I wanted to created a fun

St. Patrick’s Day

craft for the kids.

They get excited about every holiday. I thought something SPRINGY would be fun.


FOR THIS PROJECT I USED:

2 sheets of card stock paper

striped green paper

polka dot green paper

scissors

glue gun

a 4 leaf clover image

pencil

styrofoam

ribbon

clothes pins

DIRECTIONS:

I took my 2 sheets of paper and folded the paper so I could create a box. This requires you to fold it into thirds on all sides.

{Using 2 pieces gives the finished box extra durability.}

You need to cut the 4 corner pieces so you can fold them in.

I used some clothes pins to hold my folded in pieces while I glued them in place.

{If you do not own a glue gun you could carefully tape your piece or staple them.}

I cut 4 rectangle pieces that were the length of each side of the box and then used my scissors to snip up part way so I could create “grass”.

I did not have a cube of styrofoam so I used some of my sheets and broke them and stacked them in my paper box. I did not glue it in place–just set them in there.

I then cut out 4 leaf clovers out of my polka dot paper. I only cut 4 leaf clovers for my bigger suckers.

I used Blow pops. I filled in with smaller suckers-I got a bag of AIR HEAD suckers. They had light green and a dark green sucker so I used both. I poked the suckers through the middle of the 4 leaf clover and pushed the paper up around it a little. Then I pushed them into the styrofoam.

I finished it off with a piece of bright green gross grain ribbon around the top of my box.

Do your kids have a St. Patrick’s Day party coming up?

Thank you so much for having me today.

I hope you will come over and check out my other projects and recipes and if you like what you see I hope you will follow along.

  1. Very cute idea Cheri!

  2. This is adorable, Cheri. I might have to make one big enough to hold 20+ pops for Jaden’s class.
