green construction paper
gold glitter
green straw
thin ribbon in both green and gold


1. Cut three heart shapes from the green paper. Glue the tips of the three shapes together to form a shamrock.

2. Staple the center of the shamrock to the end of the straw to make a handle

3. Decorate the shamrock with gold glitter

4. Cut three or more 3 foot ribbons. Hold the ribbons together and staple them to the back of the shamrock at the center so that the ends hang down from the shamrock wand.
