Simple Lucky Shamrock Art Project

I hinted at a project yesterday when I wrote about cleaning up messes after a craft project. I wanted to share that project with you today! We have no Irish blood in us, but Lennox has been learning about St. Patty’s day at school so I thought putting together a simple project would be fun when Henry was over for the weekend.

Simple Lucky Shamrock Art Project

What you will need for this craft:

Glitter Split Pea Shamrock Art Project Craft

  • Green Glitter
  • Green Construction Paper or Foam  – cut into shamrocks
  • Split Peas
  • Elmer’s Glue
  • Magnets (optional)


1. Cut out shamrocks from construction paper, green foam sheets or any other material you would like to use for your shamrocks. I just printed out a picture of a shamrock and traced it onto the green foam for this project!

2. Paint glue onto the shamrock – the more glue, the better for this project! Elmer’s glue works well with a large paint brush.


3. For the glitter shamrocks – shake glitter onto shamrocks and then tap off the extra glitter. Once dry, I laminated the shamrock and added an adhesive magnet to the back so that it can easily hang on the fridge! The lamination helps from glitter going EVERYWHERE!


4. An alternative to Glitter is Split Peas! This is a fun material to use, as it’s not too messy and if you have a kiddo that puts things in their mouths a lot, you don’t have to worry too much – since they are just peas! When using the peas, spreading the glue on thicker, would be better!

That’s it! I told you it was easy but they had a lot of fun making them and fun for all ages of children!
