Step by Step Shamrock and Lucky Four Leaf Clover Necklace Tutorial
Hop over to learn how to make toilet paper roll shamrocks and four-leaf clover crafts with our simple step by step tutorial complete with video.
Once you have finished a few toilet paper roll shamrocks and/or lucky clover pendants, follow the instructions below to turn them into Saint Patrick’s Day necklaces.
The video tutorial below shares how to make each one of these Saint Patrick’s Day crafts.
Step 1 – Use a single hole punch to make holes in each recycled shamrock or clover craft
Turn each recycled cardboard tube shamrock or clover into a pendant or lucky charm for a necklace with a few single hole punches.
Have a look at the video tutorial and in the photos above and below to see where to punch holes into the toilet paper roll shamrocks and clovers.
Step 2 – Add a strand of yarn to make an infinity necklace for each necklace pendant or charm
Cut a strand of yarn 26 to 42 inches long for each shamrock or lucky four-leaf clover necklace.
Shorter necklace lengths are best for preschoolers and young children, while longer length shamrock necklaces are best for older children, teens, and adults.
Step 3 – String beads onto shamrock or lucky charm necklace (optional)
Before tieing both ends of the yarn together to complete the necklace, add beads onto both of the yarn ends in equal amounts.
Or, write “lucky,” “Irish,” “Happy Saint Patrick’s day!” “Kiss Me” or whatever you wish with wooden alphabet beads onto a shamrock or lucky clover necklace as shown in the photo below.
Step 4 – Wear with pride on Saint Patrick’s day, hand them out as party favors, or gift them to family and friends!
