the accordion folded piece to join it with the thread.
Join the rest of the piece with your thread to complete your Saint Patrick’s Day Shamrock Garland craft.
