Soon will be St.Patrick’s day so we decided to add a little luck to our lives and craft shamrock suncatcher from a plastic bag and other things we found at home.
Today’s post is 1st from 60 junk play posts that will be published on our blog during March and April. Each post will be with different material found in our recycle bin.
With today’s post we are calling for Spring to come sooner and hopefully, luck will serve us!
Things we used for our shamrock suncatcher:
- thin green plastic bag (from recycle bin)
- t-shirt inserts (from recycle bin)
- black poster paint and brush
As you can see, a list of items we used includes items pretty much anyone has at home so it’s easy to gather these things and get started right now! We have used one sheet of printer paper to make shamrock template. To make shamrock paper, start with square piece of paper, fold it in half and then once more to get square again, than fold to get triangle and cut heart shapes 2 times, one for outside and one for inside. You should get something similar to a template we pictured.
