St. Patricks Day shamrock tree

So I’m thinking we’re getting a little obsessed with craft trees.  We’ve made scallop Christmas felt trees, Valentine’s Day felt heart trees and now an ombre St. Patricks Day shamrock tree. This version is far easier than our other two Holiday Trees and perfect to spruce up your St. Patrick’s Day space!

Could you imagine cutting out a hundred four leaf clover shaped felt pieces!? No thank you! I’m devoted to crating but not that devoted. 😉 This one isn’t felt but are actually foam glitter stickers that come in packs from Joann’s. Read on to make your own St. Patricks Day shamrock tree!


First up, gather your craft supplies: 

The great thing about craft stores is their current holiday decor is always on sale. I scored all these packs of glitter felt stickers plus a pack of toppers for $11 total. The glass candlesticks are from Dollar Tree. The styrofoam tress are from Walmart, cheapest place we’ve found them thus far. We had enough supplies to make two trees although we stopped at one, it looks great paired with last year’s St Patricks decor, I’ll show a mantel shot later this weekend.

St Patricks Day shamrock tree supplies. So easy to make!

Let’s get crafting a DIY St. Patricks Day shamrock tree!

Like I said, unlike all the cutting cutting cutting with the previous trees, all we did with this version is pin pin pin! Just start with the bottom row then overlap the next row of shamrocks and keep going! We used an ombre pattern but you can do what you fancy, of course. 😉

So easy to make a St Patricks shamrock tree, just pin felt stickers to styrofoam trees! #stpatricksdaycraft #shamrockcraft

So easy, right? For the topper, I gently pushed it into the top of the styrofoam tree… nice and sturdy. Voila! That’s it.

  1. Cute shamrock tree!

    I was always curious why the shamrock was associated with the St. Patrick’s Day and the Irish. I recently found out St. Patrick used the shamrock was to explain the Holy Trinity to the Irish.

    Even though I’m not Irish, I’ve had a special interest in the Irish because I love the Irish Blessings.

    Here is one of my favorite Irish Blessings:

    “May brooks and trees and singing hills
    Join in the chorus, too.
    And every gentle wind that blows
    Send happiness to you.

    May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
    May your heart be as light as a song.
    May each day bring you bright happy hours,
    That stay with you all year long.

    May your heart be warm and happy
    With the lilt of Irish laughter
    Every day in every way
    And forever and ever after.”
