- White coffee filters
- Dab and Dot Markers
- All-Purpose Glue stick
- Construction paper (green + white)
- Spray bottle filled with water
- Easel Paper or paper towel
Lay down easel paper or paper towels on your work surface to keep your work surface clean.
To Make the Rainbow Filters
- Take one coffee filter and flatten the edges to make a flat circle. Begin to decorate the filter using Dab and Dot markers. We love rainbow patterns to keep up with the St. Patrick's day theme.
- Once dry, using a spray bottle to lightly mist the decorated coffee filters so the colors bleed and blend together. Lay flat to dry.
To Make the Shamrock Window
- Using one piece of construction paper fold it in half, then fold it in half once more.
- Using the inside corner where the middle is, draw a heart shape with a pencil. Next, draw a second heart shape about 1-2 inches away from the first heart.
- Cut along both lines, when unfolded, you should have a shamrock-shaped frame.
Putting it All Together
- With a glue stick, rub the glue along the outside of your shamrock frame and attach your coffee filter rainbow.
- Let this dry and repeat this process for the other shamrock frames.
- To display your shamrocks, use clear tape and attach it to a window or mirror.
