- Coffee Filters
- Green Washable Markers
- Black Sharpie ~ Make sure to use a permanent marker (you don’t want the black outline bleeding into the shamrock)
- Spray Bottle ~ filled with water
- Paper Towels
- Free printable Shamrock Template
Begin by tracing the Shamrock Template onto the coffee filter. Since the coffee filters are lightweight (similar to tracing paper) this step is super easy. Just place the coffee filter over the printed shamrock and trace with a permanent marker.
Color the shamrock with a number of different shades of green washable marker. Make sure the markers are WASHABLE. You will want the colors to bleed into each other when you spray them with water.
Layer a couple of paper towels under the colored shamrock and spray generously with water. The kids will be amazed as the markers bleed and blend as they become wet.
Lay the wet shamrock flat to dry. You could also use a similar technique as we used for out monster marker prints to achieve a couple of prints at one time.
These little Shamrocks look great hanging in a window. This super simple St Patricks Day Craft is a fun way to brighten your windows in a festive way.
