Lucky Shamrock St. Patrick’s Day Frame Tutorial

St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and I wanted to create something that would be easy enough Superfund and that anyone would be able to make it. To be honest I didn’t spend a dime on this project because I had everything at home. But if happen to not have any of the supplies, I can assure you it’s going to be a very inexpensive project.

This Frame was a Christmas frame from Michael’s. I got like four of these and I knew it would be useful someday. And here it is, coincidentally, it was green and it was perfect for a St.Patrick’s Day craft.

I’m not very into the green color so I didn’t want to buy different green shades of cardstock so I decided to just print each element in the greens I needed including the buffalo check pattern.

The good thing about this project is that if you don’t have any frame like this one, you can use any frame you have around or make a frame with cardstock like my friend Karina over at Living and Crafting did.

Lucky Shamrock St. Patrick's Day Frame Cute

As I always say, imagination is the limit

This simple craft is the perfect project for a crafty night with kids or why not? a crafty night by ourselves!

I created the files so you can print and cut the elements yourself and also sharing the SVG cutting files in case you have a cutting machine to make your life easier. For the sake of this project, I cut everything with scissors and a cutter to show you that it’s totally doable!

Also, you will notice that I don’t damage the frame in any way. I love making crafts that can be reused later on. This frame can go back to being Christmas decor or use it for something else.

I used removable 3M clear tape to stick the buffalo check backing to the frame so it won’t peel off the paint later.

Let’s start.

St. Patrick’s Day Frame Supplies:

  • White heavy cardstock
  • 6 gold beads
  • Gold thread or twine.
  • Glue
  • Double-sided foam take (like the one used for scrapbook)
  • Clear adhesive tape
  • An old frame. If it’s not green, you can paint it and if you don’t have any frame you can make one yourself with cardstock.
  • Printer
  • Scissors and cutter

How to make this cute Lucky Shamrock St. Patrick’s Day Frame

I made this quick video to show you the process to make this cute frame, but if you are more as a photo step-by-step feel free to scroll down and keep reading!

Firstly Print your files. I recommend printing them at high-quality.

Then cut all your pieces, you should have 4 shamrocks (in 4 different shades of green), 5 buntings (LUCKY) and the buffalo check backing.

Once you have all your pieces ready, take the darkest green shamrock. This will be your base. Cut pieces of double-sided foam tape. I wanted a thick separation between shamrocks so I doubled the tape.

Place the foam takes in each leaf and a narrower one in the stem.

Peel off each tape backing and place the second shamrock on to as aligned as you possibly can.

Repeat the process with each layer.

When you are done you should have something like this:

Now it’s time to stick the shamrock to the buffalo check backing.

I applied a single layer of double-sided tape on the back of the shamrock and placed it as centered as possible over the backing.

Then using removable 3M clear tape I secured the backing to the inner back of the frame.

The next step is creating the banner.

Start folding your buntings in half and glue it with the string inside.

Then alternate bunting and beads until you finish it.

Here again, I didn’t want to damage the frame so I used a super clear tape to secure the string.

Decide where you want the banner to be and apply a small piece of tape over the string and rub it well against the frame so it’s not so visible.

If you don’t care much about the frame or if hot glue won’t damage it you can go for it too.

You are done!!!
