Shamrock Wreath

This wreath is an interlocked paper chain of shamrock shapes.

Construction is similar to my pumpkin wreath from a previous post.

I made my wreath with twelve shamrocks. It would work with a few more shamrocks if you want the wreath to be bigger. (Finished size with 12 shamrocks is 14" in diameter.)

Begin looping the shamrocks together as in the pumpkin wreath.

Be sure to cut the slit in one layer of the first shamrock and start your chain by looping the second shamrock through only the unslit layer of the first shamrock.

Continue looping the shamrocks together, as shown in this post by World Preschool Mom.

Finish by sliding the cut edges of the first shamrock under the hinges of the second shamrock and adhering, forming a wreath. (This is shown in the pumpkin wreath instructions.)
